The group was created by YG Entertainment Inc. through a long audition process which aired on TV as a 10 episode documentary.

They made their debut at the YG Family 10th Anniversary Concert on August 19th, 2006. Big Bang has been labelled as the "Revolutionary Group of Korean Music Wave" for their unique urban-originated music and fashion style. The members' involvement in composing and producing their own music, most notably G-Dragon's, has earned them respect and praise from music industry experts.

The group's turning point came with their hit song Lies, which stayed at number one on Korean charts for a record-breaking seven consecutive weeks. Their follow up releases, Hot Issue and Stand Up, furthered their success, spawning hits such as Last Farewell and Haru Haru. ...show less
