Daesung’s History with BIGBANG

Unfortunately, in the midst of their bright start, Daesung and BIG BANG’s career was hit by trials. In 2011, Daesung got into a controversy as he was reported to have hit a motorcyclist and resulted in the motorcyclist’s death. Although he was eventually found not guilty, Daesung chose to take a year-long break from entertainment for self-reflection. With the absence of Daesung, BIG BANG automatically did not have full-team activities during that period. Daesung’s controversy, as well as a series of scandals in 2011, caused a halt in BIG BANG activities, as well as losing fans. Even so, at the end of that year, the group returned to appearing in front of the public in full formation. At that time, this YG Entertainment care group received the Best Worldwide Act award at the 2011 MTV European Music Awards (EMA) in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Afterward, BIG BANG returned to the K-Pop world by releasing the mini-album Alive in 2012. They again gained popularity through this mini-album, as evidenced by the main single “Fantastic Baby” which ruled both local and international charts. Unfortunately, not only achievements, BIG BANG’s fate was swayed after TOP was caught consuming marijuana in October 2016. In fact, at that time, BIG BANG had recently made a comeback with an album titled MADE in 2015. The album, MADE, and the title track, “FXXK IT” became the group’s latest release with the full formation.

After the TOP case, it was Seungri’s turn to be involved in the Burning Sun case and a number of other scandals. BIG BANG finally had to lose Seungri, who decided to leave and retire in 2019, leaving Daesung, G-Dragon, Taeyang, and TOP. BIG BANG had to bury their comeback plans on the 2020 Coachella stage. Although the future of BIG BANG is still uncertain, Daesung and BIG BANG have had good years as they have been named one of The Greatest KPOP Artists of Decade or the best K-Pop artist for a decade.
