[NEWS] 250K USD paid For Big Bang's 6 Songs at Soundfest in Vietnam! (120416)

| Monday, April 16
Soundfest is considered to be hugely successful in term of the first large-scale concert in Vietnam. Before, KAMA and Loresto Fest both tried to held the event annually however, advertisement and list of artists were less competitive. Only when Coca-Cola and Samsung took the event, the dream of bringing world-class artists to Vietnam came true.

SoundFest organizers, themselves were very concerned about SoundFest turning into…Big Bang Show. Inviting the 5 boys at their peak in K-Pop could bring both advantages and disadvantages. Everyone could see the benefits in term of selling tickets and massive interest from press. However, K-Pop is a way of marking Teenage characteristics – very hard to be controlled. The evidence was that Coca-Cola had almost cancelled Big Bang’s performances when they finished the 2nd song, before knowing that the audience could be under control.
As usual, Big Bang was supposed to perform only before Taio Cruz but in the end, their performance was pushed before other two artists.

In their 250 000 USD contract, Big Bang didn’t attend any press conference nor interviews, only rehearsal once, sing 6 songs at exactly 8 pm and leave Vietnam, like keep moving shows between countries. Big Bang arrived at the stage around 7pm, with the managers and camera crews, without any security guards unlike other Korean artists. G-Dragon was holding one cigarette on his hand, putting it away before being taken photos (for the local press).
When singing at SoundFest’s stage, Big Bang was not showy and had a relaxed performance. They performed and laughed at some pigeons used for previous performance. G-Dragon helped the MCs to repeat “Move Back” in Vietnamese to audiences who were pushing in the back. 30 min was short but it seemed that everybody was satisfied. The attraction of Big Bang was from absolute simply and not being showy.

250000USD for 6 songs: Lie, Fantastic Baby… – It’s enough!
