Big Bang Performs “Monster” on Japanese TV

Still from Big Bang's Live Performance of "Monster" on Japanese TV

Big Bang performed their latest hit “Monster” live on Japanese TV.

The group appeared on Japan TV’s NHKMusic Japan” where they performed their new song “Monster.” They performed the Japanese version of “Monster” which has different lyrics from the Korean version. Their stage was fresh as they unveiled their unique visuals which were similar to, but not the same as, the original music video. While this was the first live performance of the single on television, the group has previously performed the song on the Japanese leg of their “Alive” tour.

T.O.P began the song off with his dramatic sounding rap, G-Dragon followed suit as he showed off his long blonde bowl cut for the first time on stage, next was Taeyang who appeared in a muscular costume, Daesung looked more like a rocker with his outfit, and Seungri left a strong impression as he got down on his knees.

During the song’s refrain the choreography had the members fall to the ground as though they had been shot, the style of movement was reminiscent to a musical. This action expressed the hurt feelings of a man who was reminiscing about his lost love.

Meanwhile, Big Bang is busy finishing up their tour in Japan which began in back on June 17. So far the boys have visited Nagoya, Yokohama, Osaka, and Saitama. Their next stop is Fukuoka on the 23 and 24 of June.
