YG Entertainment’s Yang Hyun Suk revealed that 2 billion won (approx. 1.9 million USD) was spent on the teaser for BIGBANG’s 2015 world tour teaser.

On April 26, BIGBANG’s 2015 world tour “MADE-IN SEOUL WITH NAVER” was held, where a clip of BIGBANG that was filmed in the United States was revealed.

In the clip, the five members have their own solo story, then meet at the end as one. Despite the fact that it is a small clip for a concert, it was still made with blockbuster like effects.

After the concert, Yang Hyun Suk told TV Report, “We invested a lot into the world tour clip. It was filmed with keen attention in the U.S. Two billion won was used for the teaser alone. I wanted to make a breath-taking teaser for BIGBANG, since they are making a comeback after three years.”

The filming for the music video of “LOSER,” their newest song that was first revealed at the concert, is already over. Yang Hyun Suk said, “Even the music video took 4-500 million won (approx. 370-466,000 USD) to make. YG does not try to save money on music videos, especially compared to other companies.”

He added, “All the songs on BIGBANG’s new album are special. That’s why we decided to release two songs a month so that none of the songs are overlooked. We are also considering making a music video for all of the songs.”

“LOSER” and “BAE BAE” have already been introduced through this concert. The songs will be released through music sites on May 1.
