Yang Hyun Suk Reveals That Music Video for BIGBANG’s “BAE BAE” Will Be 19+
BIGBANG’s new music video promises to be a shocking one that has never been shown by the group before.
On April 25 and 26, BIGBANG revealed two new songs “LOSER” and “BAE BAE” during the concert, “BIGBANG 2015 WORLD TOUR ‘MADE’ IN SEOUL.” However, only the music video that was revealed was that for “LOSER,” inciting curiosity as to what that music video for “BAE BAE” would be like.
On April 29, YG Entertainment‘s CEO Yang Hyun Suk revealed the reason why the music video for “BAE BAE” was not shown at the concert. He said, “The music video for “BAE BAE” was filmed explicitly to be 19+.” He said, “Until now, it’s true that BIGBANG had a lot of their freedom of expression taken away because of music video ratings and things.”
He added, “Since the BIGBANG members are now in their mid- to late-20s, we made the video by just expressing the feeling of the song, the director, and the members with no censorship. After going through that process, a 19+ music video came out.”
He added, “It wasn’t a 19+ video just because we wanted to be sensationalist or sexual. It has quite a futuristic and four-dimensional feel, and as much as they were able to freely express themselves, you can anticipate (a high quality music video).”
“BAE BAE” and “LOSER” will be released on May 1, and until August 1, they will release a new single with one or more songs on the first of each month. On September 1, the album “MADE” will be released.
Meanwhile, BIGBANG gathered 26,000 fans in Seoul with this concert series. They will embark on a world tour through Asia, the Americas, and about 15 countries and 70 performances and plan to meet with 1,400,000 fans around the world.
