Big Bang has renewed its contract with YG Entertainment.
YG announced on November 2, “Big Bang′s five members G-Dragon, Taeyang, T.O.P, Daesung and Seungri have extended their exclusive contracts.”
By renewing their contracts with YG, about two months before their contracts are set to expire at the end of the year, the Big Bang members, who have grown together over the last 10 years, are setting a precedent of trust and loyalty that is rare in the entertainment industry. This is the second time Big Bang has renewed its contract following the first time in 2011.
Not only was Big Bang′s series of singles M, A, D, E, released over four months from May to August, a resounding success, the group gathered 1.4 million fans in North America and Asia to its sold out world tour.
Big Bang will be taking off on the Big Bang World Tour 2015-2016 ′Made in Japan′ from November 12 to November 15, beginning at the Tokyo Dome. The group will be meeting fans in Korea at the upcoming 2015 MelOn Music Awards at the Olympic Park Gymnastics Arena on November 7.
