On November 23rd, Big Bang will release a new album in Japan called, “The Best of Big Bang“.

According to reports from Japanese media outlet Sankei Sports, the album will feature 14 songs sung in Japanese, one of which being their famous track, “Haru Haru“.

“Haru Haru” was released back in August of 2008, and it’s become one of Big Bang’s most popular songs, earning nearly 22 million views on YouTube.

It’s said that the boys decided to release a ‘best-of’ album due to the immense popularity of these survey results.

Big Bang’s leader G-Dragon shared, “This is a special album that was made for our Japanese promotions, and so we gathered all the songs which our Japanese fans specifically wanted to hear. We’ve worked hard on this album to please our fans.”

Many auditioning TV shows and C’est Si Bon attracted people’s attention to folk music. But I see that folk song is having its gold age since acoustic guitars are on good sales.”
Jang looks up to folk singers Bob Dylan and Roberta Joni Mitchell, and says, “I think everything needs its balance. I wish K-pop broadens its genre as folk music gains more public recognition.”
2011 The 1st Paju Folk Festival will be held for three days. On the 1st, folk singers Han Dae Soo, Yoon Hyung Joo, Lim Ji Hoon, and Park Eun Ok perform.
