BigBang from another angle

BigBang from another angle

SINGAPORE - Fans got to see a different side of BigBang on Saturday night.

Three members of the top K-pop boy band, G-Dragon, Seungri and Taeyang, ended up twerking, dressing up their fans and blazing through 14 chart-topping hits on stage during their first fan meet here at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

The other two members of the group, T.O.P and Daesung, were not present due to conflicting schedules.

The Thinking Of You fan meet, which started at 6.30pm, attracted over 4,500 fans who were on their feet right from the start of the two-hour event, screaming their lungs out for their idols.

We take a look at the night's highlights:

Twerk it

Miley Cyrus would be so proud. The BigBang guys can twerk as well as, if not better than, her.

When asked by the event's emcee to show off their twerking skills spontaneously, leader GDragon, 25, pointed to fellow member Seungri, 24, and said: "I can't do it, but I know he can."

The hyperactive Seungri proceeded to raise temperatures as he thrusted his hip and shook his buttocks in tandem with the snappy beat of their song Fantastic Baby.

Taeyang, 25, joined in with his version of the twist-and-jerk dance.

G-Dragon, seemingly shy and reluctant at first, caved and twerked for a few seconds, to cheers from fans.

Student Chen Meijing, 18, said: "Seungri is so funny and entertaining. I can't believe he twerked so well. I really enjoyed this part as it is something I would not get to see during their normal concerts."

Playing dress-up

Those who have always wanted to learn a fashion tip or two from style icon G-Dragon saw him in action during the fan interaction segment.

In this segment, G-Dragon and his bandmates dressed three lucky fans in different themes - "hip-hop", "cute" or "sexy".

For the "cute" theme, G-Dragon dressed a girl in an outfit that resembled boy wizard Harry Potter.

Taeyang, who picked the "hip-hop" theme, did an excellent job of making his shy and nervous fan look like a star.

Cheeky Seungri teased his fan: "Before I dress you up, tell me who is your favourite member in the group? This question is very important to me!"

Of course, the giggly fan muttered "You!" into the microphone.

Having chosen the "sexy" theme, Seungri continued to make everyone laugh as he gave her a whip and told her to crack it on stage.

Student Tan Shiyin, 18, said: "The members were really sweet to those fans and they stood very close to them.

"Even though I wasn't chosen to go up, I felt so happy for those who were. I felt quite jealous, though!"
