Television screens made them famous. Through “Big Bang Documentary” aired in 2006 through the Korean channel, “MNET”, young people fell in love with the K-Pop band.
The documentary showed a entertaining side but also how one by one the members who wanted be part of the band before debuting were eliminated.
Three days after airing the last episode they gave their very first concert. The next year they released their first mini album “Always”. The single “Lies”, written by G-Dragon, was a massive hit.
From the very beginning the members were able to write and compose the lyrics of their own songs but they have also manage to maintain solo careers of their own.
