Big Bang's Monster Passes 10 Million Hits
Big Bang's video for their song Monster has passed 10 and a half million views on Youtube since it was released at the beginning of June.
The track is currently at the top of the Kpop Mnet Charts and is taken from their latest release Still Alive.
The band has been touring Japan to promote Still Alive and the boys have two dates booked in the United States. On 3 November they will be at the Honda Center in Los Angeles and a week later on 9 November they will perform at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
YG Entertainment has announced that Big Bang will be performing inNew York as part of their North American tour, but no venue or date has been confirmed yet.
The boys are dominating the Korean charts for the first half of 2012. They've sold more than 400,000 units, well ahead of their closest rivals, TaeTiSeo (the subgroup spin-off from Girls Generation) who have sold 120,000 copies of their debut mini-album, and Kim Junsu of 2PM.
The track listing for Still Alive is:
1. Still Alive
4. Fantastic Baby
5. Bad Boy
7. 빙글빙글(Bingle Bingle)
9. 사랑먼지 (Love Dust)
YG Entertainment clearly has their eyes on the global market. The company has announced the opening of an official international Twitter account for Big Bang to help promote them outside of Asia.
