Idol Group Big Bang wins the 'Best New Artist Award' in Japan
The idol group Big Bang became a double prize winner as foreign singers for the first time at Japan.
Big Bang, who took the “Best New Artist Award” at the 51st Japan Record Awards, was shown accepting the award live on TBS-TV on December 30 in Tokyo, after having won the same title at the 42nd Japan Yusen Awards on December 20.
Daesung, a member of Big Bang, said, “I am so nervous with excitement. We did not expect to get the big prize.” T.O.P. made the audience laugh, saying, “I appreciate Japanese fans” in Korean in response to the host’s sudden questions at the award ceremony.
Another member, G-Dragon, stepped onto the stage three times at the ceremony: he took the stage twice with his group members and presented an award jointly with group “W-inds” for the group’s song “Rain Is Fallin’.'”
Big Bang gained success on the Japanese pop scene after releasing their debut single “My Heaven” last June, which reached No. 3 on the Oricon chart.
Meanwhile, group “Donbangsingi” gave a big hand to Big Bang’s accomplishment after passionately singing, “Stand by U,” which received an award for the second time in two consecutive years.
