Korea's superstar boy group Big Bang's G-Dragon and T.O.P or GD&TOP have formed the ultimate duo! The trendy twosome GD&TOP get the party started with the release of their highly anticipated duo album packed with group and solo tracks, including the five (5) singles "High High", "Knock Out","Oh Yeah" featuring 2NE1's Park Bom, "Don’t Go Home" and "Baby Good Night" plus T.O.P's previous digital single "Turn It Up".
Before its release, the album already received 200,000 units pre-order. Upon the release of GD&TOP's album, the duo managed to rank #1 on various music programs (M!Countdown & Inkigayo) with "High High" and album charts (Melon, Dosirak, Mnet.com, Gaon and Hanteo) within two weeks of their promotion cycle. The music video of "High High" is also one of the most viewed music videos in the shortest span of time, gaining more than 4.6 million views on Big Bang YouTube Channel alone! It’s been about two and a half years since Big Bang had an activity in Korea and the awesome response to GD&TOP album release is a proof that Big Bang has been sorely missed!
No need to worry VIPs, after you have enjoyed GD&TOP album, watch out for Big Bang's major Korean comeback album on February 24th which is synergized with their major concert "Big Show 2011" to be held at the Olympic Park Stadium from February 25 to 27 of 2011.
