BIGBANG members G Dragon and Taeyang recently interviewed with the publication Sports DongA, where they shared on the strengths of the group. G Dragon shared, "The public has been watching us for 10 years. They probably have an understanding of our name and style. Being able to multi-play on stage as well as variety shows is Big Bang's strength."
The leader continued, "We ourselves prefer songs that diverse age groups can listen to. The times when I'm the proudest are when people in their 40s, 50s, and even 60s listen to our music and sing along. It makes think, 'Ah~ I must be doing well as an artist."
Taeyang also shared his thoughts, saying, "Of course, there are a lot of idols who compose their own music. But if I had to name how Big Bang is different, I'll say that all 5 members each have a strong distinctive charm, and we can generate big energy when we come together."
