Big Bang has been spotted by the public while taking a summer vacation in the side of Han River.
Big Bang did a photoshoot on March 16th for Italian sport brand, FILA’s summer collection.
The five members of Big Bang has been busy with individual schedules after their last concert on February 1st. The concepts for this photoshoot were ‘brightness’ and ‘healthiness’; they were perfect for the images, and were stylish to prove their status as ’style icons’.
It was hard for the photoshoot on 16th due to the sand wind and cold weather. Big Bang members were in short sleeves and shorts; despite the bad weather, they were professional. While the yacht on the river was shaking vigorously due to the strong wind, they were still able to jump and dance for the photos.
This campaign will be on around May through videos, papers and stores after their spring collection.
Big Bang will carry out individual schedules as solo artists, in variety shows and acting, and is scheduled to release a next album.
