Big Bang “Tonight” – Kpop Music Mondays

March 8, 2011

Don’t act like you didn’t see it coming! This week we review Big Bang’s “Tonight” and try to figure out if TOP murdered Daesung.

So we tried to do our own Secret Garden version for this week’s Kpop Music Monday. If you haven’t seen it by now, Big Bang did their own parody of Secret Garden, which was hilarious. And we gotta say, pretending to be each other was a lot more difficult than we expected. In fact, this video took us a lot longer to film than our other Music Mondays, because we were trying to get down each other’s isms. We’ll put up the blooper footage on our Bonus Page tomorrow, and – let me tell you – there’s a lot of stuff that went wrong! Ah! We’ve got a lot more respect for Secret Garden now as a result.

Back to Big Bang’s “Tonight,” it’s a cool video shot in what looks like Las Vegas, and the song is really awesome and we’ve been singing it all week…but does anyone know what the story’s actually about? What’s the girl doing with both TOP and Daesung? Who is she with? Why’s Taeyang driving around in his car all the time? When will GD find the elevator? Who knows!

If you do know, or if you have any ideas about the video, you’re in luck, because we have a great giveaway for you this time. Shazam! We’re giving away TWO BIG BANG CDs!!!! Here’s what you can do to win:

CD #1) For our YouTube Subscribers: We’ll give away one CD to a YouTube subscriber who tells us what they think the story line was actually about. Leave your answers either in the video to our YouTube page, or here (but please leave your YouTube user name as well, just in case you win :D)

CD #2) For our Tumblr Followers: Quite simply, the easiest way for you to win. Got a Tumblr account? Reblog our post over at our Tumblr page! Don’t make your own post for the video. We can’t track and pick the winner that way.

BAM! So, there you go! 26 episodes in, half a year of Music Mondays complete! We can’t believe we’ve been doing this for this long now! Huzzah! As always, JB and Annie from [닉쑤] Enjoy Your Happy Life~* are awesome for so diligently translating all of our videos, ALL OF THEM, into Korean. Also, if you’re not one of the winners for the contest, you can still get yourself a copy of the Big Bang Tonight CD by clicking on the banner below!

  1. OMG, I just realised I thought TOP looked just like a young David Bowie, or more accurately, Dr. Spock since the first time I saw Big Bang was in that Coffee Prince parody. Sorry Martina, but I still think TOP is… well… not that cute, even now. Maybe when he gets older and start looking like David Bowie somewhat around the Labyrinth days (or even a little after that).

  5. My take on "Tonight":

    In Vegas…

    Daesung falls in love with this girl, but she's secretly in love TOP. She only becomes the girlfriend of Daesung in order to get close to TOP. After realizing TOP is unattainable, she dumps Daesung and stalks TOP and forces him into being her lover by trapping GD in the hotel. TOP complies only for the safety of GD and does not care for the girl. TOP despises her and doesn't want anything to do with her, knowing Daesung cares so much for her. But this girl is determined to latch herself onto TOP.

    On the other hand, Daesung is traumatized by her betrayal and returns to his safe haven in the desert to cry over the girl. He reminisces about their time together, but because of his girl's happiness he does not try to win her back.

    GD is suppose to meet them at the amusement park, but he doesn't show up so Taeyang becomes very worried and goes in search of him, knowing the girl got something to do with his disappearance. He drives everywhere in town in his shinning black car. He is secretly contacted by TOP and is told where to find GD. GD is rescued by Taeyang. Once rescued, he realizes no one has contacted Seungri and with Taeyang goes to find him, worried he has been involved in this mess.

    Seungri waited under the creepy clown for hours waiting for his hyungs, but since they never came, he went to have some fun himself.

    TOP puts a sleeping pill in the girl's drink. He pretended to enjoy himself in the car, dragging out the time as he waits for Taeyang's call. Back in the hotel, the girl passes out and TOP gets Taeyang's call. Once insured of GD's safely, he leaves the room, done with putting up with the girl. He sees that its still "a beautiful night" and goes with the rest of Big Bang to enjoy Vegas.

  6. So, here's the story:

    Big Bang is an act of an international circus show, and one of their US spots is in Las Vegas. This explains their setting in the desert with the House of Mirrors type of buildings around. After finishing their last show, they survey the empty desert that was once full of colorful circus-like props. During this, the ring leader/boss (who is off camera) has given them one night for themselves before the circus heads off to their next stop. Since Seungri is not of legal age to fully enjoy Las Vegas, he heads off to the beach and reminisces on his career as a circus performer and wonders if he should have stayed in Korea instead to be with his childhood sweetheart. In the meantime, during the day, Daesung meets a lovely girl, and they hit it off right away. Flirting and chemistry in the air, Daesung invites her over to a motel as a memorable night before he takes the road. Since, his chances of being with her again are rare, he wants to be with her to its maximum. When he gets to the motel that night and enters the room where they were arranged to meet, he realizes that he has been ditched. This leads him to fantasize in depression of what would have happened if she were there with him that night. The thing is, off camera, this “lovely lady” met TOP, who happens to be the main act of this international circus, at a casino and went on a crazy Las Vegas night with him, filled with alcohol and sexy TOP stares. At the same casino/hotel, GD sees a show of Cirque du Soleil and instantly falls in love with one of the acrobats. He’s desperate to find her and confess his newly sparked love, so he looks for her hotel room. This explains why he walking down the hallway, looking for the hotel room number that is the gateway to his soul, hahaa. Meanwhile, Taeyang used his current savings to rent a fancy car, and decided to take full advantage of it and roams the streets because he’s been so tired of being in the backseat of RV’s, train carts, and airplanes. Back to TOP and this “lovely lady”, after a hot one night fling, TOP realizes what he’s just done, and is afraid of impregnating the lady. Then he just buttons up his shirt once he realizes that he’s leaving the city the next day, never seeing her again, and eliminating the future responsibility from his shoulders.

    THE END :D

  10. The MV starts with shaman GD casting a spell to create imaginary girl for TOP and Daesung! In a reality there is no girl explaining why she disappears every once in a while! NO GUUUUUURL!!
    TOP doesn’t want the girl but Daesung falls for her!
    Seungri knows the truth about GD and goes to the beach because he can’t decide wether to tell the truth or not to TOP and Daesung.
    Taeyang is driving around looking for Seungri so that Seungri can convince GD to create imaginary girl for Taeyang too. HE NEEDS A GUUUURL!
    In the end Seungri tells the truth and they all gather up in the desert to cast a spell to get rid of the girl.
    The last scene is TOP looking at his reflecion since he only loves himself~

  11. i vote for Super Junior M ^^ i like Big Bang too but i just like SJM a little bit more. i don't understand neither Korean nor Chinese so i judged by the melody and beats. SJM's "perfection" makes me feel energetic and BigBang's "tonight" is like… for hanging out with friends drinking. in term of the videos, they give out different feelings. SJM's MV is like a good MV but i'll say that BigBand's MV is like a HOLLYWOOD movie trailer ^^ however, i'm bias because i'm an ELF ^^

    Ithough i was confused about the video i think this is what happened:A girl runs off to vegas with her boyfriend Daesung to win big at the casinos, but things dont go as planned so she leaves Daesung and becomes a hooker (with a heart of gold) There she meets her client TOP who is a caberet singer (hello gold blazer), but he doesnt like dating a prostitute and feels depressed about it. all this time daesung is whining about his grilfriend who ditched him and he snaps! Becoming schizophrenic. His alter ego is Seugri who appears when Deasung gets depressed and cant handle reality and just needs a walk on the beach! TOP also slips into depression and no longer finds the will to dance and so he creates an alter ego rapper version of himself who wears fur named G-Dragon. They both have blonde hair – the bond that connects them. But when he becomes G-dragon he cant remember where he lives so he keeps getting lost. Meanwhile…Teayang is a hip young cop who is trying to crack down of the prostitution rates in Vegas and is trying to hunt down the hooker and arrest her so he is stalking her client and her ex boyfriend, always showing up where they have been!!!____GENIUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Hey! Hey!
    This is what I think happened in the mv:
    Since G.D. didn’t have a girl to spend his time and everyone else left, he decided to walk around the hotel to kill time. Seungri went to the beach to chill and also forget that he didn’t have a girlfriend to spend time with. Taeyang was enjoying his time in Vegas by taking a drive around the city and might hit a club.
    While G.D., Taeyang and Seungri were doing their own thing, trying to not think of women. T.O.P and Daesung were unfortunately in a love triangle.
    Daesung met this girl and they fell in love. Well, he thought they were in love. Later on, the girl somehow hooked up with T.O.P (maybe because of his super hotness). She was all over him and then T.O.P realizes that he was bored since he got the girl too easy. Or, he could be feeling guilty for taking Daesung’s girl and couldn’t enjoy himself. During T.O.P’s boredom, Daesung was depressed, reminiscing about the good times with his ex, eventually going back to a motel room where they had hot times together to further torture himself with remembering how it used to be.

  14. Here's my story for the BigBang – Tonight MV. :)
    I think the story is that both TOP and Daesung got dumped by the girl and reflect their memories they made with her in the past throughout the video. TOP keeps thinking about the time when she was by his side and slept in his bed while Daesung is driving through the desert first and is later having nightmares and waking up all sweaty because he can feel someone else is with her.
    While GD seems to be trapped in the hotel walking the hallway up and down, he's just got it going on. You can see it by the smirk on his face that he just did stuff with that girl the other two did before and really enjoyed it. Him mentioning that he's a bad boy but he's nice kind of proves that he has been doing something bad that blew her mind.
    As for Taeyang and Sungri it's that they're secretly in love with the girl but know they will never have her. So to get her out of their heads Seungri went to the beach and Taeyang drove around town all night. "Tonight" only one of them has been able to get the girl and that's GD, while all the others are frustrated and hurt.
    But in the end all of the meet in the desert because she wouldn't want to stay with any of them.
