With their “MADE” album project, the group released two new tracks on the first day of each month from May to August.

Though the project could have been a burden for both them and their agency YG Entertainment, the project has been seen as a great success.

Starting with the release of “Loser” and “Bae Bae” in May, all of their tracks received much love from fans.

The band’s hit songs “Bang Bang Bang” and “Loser” ranked at first and second place, respectively, on the year-end chart of Gaon Chart.

We will try our best. Thank you all to our fans, and we would like to have a long-lived career as Big Bang. It’s the 10th anniversary since our debut, so the prizes are really meaningful to us,” stated the members.

Held at the Grand Peace Hall of Kyung Hee University in Seoul, the event was highly anticipated by fans due to the star-studded lineup, including EXO, Taeyeon, Kyuhyun, EXID and AOA.
