First-generation idol Kangta appeared as a guest on 'Abnormal Summit' on October 31, where he chose the most impressive junior artists!


He said, "In the past, there was no case of an idol group producing, writing lyrics, and composing, so that was a strength unique to me, but these days, everyone has so much talent and every group has someone who composes."

Sung Si Kyung asked, "These days, amongst your hoobaes (juniors), are there any that make you think, 'They're no joke'?"  Kangta replied, "There's been one for a while, and they got even scarier now: Big Bang.  As time passes, they get even stronger.  They're unique.  They're the first [of their kind] in the history of idols in our country."


Jun Hyun Moo said, "I thought you'd say a group from SM but you have a conscience," and laughed.

OH! Finally someone else in the industry has said what I've been thinking since Big Bang first debuted. For those who don't know, Kangta was one of the main lead singers of HOT. HOT was one of the best groups in the country. What stood out about HOT as opposed to other groups was that they were one of the first to write and produce their own songs. Many predicted DBSK would be the next HOT, as did I until DBSK came out with Mirotic and I lost all hope since it was a remake of a German song. That's no disrespect to DBSK, they still did amazing things. But Big Bang comes out with five members who I knew could hold their own weight if they broke up and went solo. Just as HOT did when they broke up. If there's any group that could be called HOTs successors, it would be Big Bang. To be honest, I'm waiting for Big Bangs successors and I see it in BTS.

Oooh which german song? I loved mirotic

dbsk would've surpassed HOT if they stayed as 5. their popularity during their peak was something no other kpop group has experienced. and also i dont think mirotic was a remake of a german song. sarah connor (the german singer) also brought the copyright to the song. Despite the fact that the two original songs were the same composed piece, they have musical differences (TVXQ's version has a rap and multi-layered harmonies while Connor's has a bridge; the melodies in the chorus also differ).

Mirotic was not a remake, The songwriter sold off the song, to be released into two different markets.
