Big Bang′s new album Still Alive has managed to sweep the music charts upon its release.
On June 3, the promotional single from Big Bang′s special edition album, Monster, made it to the top of such charts as Cyworld, Mnet, Dosirak, Bugs and Soribada.
The album′s other tracks, Ego, Feeling, Bingle Bingle and Still Alive also ranked in the top five on Cyworld, Mnet and Bugs.
The single Monster gathered much interest through the teasers released beforehand, and the music video released with the album lived up to expectations with splendid videos and a strong story.
The Big Bang members portrayed their own takes on the ′Monster′ character for the music video to perfect their style.
A rep from the group′s agency YG Entertainment said, "The special effects that took about a month to perfect are so splendid that [the video] can′t just be called a mere music video. It draws you so deeply into the story with its blockbuster video styles that you can′t feel the five minutes go by."
The offline version of the album will be released on June 6. Big Bang is currently touring Japan as part of its world tour, drawing an audience of 255,000 people.
