BESTie appeared on an episode of  Noisey, a documentary series on VICELAND that explores “the cultures and artists behind some of the world’s most compelling music scenes.” During the episode, BESTie gave an interview about their lives as K-Pop idols.

The girls were asked how their lives had been affected since becoming idols and began joking about how their lives were almost the same, except when it came to dating.

They go on to talk about the reason that many agencies prevent their idols from dating. They explained that “typically, idol fans want us to be their boyfriends or girlfriends” and that if an idol is revealed to be dating someone, it can jeopardize the group’s popularity.

After the interview, BESTie’s managers can be heard criticizing the group for their comments and for being too open about the real reasons that they do not date.

You can watch the full episode of Noisey: Seoul, as well as the other episodes on VICELAND’s website.

Local fans of the K-pop group Big Bang are finally getting a chance to see all five members performing together in Seoul.

The group unveiled its plans yesterday to hold two concerts, on Jan. 25 and 26 at Seoul Olympic Park, in the southeast of the city, in a show called “2014 Big Bang +a in Seoul.”

“The group will start the [new year] with fans in Korea,” said the group’s agency YG Entertainment.

“The news will be greatly welcomed by local fans as it has been a year since all of them shared a stage together here.”

Big Bang’s last full-scale tour, “Big Bang Alive Galaxy Tour The Final,” wrapped up in January of this year.

Since then, the members of the group spent most of 2013 working on solo projects. They are performing as Big Bang only in a few concerts in Japan in November and December, along with a brief appearance at the Mnet Asian Music Awards in Hong Kong.
