Over the last 16 years of their career in the Korean music industry, BIGBANG is one of the legends who has made a powerful foundation that forms the Kpop music today. And even after going through some of the most challenging and rough patches, BIGBANG finally returns as one solid group with these hidden facts and messages in their “Still Life” comeback.
1. Written and Produced by G-Dragon and T.O.P
The first and foremost facts that make BIGBANG “Still Life” comeback becomes one of their most emotional songs throughout their career is that G-Dragon and T.O.P were the ones who produced the songs with one of YG’s producers, Kush.
Indeed, both members have previously proved their brilliance by producing many songs before. However, what makes “Still Life” extraordinary is because this song marks BIGBANG grand return to the Kpop music industry after going through some of the most challenging patches as a group.
And most importantly, “Still Life” comeback not only declares that BIGBANG is alive, but also states that they’re ready to return with brand new chapters.
2. BIGBANG Has Fulfilled Their Promise with “Still Life” Comeback
After 4 long years of hiatus, BIGBANG finally fulfilled their promise of returning to their beloved VIP fans.
Previously in their very last single before the hiatus, “Flower Road”, BIGBANG stated in the lyrics:
“I’ll pick a flower and kiss you
Our faces growing red
I’ll make a flower road and prepare it for you
So wait for me at that place.”Flower Road, BIGBANG.
Furthermore, BIGBANG has defeated all the rumors surrounding them despite having gone through some extremely rough patches. During the time when the public believed they were falling apart and in the midst of disbanding, the Kpop legends got back on their feet with its four complete members instead.
Today, BIGBANG finally returns stronger with “Still Life” comeback and all its emotional facts, only to fulfill their promises to their beloved faithful VIP fans.
“After the rain, instead of sadness comes a happy end
A seven-colored rainbow slanted like a sneer
Passed the seasons without maturing; I can’t mature (still)
Immature and long gone without maturing, Marchin’ Vivaldi
Tchaikovsky, greeting the seasons of today
Finally, the four at last.”Still Life, BIGBANG.
3. HIDDEN Facts: BIGBANG OT5 in the Music Video
If you take a closer look at BIGBANG “Still Life” music video, you will realize that there are some hidden messages. Through these messages, fans began interpreting that despite coming back with only 4 official members, BIGBANG still values and respects its original OT5 formation.
In 2006, the Kpop legends BIGBANG debuted with 5 members: G-Dragon, T.O.P, Taeyang, Daesung, and Seungri. However, Seungri left the group in 2019 due to a huge scandal, “Burning Sun”. This incident caused the group to almost fall apart. T.O.P even once stated that he would never make a comeback in South Korea.
However, now that they finally put their group’s hearts and pieces together, BIGBANG makes their grand return with a special tribute to the original OT5 formation.
The first tribute is the chairs presented in the music video. While it seems that there were only four chairs in the beginning, later in the MV, we can see one more chair with G-Dragon’s real name, “Kwon Ji Yong,” as the director.
Then, during a scene in the MV, we can also notice which chair belongs to Daesung. He was sitting on the chair, facing the camera as if he was about to take a picture.
Therefore, while the remaining official members are now Taeyang and T.O.P, what do you think about the last chair available in the MV, Kpop fans? Who does it belong to?
The Stripes Logo
Since the very beginning of its debut, BIGBANG has had a unique logo representing the 5 members within the group: the 5 stripes.
Today, even after Seungri left the group, BIGBANG did NOT change the number stripes in the logo. At the end of “Still Life” MV, you can see that the number of BIGBANG stripes remains 5. And fans believe that it’s a message for them that BIGBANG will still honor their OT5 formation.
4. A Bible Verse Reference as A Gratitude Symbol from BIGBANG to Their Beloved VIP Fans in “Still Life” MV
And finally, through the MV and lyrics of “Still Life” comeback, BIGBANG expressed their gratitude to the fans who have been faithfully waiting for them. You can see that in BIGBANG displayed one of the Bible’s verses in “Still Life” MV, Psalm 30:11.
“Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing.
Thou hast put off my sackcloth and girded me with gladness.”
This Bible verse reference literally means: “You have turned my mourning into dancing, put off my sackcloth, and surround me with joy.” It symbolizes all the grief and sadness of BIGBANG, which are now over. They have now taken off their sackcloth—representing a mourning sign—allowing themselves to bask in joy.
And they could only do it thanks to their beloved VIP fans.
5. BIGBANG Made Another Promise for Their VIP Fans in “Still Life” Comeback Lyrics
At the same time, BIGBANG also made another promise in the “Still Life” lyrics to their fans that this grand comeback would mark a brand-new era of BIGBANG. They will put all their traumatic past and misery behind and return to their beloved VIP fans as better people.
“Burying all the trauma from past nights
A round-trip ship running, risking its life to start anew

A good person more and more
A better person more and more
With the morning dew, burying my anger in the past
For Life.”Still Life, BIGBANG.
