South Korea’s award winning and massively loved boy band Big Bang have now joined the long line of fashionable men getting a Minxing!
Being one of the most famous boy bands in Asia, Big Bang showcased their extreme make-over for July 2011 print of Dazed & Confused Korea. All 5 members of Big Bang met with the fabulous Jinny Kim of the Nail-Ae Salon in Seoul, Korea for her expert application of one of Minx Nails’ forever favorites – Silver Lightning.
The shoot for Dazed & Confused took place in an old rockin’ warehouse in Seoul, Korea where Jinny got busy creating the lasting effect of Minx Nails.
When Jinny first heard she would be providing nail fashion for the band, she was so excited. “I couldn’t believe I would be meeting the most beloved boy band in Asia,” Jinny confided. “I wanted to be prepared, so I selected the most stylish nail fashion that would match their Chrome Hearts jewelry.”
“It was the first time they had worn Minx, and as soon as it was applied, they loved it and commented on how great it looked with their jewelry,” enthused Jinny. The application was easy and because Minx Nails is a solid nail coating, there were no fumes or drying time required – perfect for a hectic photo shoot.
The Dazed & Confused magazine was published with 5 front covers – one featuring each member of Big Bang – and inside each magazine is a special 4 page shoot with individual member’s photos. This special edition was sold out in only four hours in Japan, and in Korea fans were standing in line around the country to get a copy the morning the July issue became available.
Top manicurist Jinny Kim admitted to buying all 5 magazine issues! “I love every photo. There were so many great photos including the photo of T.O.P showing Minx reflected against the floor, and the photo of G-Dragon showing the great match between Minx and his Chrome Heart jewelry,”
And what fantastic images! The photo shoot was conducted by Kim Jung Man, Korea’s top celebrity photographer who is respected worldwide for his artistry and integrity.

Big Bang’s popularity is not limited to Asia – earlier this month, Big Bang fans in the U.K. organized a flash mob event in the hopes of convincing the group’s record label, YG Entertainment, to bring the band to London for a concert.
