And while some fans are speculating that “Still Life” may be the last BIGBANG comeback for a long time, due to a touching message from T.O.P…
The comeback was incredibly meaningful for fans and other artists alike. BIGBANG is a group that has been known to have inspired many idols, including IU, Zico, and BTS‘s Jungkook.
Goes to show that BIGBANG doesn't need to prove anything further because they already wrote their own legacy in the music industry and not only in Kpop. They are the inspiration of many young artists we have today. They were the one who shaped today's YOUTH. BIGBANG is BIGBANG.

And, of course, BIGBANG’s fellow YG Entertainment artists all view the group with the utmost respect.
In a special video uploaded to BIGBANG’s official YouTube channel, YG Entertainment’s WINNER, iKON, and TREASURE all attended a viewing of the music video for “Still Life.”
Before watching the music video, the three groups first talked about how excited they were for BIGBANG’s comeback and shared how much the group means to them as artists.
WINNER’s Hoony (also known as Seunghoon) shared that although BIGBANG hadn’t released music as a group in a long time, fans, including WINNER, “would’ve waited for them for a long time.”
And TREASURE’s Hyunsuk even shares that he and his members actually feel nervous to watch the music video because of how much they look up to BIGBANG.
Then the staff asked the three groups to describe what BIGBANG meant to them as artists, which genuinely showcased the groups’ appreciation for their sunbaes (seniors in the industry).
I think of them as a frame. They made this frame and many artists and music came out being influenced by them.
Artists that let us know the beauty of singers.
They made us be who we are today. Honestly, they helped us be where we are right now.
They had our back even before we had our debut and they really led us by example. They’re the distinctive color of YG.
They’re our idol, our celebrity.
And the reactions of all three groups to “Still Life” only proves how meaningful BIGBANG was in shaping who they have become as artists.
With TREASURE’s Yoshi even crying while watching the music video. Explaining that he “was always with BIGBANG’s songs when [he] cried and laughed,” and so the lyrics greatly impacted him.
Of course, all three groups have continually expressed their admiration and respect for BIGBANG in the past.
TREASURE even recently had their first concert, TRACE, where they showcased different cover performances of their YG Entertainment sunbaes including BIGBANG.
Jihoon: We did a cover stage of our respected sunbaenims, iKON sunbaenim, Winner sunbaenim, even BIGBANG sunbaenim, isn't this YG Family? We are YG!
Treasure: Family! Family! Family! pic.twitter.com/l9qNVu2NSK
