Popular South Korean idol group Big Bang will hold a concert in Myanmar in July, according to Living Sound Entertainment.

"We are planning to hold it at a venue with a seating capacity of between 40,000 and 50,000 fans. Only then, it will be convenient for us," said Jaw Maran of Living Sound Entertainment. 

Living Sound Entertainment, which organised the band's labelmate 2NE1's concert in Myanmar last year, is currently looking for a suitable venue to stage the concert.

"We need to invest a lot to bring the band here.  We will try to sell the tickets at reasonable prices for everyone without making the prices too high," he added.

Formed by YG Entertainment in 2006, the five-member band comprises G-dragon, TOP, Taeyang, Daesung, and Seungri. Big Bang is one of the top idol groups in South Korea with fans throughout the world. The group has released a number of popular hits over the past eight years with plans to release an album within this year. 

When 2NE1 staged a successful concert last August, it attracted over 10,000 fans although it was the most expensive concert in Myanmar.
