BIGBANG 4th Mini-Album is BIGBANG's fourth Korean mini-album. It was released as their Korean comeback, as it was the first release that they would actively promote in Korea since the release of their first Japanese album Number 1 (October 2008). As apposed to YG Entertainment's 2010-2011 trend to promote more than one track at once, only the song "Tonight" was used as lead track, however, all the songs were performed on different stages at some point, with even a 1-hour comeback special program on SBS.
The song "Hands Up" is a Korean version of the original Japanese version included on their fourth Japanese single Tell Me Goodbye. The song "Somebody to Love" is a Korean version of the Japanese song "SOMEBODY TO LUV", included on their fifth Japanese single "BEAUTIFUL HANGOVER".
BIGBANG 4th Mini-Album sold 28,000 copies in Korea on it's first week, and reached #3 on the Billboard World Albums chart. In the whole of 2011, the album sold 225,965 copies (all versions combined) in Korea, according to the Gaon yearly albums chart, with the different versions ending at the sixth and thirteenth position.
The Japanese edition was originally scheduled to be released on March 30, but it was postponed to April 13 due to the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami.
Two months after BIGBANG 4th Mini-Album, a special repackaged version of the mini-album was also released, BIGBANG Special Edition. This would be BIGBANG's first repackaged release, and instead of only including a few new songs, YG decided to release it as a new compilation album with a 100 page photobook. BIGBANG Special Edition only included three songs from the original mini-album, "Tonight", "Cafe" and "Somebody to Love". It also included three new songs, "Love Song" and "Stupid Liar" which were used as lead tracks, and Daesung's solo "BABY DON'T CRY". Additionally, the album also includes a collection of the solo songs released by GD & TOP, Taeyang and Seungri before their come-back as BIGBANG.
