Taeyang Envies 2NE1’s Talents


Aww how cute~

TaeYang said, “Each member of 2NE1 is uniquely talented, which is enviable.”

Big Bang, which is a member of YG Entertainment, introduced their juniors, girl group 2NE1, with the CF and MV for Cyon’s Lollipop phone. In an interview with “Sol,” for his song, “Wedding Dress,” he mentioned each of the 2NE1 members and praised each for their talents.

“I envy Park Bom and her unique and outstanding voice,” he said, “Especially in their song, I Don’t Care, her voice is distinct and unique, and the chorus part which she sang is really good. Park Bom’s voice is popular even before her debut with the group, and her voice here lends a youthful tone to the song.”

After Park Bom, the group’s leader, CL, and the group’s maknae, Minzy were also praised, saying, “CL’s rap skills, plus Minzy’s dancing skills makes a song have sensual power.

“For live performances, I find that Park Sandara is funny and always has the best expressions,” he says of Dara, one of the group’s vocalists, “I get worried because she practices all night, but her hard work is worth it, because Dara’s expression on-stage, are the most wonderful.”

This year, TaeYang with the rest of Big Bang has been going back and forth from South Korea and Japan. Earlier this month, the group released their third Japanese single, “Let Me Hear Your Voice,” which topped the Oricon Daily Charts on the day of its release.

He later told about how he gets recognized in Japan already, “A lot of people in Japan recognize me when I walk down the streets. And always wearing my caps makes me more recognizable, I guess. We always have fun broadcasting in Japan. But because we are recognized already, we can’t go out as often as before. It has pros and cons really.

Big Bang would be moving between the two countries to participate in award ceremonies. On the 21st, TaeYang and Big Bang leader, G-Dragon would participate in Mnet Asian Musc Awards, or MAMA, and 26 days later, would fly back to Japan for Nihon TV’s Best Hits Song Festival

  1. Aw, typical sweet YB praising his fellow record label mates. YG entertainment is definitely one of my favourite music labels/family. Their artists are truly amazing and gifted. Plus they have a shining star among them, and that bright star is Taeyang xxx. Can’t wait for the MAMA!

  2. i wondered how close 2NE1 and Big Bang were, because on the 2ne1 tv they seemed a bit awkward compared to like b2st and 4minute of Cube. Please Taeyang and CL get together haha. My favourite Male artist and my favourite female artist

  3. Aww, YB praising his fellow colleagues (or is musicians/artists a better word?) Anyway… YB’s just as great! 2NE1 praises him and GD quite a lot too, and Big Bang in general…=DDD

    Can’t wait for MAMA~~~~ GDYB~~~~ The love…LOL Just kidding…=P

    @vipwong – From my Philippine housemate-slash-friend, she told me that Dara, GD and YB are close since they were training together. (Maybe Dara came a little later than GDYB, since I never knew about it before my friend told me that…)

  4. I’m sure 2ne1 is jealous of TY/BB as well. 2ne1 hasn’t grown on me yet, but TY has nothing to be jealous of. Because he has talents like no other. (:

  5. i love this interview of taeyang..yes he is humble and appreciative of his yg family 🙂 i love the part where he is worried about dara..hmmm they’re close perhaps? im in my mad hatter darayang shipper delusional mode…love love love this interview especially the dara part hehehe! 🙂 taeyang is the man!
