Last night I secretly emailed the winner an email so if you haven’t gotten an email from me, I’m sorry! But thank you for participating in the giveaway. I hope you all had fun while you waited for Taeyang’s album to drop. We had a total of 4000 entries from all the 6 rounds! You international fans know how to win a free album. Speaking of international, thank you for making me proud. We had entries from all over! Asia and the USA, as expected, but there were also entries from New Zealand, Hungary, the U.A.E., the United Kingdom, Norway, Brazil, Portugal, and more! Taeyang fans representing the world.
This was the steps I took in determining the winner:
- For each round, I went through the list of entires and deleted all the ones with the wrong answer or duplicate entries from the same person or entries that were submitted after the deadline.
- I then compiled all the entires onto one big spreadsheet (Excel) and assigned numbers to them.
- Next, I picked a random number using RANDOM.ORG and matched that up with the entry with the same number associated with it.
- VOILA! OUR WINNER!
I’m pleased to announce the winner of the giveaway: Annie! A 16-year old from California where she gets all the sun she wants! Here is what she has to say about Taeyang: “I love everything about Taeyang, what’s not to love? He has that amazing voice that gives me chills and the personality that makes me fall for him. Everytime Taeyang smiles, it’s like the sun shining at you, it gives you a happy spring feeling. He is very well mannered and kind plus gentle, he deserves the best of this world. He always gives out different auras, when he’s on stage, he appears sexy, strong and intense. But in life, he’s always shy, quiet and very nice but also charming! and always dancing with energy. What can I say? he’s the SOL of my life ;D”
Again thank you for participating in ATY’s first giveaway. If you didn’t get the album, I still hope you go out and buy it to support Taeyang. Thank you for all your love and support towards the blog. This was our gift to you!
