YG recently released information about Big Bang schedule for next year and it seems like it will be a very busy year for Taeyang.
Here are the translations of the parts relating to Taeyang
4. On Seungri and Big Bang’s album plans:
At the time, we planned to kick off Big Bang’s Japanese tour in April of next year, so we wanted to promote Big Bang’s new album for two months, beginning February 1st. Because of this, GD&TOP and Seungri’s album promotions would have been shorter than normal.
Fortunately, we were able to delay Big Bang’s Japanese promotions by one month.
-stuff on GD &TOP and Seungri
The dates for Big Bang’s album will be revealed at another time through the official channel.
5. Will the “BIG SHOW” be held early next year?
Big Bang’s “BIG SHOW” concert, which was held annually on January, will be held on February 25th, 26th, and 27th next year at the Olympic Athletic Stadium.
Since the “BIG SHOW” is scheduled right alongside Big Bang’s new album, all of Big Bang’s latest music will be featured, including GD&TOP and Seungri’s mini-album. We’ll be releasing a more detailed announcement soon, so please check it out when it’s revealed.
6. What is the schedule for Big Bang’s Japanese tour?
Starting next May, Big Bang will be holding a two-month tour in Japan, which is expected to bring in a 160,000-member audience.
Up ’til now, Big Bang has only done short-term promotions during their week-long stays in Japan. Starting next year, they’ll be promoting more directly and aggressively.
The agreement between YG and our Japanese partner is to completely differentiate the group’s Korean and Japanese activities, and to focus completely on one at a time.
Again, they’ll be in Korea for March and April, in Japan for May and June (due to their Japanese concert), in Korea again from July through September for their new album, and in Japan for October and November.
Big Bang’s popularity in Japan is a lot higher than what is known in Korea, so we are hoping to garner more favorable results with more direct promotions.

So starting in February, Taeyang will be really busy with Big Bang activities.
For those wondering where he is, he’s currently in Japan and has been for most of the week. Some lucky fans caught him.
Here’s the tweets from the lucky fans
TWEETS from chisa18@twitter

@_D_coleo Oh, what a miracle! Since it’s not easy to see him, I got to meet Taeyang he’s not working. We used my friends’ digital camera to take photos with him individually and in groups. It’s the real Taeyang.

So what are your hopes for YB next year? Not only is he going to be busy with Big Bang but he’s also said that he wants to grow more as a person, in addition his contract with YG is up too. I have my own hopes and wishes for him but I’ll leave that in the comments section. 2010 was a big year for Taeyang, I wonder what 2011 will bring.
