Popular singer and DJ Sung Si Kyung has been a fan of Taeyang for some time now and occasionally mentions him on the radio during his various shows. Here are some examples from over the years:
071112 Sung Si Kyung’s Blue Night
SSK: This is a song off Kim Jo Han’s new album – Big Bang’s Taeyang featuring on “I Should Have Loved You Less.”
I’m so hooked on this song lately. I’ve been listening to it everyday.
I went to Big Bang’s dressing room during a music show and asked one of the Big Bang members, “Who’s Big B…” – Oops, I meant to say, “Who’s Taeyang?” And he answered, “I’m Taeyang.” I was so embarrassed! I remember telling him, “Thank you so much – it’s such a great song.”
080620 Hong Jin Kyung’s Music Plaza (w/ Alex)
SSK: When I go to these music shows, I’m a total sunbae (senior) now.
HJK: Of course.
SSK: When did this happen?
SSK: Everyone’s so busy bowing… Wow, Taeyang is really cool.
A: Yeah, he’s cool.
HJK: Taeyang’s cool!
SSK: I apologize, I ought to call it a “running shirt,” (tank/wife beater) but that just doesn’t sound as interesting. I’m going to use a trashier expression – “nahn-ning gu.” Even though he was wearing only a nahn-ning gu…
A: His pose is heroic.
SSK: His shoulders… Guys like him could smell and it would still be okay, I think.
A: You’re right.
SSK: To be honest, if a guy wears just a running shirt he usually looks sleazy.
HJK: (laughing) I gave you time to PR your album. Why are you PR-ing Taeyang instead?
SSK: He’s Justin Timberlake, basically.
A: I agree. Heck, [Taeyang] would look cool even if the collar of his nahn-ning gu was all stretched out.
HJK: Yes. Now, we’ll talk about Taeyang more next time, when we have Taeyang here with us –
SSK: [interrupting] And there needs to be some grease.
A: Yeah, yeah! Wearing overalls!
SSK: Yes, overalls.
A: And with one strap unlatched.
HJK: [laughing] What’s with you guys? Are you guys in his fan club?
SSK: [talking over HJK] And then a lady comes asking for a car wash. Wearing a bikini.
A: And she helps get the bubbles/foam going…
SSK: Oh, I apologize – I spoke my fantasy out loud.
[Not completely sure who’s saying what at the end there. Their voices are rather similar.]
And just because the above conversation seemed to call for it…
110321 Choi Hwa Jung’s Power Time (w/ IU)
CHJ: IU’s ideal man changes randomly.
SSK: I think there are about 14 different men these days.
CHJ: But it seems sweet because you’re young.
SSK: But then what’s the deal with Kim Tae Woo?
CHJ: Why not? You [IU] said you like Tae Woo because he sings well, right?
IU: Because I’m a fan of g.o.d.
SSK: I mean, when she says Taeyang, I can understand it. Because there’s nothing I can do about that.
CHJ: You know Kim Tae Woo’s fans are listening, too.
SSK: It doesn’t matter. I don’t care.
CHJ: [laughing] You’re not scared of them.
SSK: No, Tae Woo is a cute dongsaeng (junior).
But if you say Taeyang, I can accept it – two young and cute people…
CHJ: If it’s Taeyang, you’d admit defeat?
SSK: He’s sexy and cool. Even I think Taeyang’s cool.
CHJ: So if it’s Taeyang, you would admit defeat, but you think you can compete against someone like Kim Tae Woo?
SSK: Compared to Tae Woo, aren’t I a little [better]…?
110616 Sung Si Kyung’s Music City
SSK: Let’s listen to Kim Jo Han’s voice… And [someone whose] phone number I know. One of only a few idols [whose phone numbers I have] – Taeyang. And Taeyang follows me so well, haha. He even brought a copy of my CD and got it signed. [It was/he is] very cute. I’m joking… Well, it’s true that I have his phone number.
“I Should Have Loved You Less.” It was a song that was on Kim Jo Han’s album, and it features Taeyang.
111119 Sung Si Kyung’s Music City (with Alex)
SSK: We just listened to Ne-Yo’s “Because of You.” It’s a very good song.
SSK: This kind of music is great, too. You should try something like this, Alex.
A: I actually want to try something like this. So on the next album –
SSK: [interrupting] And practice dancing, too.
A: What? Dancing? Hm, Dancing…
A: [laughing] But, actually, I can’t say I’ve never considered it… Why do I feel embarrassed even saying that? When I haven’t even done it yet?
SSK: [The style that] Hwanhee is good at.
A: Oh, oh, right. Hwanhee or Brian.
SSK: But, to tell you the truth, the absolute best in this area is Taeyang, I think.
A: Oh, of course. He’s peerless [literally: the one and only, there is no other] in our country.
SSK: Wow, Taeyang… He’s that cool even though he’s short. If he were taller, it would have been ridiculous.
A: We talked about it that time when we watched him perform live. That he’s really good.
SSK: Exactly. Taeyang – he’s cool… and a good guy.
A: Uh huh.
SSK: I hear he doesn’t even drink.
A: Oh, really?
SSK: [He says] he just listens to music…….. He’s a little weird!
SSK: Yeah, he just thinks about music by himself.
A: And dances…
A: Practices… Doesn’t drink any alcohol…
SSK: [He’s] kind of… [trailing off…] … yeah…
A: I wonder… if I live and practice like that, can I make all women look only at me?
SSK: Well, he has a lot of people looking at him.
SSK has also done his share of covers in his own style. Here are some covers from his recent concerts:
I Need A Girl (Uploaded by TastyDonaldDuck)
Sung Si Kyung is so talented and charming himself, it’s pretty neat seeing him admire TY so much. I can’t imagine why Taeyang hasn’t been on his show yet. This should be on the schedule for next promo – it’s about time the two actually get to interact on air!
