Taeyang also talked about his childhood pal G-Dragon, who has been spending time with him in YG Entertainment since elementary school.
Taeyang said, “As a friend, I feel sorry for things that happened to Jiyong. But Jiyong will always be someone more than a family to me. Even if something worse than this (problem) happened, I couldn’t let go of Jiyong’s hands just like that. Same thing goes for Jiyong too. For me, Jiyong is a friend for a lifetime.”
Taeyang also spoke for the first time about the misunderstanding that happened in the internet because of the tweet he posted regarding to G-Dragon’s scandal.
Taeyang posted tweets saying “Even if I looked like I don’t know, I know everything” and “If I looked like I’m being deceived, it’s because I only close my eyes”
Taeyang said, “Actually those tweets have nothing to do with Jiyong. I wrote down my thoughts regarding what’s happening in the world,” and continued, “I feel terrible for all misunderstandings”
He also expressed about his trust to the rest of the band mates: T.O.P, Daesung and Seungri.

He continued, “During our rest period, all of the members meet up to work on our songs. We already prepared some new songs for BIGBANG and currently, we’re in the middle of producing a new album.”
