Taeyang on Ray Magazine June 2012: Excerpt from Big Bang Interview

Q: It’s summer; what do you want to see girls wearing?
SOL: T-shirt and denim – I like simple coordination.

Q: What’s your ideal summer date?
SOL: I don’t have any experience of a summer date…but I like Okinawa, so I’d go there and swim lots and do marine sports.

Q: Who’d make the idea boyfriend out of the 5 of you?
SOL: No one (laughs)

Q: What’s the most important thing for achieving your dreams?
SOL: Keep thinking in your head ‘I want to achieve this’ – every day. If you do that then naturally the ability and power will come to you, and you’ll end up achieving your dream.

Q: What Bigbang song do you want to listen to when you’re in love?
SOL: Bad Boy. If you take in the lyrics you’re like ‘watch out for that Bad Boy!!’

Q: What Korean drama or movie do you recommend?
SOL: To be honest, I don’t really know Korean stuff…I like anime and manga, like ‘One Piece’. I don’t even need to recommend it, it’s popular everywhere.

Q: How do you sleep?
SOL: When I was little I wore PJs but now I just wear pants. When it’s cold I wear a hoodie or something.

Q: If you won $4million in the lottery how would you spend it?
SOL: Buy a mansion (‘mansion’ in Japanese means a swanky flat). But to be honest, if I suddenly got dumped with $4million I’d give it to my parents to look after. I don’t like money.

Q: What are you into at the moment?
SOL: Things I’m into….there isn’t really anything (laughs). But even if there was something I don’t have the time.

Q: What kind of person is G-Dragon?
SOL: Up until now GD has produced Bigbang’s music, so out of the members he’s the most professional. He’s also very sensitive and romantic.

  1. I thought the most interesting thing about the article were the photos Taeyang took of GD. I liked that they both decided to have fun with it – GD with the poses and Taeyang with his “art.” You can see both of their humor in it (and probably glimpses of the stuff they used to do as kids.)
