Taeyang tweeted about him getting tatted up during his few days free in New York after Big Bang’s concert in Newark, NJ.
Alert fans took the opportunity to head down to Inkline Studio on Manhattan’s lower East Side to meet him. Paparazzi (247paps on youtube ) were also on hand to record the event:
So much to fangirl over in this video: His English! His being so patient in signing autographs! He eats cannoli! Not to mention how endlessly nice, cute, adorable and sweet and squishy he is. (My inner fanmom cannot be contained — spaaaazzz.)
Another video anecdote of how nice he is: Taeyang dougieing with a fan right after the concert (which actually made it to the Korean media.)
From the video description and comments (from JoviCity on youtube):
“Big Bang’s Taeyang teaches me how to Dougie after the Big Bang Alive Concert in Newark NJ on November 9, 2012. Cooking. I am just super happy he caught the food out of the air!”
“I am just a fan. Honestly, I just walked pass security (I think they thought I was a staff member or a security guard of some sort). I went to the back where their escalades were. Saw Taeyang leave with his security guard (who had a weapon on him JUST IN CASE someone decided to act up! haha) and that’s when I said “Taeyang, all I WANNA DO IS DOUGIE WITH YOU!” He was down, and that’s how it happened. My night was made! Sometimes ya just gotta try.”
“Actually I just went to back the stadium where they were leaving, ran into them, and asked the homie to dougie with me haha. He’s honestly the best!”
So happy New York is showing him a lot of love – and it seems the feeling is mutual. Looks like he’ll have to go back soon… he has to get his tattoo finished!
