Big Bang (sans TOP and Daesung) put in an appearance at the 2013 Gaon Awards. They actually walked the red carpet. GASP! In typical Big Bang fashion, they were not to be constricted to the normal suits and ties found at these events. From the all black attire with his seemingly favorite black leather pants, Taeyang debuted his new “scorpion” hair on the red carpet. With fun, fresh, and funky hair and fashion, as well as some crazy poses, it was nice to see him so comfortable. Taeyang was obviously being Taeyang, just having fun and enjoying himself.

Big Bang snagged themselves the February and March song awards, for Blue and Fantastic Baby respectively, along with the First Quarter Award for the Alive album. Like always, trust Taeyang to be the spokesperson for the group and give the acceptance speeches.
February song award for Blue
Taeyang’s Speech: “Thank you for this prize. Though TOP and Daesung aren’t here bc of their solo promotions, I’m sure they’ll be thankful too. We BIGBANG will keep working hard this year. We’ll give good music and good stages to you. Please give us much love. Thank you.”
March song award for Fantastic Baby
Taeyang’s Speech: “Thank you for giving us this amazing prize, the Artist Prize. We’ll work harder to be a true singer. We’d like to share this prize w/ Mr. YG or helping us to be singers, Teddy, and many staffs. Oh and VIP! Thank you! I LOVE YOU!”
First Quarter Album award for Alive
Taeyang’s Speech:“Yes, I think I’m speaking very often here. Thank you for giving us these lots of prizes. We keep coming up and down the stairs like this. But this kind of tiredness makes us feel very good. It’s okay to feel more tired like this so please give us more prizes. Oh and this year, we’re planning to promote our solos and also BIGBANG. Please give us much love. Whether you give us a prize or not this year, we’ll just keep working hard on our music and perform on stages. Thank you everyone.”
