One of my favorite photos ever of Taeyang.
More below the cut:
This was part of an exhibit called “Letters from Angels” in 2009 by Photographer Cho Seihun (@3photo on twitter) together with the Social Welfare Society, Inc. of a series of portraits of celebrities with orphan children to promote domestic adoption in Korea. More than 100 celebrities have participated in the annual campaign which was launched in 2003.
Taeyang was quoted at the time as saying “As it was first time for me to see these babies, it made my heart flutter with joy. I wish the babies will grow up in a happy family with full of love.”
ATY had posted on this photo back then and it got a lot of media coverage, but new fans might have never seen it (and old fans may want to relive the sheer adorableness of it all.) This photograph is the essential Taeyang – warm smile (and eyesmile), simple clothes and styling, seemingly genuine joy – and a baby! Teydaddy indeed.
