Whew! Who is this guy and what have they done with the Taeyang we all know? If anyone still had any doubts that this is a completely different guy from the person who came out with “Solar” 3 years ago, this is the confirmation that he is definitely on a new track. (We’ll be posting the translated interview when we’re done and boy, is it a doozy…) This photoshoot makes me proud for him trying new things and even more anxious (almost terrified) to hear his new music. What has he got underneath all the loud and edgy, and seemingly rebellious new wrapping? How is this a reflection of where he is now in his life as a person and as an artist and where he wants to go? And how long will this phase last before he changes again? One thing is for sure… he’s out to do the unexpected.
