Taeyang kills it at his SBS Inkigayo Comeback (140608)


After nearly 4 years, Taeyang’s much awaited comeback. He performed “Eyes, Nose, Lips” and “Stay with Me” with best bud GDragon.

He did so good and looked amazing. Does anything else need to be said? (Well, apart from thanks to SBS for a beautiful stage set and props to tipsy cameraman for making a quick recovery in time for the final song.)

Thanks so much to the uploader!

  1. Legit crying over this comeback. It wasn’t perfect, but it was perfect? (Y’all know what I mean.) YB was beautiful and looked like himself. GD was great support to him, the perfect hype man in what really looks like a duet. His voice was tired in places but warm and evocative when it counted. And that stage for his final solo was gorgeous. All in all I couldn’t be more satisfied.

    So happy I’m moved to tears.

  2. DON’T JUDGE ME. BUT I’M ABOUT TO CAPSLOCK MY WAY THROUGH MY FEELS. LOL

    PERFECTION! I CAN’T CONTAIN MY FEELS FOR THIS COMEBACK PERFORMANCE.

    FIRST-SWM. I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE WERE MAD ABOUT IT, I WAS TOO. BUT THE PERFORMANCE WAS REALLY GOOD. CAMERAMAN SUCKED BUT IT STILL DIDN’T DETRACT FROM GDYB’S OBVIOUS CHEMISTRY AND THEIR BROMANCE. YB LOOKING HELLA FINE IN HIS OUTFIT. UNNNNNFFFFF. AND HE WAS SO PLAYFUL WITH THE CAMERA. LOVED IT!

    BUT ENL. OH ENL!!!! SLAYED FROM THE OPENING CORDS. THE STAGE WAS EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED, HIM JUST STANDING THERE AND SERENADING US. CAMERAMAN REDEEMED HIMSELF. STAGE SET UP WAS BEAUTIFUL. THE USE OF THE LIGHTING AND BACKGROUND AND THE OUTFIT. SUITED YB AND ENL TO A T. BUT YB! DEFINITELY THE HIGHLIGHT OF INKI TODAY. ENL WAS NOTHING SHORT OF PERFECTION. EVEN THOUGH HE MUST HAVE BEEN TIRED FROM TRAVELING AND PERFORMING, HE NAILED IT! THE VOCALS! THE EMOTION! THE FACIAL EXPRESSIONS! THE SPIN! THE DROP TO HIS KNEES! SLAYED ME DEAD A MILLION TIMES.

    ALKDSGHDLKGHDGLKDFHDG. DONG YOUNGBAE. WHY DID YOU HAVE TO BE SO PERFECT!!!!

    1. I’ve had all sorts of emotions throughout YB’s performances all those years. But this is the only one where I burst into tears. It’s been such a LONG wait and we have still so many places to go with him, but right now, I’m so happy.

    2. IA with you on the camera work i hate it but thank goodess GDYB is a professional team because they made it really good. Bromance was spot on xD

      anyone realize TY stopped twirling around in the corner in performances lately (even with big bang). I think he finally stepped out of it lol. What exactly he stepped out of I have no idea but i’m happy with the interactions he has made with camera/fans nowadays. ;D

  3. Where did my comment disappear to? LOL.

    ENL was amazing. He sounded great, sang all his lines, did just the right amount of adlibs. He was so into in that I felt the heartache T_T This is definitely one of the best performances he’s ever done and probably my most favorite vocal performance by Taeyang. I am so proud, thank you so much Taeyang for giving us a great comeback stage.

    P/s: wasn’t able to catch the livestream because link wasn’t working so thank you to whoever uploaded the link 🙂

    1. He’s never going to be the best technical singer but he manages to touch my heart and just make that connection. And that soul he has in his voice is why I’m a fan.

      1. oh i finally see the first comment i made before lol.

        I agree with everything you said. It was and still is the reason why I’m still a fan. That voice and the raw emotion you get from it when he sings. No one else in kpop makes me feel that way. ❤ ❤

  4. I like this comeback performance. For SWM, I like the outfit YB is wearing, his chemistry with GD is superb, both of them are having fun on the stage. The only thing I hope for is that the cameraman to pay more attention to YB since is his comeback after all. But anyway the the last stage makes up for it.

    ENL..I dunno but for me this was the most beautiful performance I have ever seen on SBS Ingikayo. The backdrop and the lighting goes really well with the song. YB delivers such an emotional and powerful vocal performance and his vocal has improved so much. Overall is simple but is so impactful.

  5. I have to say that re-watching after (not so properly) seeing the live stream gave me a whole different experience.

    *Warning: Lots of gushing and maybe all caps ahead*

    OH GAWD WHERE TO STAAAARRRRT!? SO MANY FEELS AND SO MUCH TO SAY.

    YB sounded amazing, he looked amazing. Albeit tired here and there but man he rocked it!!!

    SWM: THE GDYB BROMANCE. I. JUST. CAN’T. AHHHH!!! And he was so playful with the camera. As you all said, was more a duet more than anything, but the song itself already was like that… but gosh the two of them just have such great chemistry on stage. The cameraman though, just wut?

    ENL: Ohhhhh, man I’m falling more and more in love with this song. This performance just is the cherry with ice cream and chocolate chips on top (of a cake, mind you). AND THE STAGE. JUST THE WHOLE LIGHTING, CAMERA (good on ya cameraman), YB BEING AMAZING. THE WHOLE PACKAGE. BUT MAN, THE STAGE. JUST HOW FITTING WAS THAT FRICKIN’ AMAZING STAGE!?!?! And gosh, he has to then spin and kneel to the ground for that added effect, such signature moves during lives – I THINK I JUST MELTED (or) DIED AND CAME BACK FROM HEAVEN RIGHT THERE. HE’S BAAAAAAAACCCCCCCCCCCK!!!!!

    aslkfjasidf!!! SUCH AN AMAZING FIRST COMEBACK ON INKIGAYO, THE SUN HAS RISEN!!!! Ahhhh!!

    (And just how many times did I write amazing there?)

      1. Thanks! I read somewhere though that watching on the SBS channel contributes towards his INki points so whether its true or not, no harm in leaving it up 🙂

  6. Performances were perfect especially Eyes, Nose, Lips. He sounded perfect. I never imagined I would see him give a performance like that. And I even LIKED his performance with GD (though I’ve come to love love love the song.) YB really surprises me very time he comes out with stuff…in a good way of course.

    Cannot wait for Sketchbook. CANNOT.

    1. SWM is a nice duet and I can see why he wanted it on the album. Whether it should have been in the first live performance is debatable, but I do think both songs were a good contrast to perform together and Stay with Me is a perfect buildup to ENL.

      I can’t wait for him to perform ALL the songs.

      1. My only gripe with SWM is that it features way too much of GD, but the song is great – it has a younger vibe and there is a sweetness and freshness in comparison to the heaviness of the rest of the album. The performance itself also features too much GD and it felt quite inorganic and calculated (even though YG said GDYB did not rehearse before; bunch of lies). It would be a great song to just jam with the audience. However YB sound soooooo good, all was forgiven.

  7. the only thing that disappointed me was that there was no interview, but i guess YB just didn’t want to answer the same questions about relationships over and over again as he said back in that one episode of real sound.

    everything else was great though. his singing was top-notch.

    1. actually, for some reason, now i’m just beginning to think that he just got there too late to be interviewed lol.

  8. Not much to say that hasn’t already been said except that the live performance of ENL is even more than anything I could imagine. I may not be able to understand Korean, but I could feel everything that YB put into that performance and song.

    As for SWM, that song is slowly growing on me. I must admit I was a little upset when I first heard it since I was expecting GD to just be featuring instead of it being more of a duet between the 2 of them. But now that I’m over that I’m started to like the song 🙂

  9. UGH… I had shivers and goosebumps while watching his solo, along with a big fat stupid smile. He looks amaazing and sounds exactly as he should. really spot on.

    1. Diiiilllllyyyyy! Been missing you in all our fangirling (and as you can see, we have so much reason to do so.) I suggest you backtrack on ATY’s twitter timeline for all the little updates that don’t make it to the main blog. And omg, he’s baaaaaaack (and dare I say it, better than ever.)
