Taeyang in GQ Korea (July 2014 ) – Scans


I’ve always loved Taeyang’s black and white portraits.  Not just because he’s a naturally handsome guy that seems to get handsomer as he grows older, but that the B&W photos he has done tend to bring out the more thoughtful and vulnerable side of  him in a way his other fashion shoots don’t.

HQ Scans below the cut.

While the inital impact of these GQ shots were of how good looking he has become, I also see how much he has grown up from a boy into a man. And unlike before, the maturity isn’t just in a wiser and more thoughtful way but also in a more assertive (and sexual) masculinity than what was in the past.

I can’t wait for the interview to be translated.

Many thanks to urthesun for the scans. Click on any thumbnail to start the slideshow.

  1. Thank you, thank you for these scans they are lovely! I really enjoy his styling here 🙂 GC always delivers X) Can’t wait for the subbed interview!

  2. JWC always giving us the best. Below is the rough translation of the part that I liked. Sorry it’s not much, busy weekend!! Boo~!

    TY: My original idea was place ‘Love you to death’ right after “Intro”, but it wasn’t easy to place that song as a second track since it almost didn’t make it to the album. Eventually ‘Intro’ and ‘Love you to Death’, these two songs which are close to the direction that I initially envisioned was placed in the first and last in the album.
    I really love the lyric of ‘Love you to Death’, it’s so passionate. Love a girl to death… And I like how this song has Sounds of Masculinity.
    JWC Is Taeyang a passionate person?
    TY: Yes. Especially when i am falling for someone. Getting to know that side of myself, I feel like I need to control myself before falling too hard.
