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.

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.
