Taeyang responds to the ALS “Ice Bucket Challenge”

After being challenged by various personalities including singer R&B singer Crush and his brother Dong Hyun Bae to be next in line for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge,  Taeyang sent out a response through Instagram

youngbeezzy: #ALS #icebucketchallenge 를 통해 많은 분들이 저를 지목하셨는데요 🙂 이번 기회를 통해 세상에 잘 알려지지않은 병들과 싸우고 있는 분들에게 많은 분들이 관심을 가지게 된것 같습니다. 지목을 받아서가 아니라 너무나도 아름다운일임에 저 또한 자발적으로 참여하고 싶은데요. 얼음물을 끼얹져 그들의 아픔을 잠시라도 느끼는것 또한 너무 값진 일이지만 저는 뒤에서 제 마음을 담아 ‘승일 희망 재단’ 을 통해 기부하기로 했습니다. 작은 마음들이 모여 세상은 조금씩 더 아름답게 변하고 있네요. 더 많은 관심과 사랑 부탁드립니다.

He also regrammed a translation by @BIGBANGGisVIP as reposted on instagram by various people. He actually tweeted several times trying to make sure he thanked the right person properly. (Such a sweetheart!)


youngbeezzy: Hopefully this must be right credit.. Thanks for the translating @BIGBANGGisVIP (dana) everyone called u dana unnie.. Anyways.. It’s so hard to thank to right person.. 😭

And just to end his burst of SNS activity with his usual humor:


youngbeezzy: My name is 0🍐 (youngbae) 😂

[T/N: “Zero” is “Young” in Korean and a pear is “Bae”]

  1. So touched by this on so many levels. I thought his response to the challenge was perfect given his circumstances and was so eloquently said. I loved that he showed appreciation for the translation and made the extra effort to thank Dana (who totally deserves it!) though I imagine it must have been confusing with all the people out there who don’t credit grrr. And just to make sure it doesn’t get too mushy, he ended with a joke haha. Seriously though, he’s such a smart, sweet and funny guy. So proud to be his fan.

  2. Damn it, YB shouldn’t be giving me so much feels this time of the day. Totally felt so proud to be his fan when I saw this on my Instagram feed. Sweetest man alive, seriously.
