Q1. Hwadap: Donation Flea Market and Auction by Taeyang and Friends is currently in the midst of preparation. This is your first event after your discharge from the military.

A1. When I was in the army I kept thinking about how I should meet my fans for the first time after being discharged. We mostly meet our fans on the stage, but there may not be such an opportunity immediately.  I had many thoughts and concerns and actually came to a realisation in the army.  I think I have too many clothes which are really not necessary.  In the military, you only wear one uniform and battle outfit.  This is already sufficient, and I still felt ‘isn’t that too much?’ Is there a good way to deal with the things I own?  So I thought it would be good to set up a flea market in my name, share good things, and donate the proceeds to a good cause.  At first, I was troubled by how I should meet my fans and this event seemed to match well with the various ideas I had, hence I proceeded to do it.

It is not living in pajamas in a big, neat house with a garden like in “I Live Alone” but living in the midst of music with the recklessness of the word “Passion.”

GQ : I’ve read all of TAEYANG’s [past] interviews with GQ. I noticed that you spoke about your future plans in most them. You said you would fall in love, would do a world tour, and would release a song with just vocals. You accomplished all of them.
T : Right? haha. I was a bit surprised when you mentioned that. I said those things at that time…

White Night Korean Promo Blitz: A Recap

As Taeyang mentioned, it was a short but intense promo cycle for White Night in Seoul since he had to immediately leave for his White Night North American Tour .  But what a bounty of activities! Did YB even sleep for 3 weeks? His hard work is all for our benefit though since we got a lot of goodies to tide us over for the (extended) future.

[Interview: GQ Korea July 2014] Taeyang: “To Me”

“To Me”
Editor Jang Woo Cheol

Taeyang has released his new album <Rise>. The title song ‘Eyes, Nose, Lips’ has not only maintained the top spot on domestic music charts for a long time. It is also doing well on international iTunes charts. In Japan, he will soon be conducting a multi-city concert tour. As a solo artist, he is experiencing what can be described as success, more so than ever. And yet, Taeyang said, “I don’t have much to say. If possible, I didn’t even want to do interviews this time.”
