The last time Taeyang was on a year-end special as a solo was back in 2009 for the SBS Gayo Daejun. Thank you! (This is different from the ones that were actually broadcast. Definitely worth watching! And re-watching… haha.)

We never had a chance to translate this interview back when it was first released in 2010 since it was so long (though we did post Daum’s summary article based on it along with the superb photographs.) There’s a lot of interesting little details for fans in the original interview though. Daum had gathered questions from fans and picked 30 of them for this informal interview which covers everything from the personal to the professional. I loved the way it gives a glimpse of the more casual and human side of Taeyang. Enjoy!
YOZM: If there is a chance to meet your fans for a day, what do you want to do? (Actually they would already have a long list^^) It’s not easy to meet them outside of stages.
Taeyang: I really want to go camping with them for few days. Like rent a bus and go all together.
The funniest behavior in your life…
I do silly things a lot. I like hiding somewhere and then showing up all of a sudden. (*Actually he was hiding behind the sofa when we arrived at the interview venue.) If there’s a closet in the waiting room, I hide in there all the time. I like those things a lot. I found more and more people understand and enjoy my humor nowadays. So surprising….

On the 2nd Anniversary of the Solar Concert, I thought it would be interesting to look back at Taeyang’s emotional and memorable speech from the first concert day. (The original post was here.)

“Mm, it seems like today passed by somewhat hectically. I think I was really hectic today as I was preparing for this concert. Whenever I prepare a song or an album or a concert like this, I learn a lot. This album also taught me a lot. And getting ready for this concert and meeting all of my fans like this face to face, really taught me a lot.

While we are all anticipating Big Bang to put in an appearance at the 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards in Belfast, let’s enjoy a little bit of those adorable Bangs comics from back in the day. (Scanlations as tagged from topnyong.wordpress.com. Thanks sjay and smile!)
It takes a bit of time to load… but the adorable Bebe and Boss are worth it, I think.

Taeyang has definitely got some moves. Though looking back, his freestyle has certainly evolved quite a bit. See him back in 2007 at the YG Family 10th Anniversary concert in LA – at 0:49 and starting again at 1:38.
