On stage Taeyang is captivating, with vocals and a stage presence that exudes confidence and charisma. One of South Korea’s most popular R&B K-pop idols, he’s made his name (and career) as a member of BIGBANG. But that’s only the beginning for the 29-year-old, whose also seen success with his solo releases, though he remains true to his origins.
“All things, to me, go back to being a member of BIGBANG,” the artist tells Billboard.
Decked out in black sweats and Balenciaga high tops, he exuded simplicity in comparison to the flair of his bedazzled and befeathered, primarily white, stage outfits. “I would describe myself as a very plain but very honest person,” he says. “I don’t really hype myself up with fancy things. I do a lot less than other celebrities because I like being honest. I just want the audience to see that the performances are a real representation of myself.”
Nine years after his first solo activities in 2008, we are back at Inkigayo for the debut performance of Darling and Wake Me Up.
Taeyang was the special guest on the hit “reality” show I Live Alone which featured a day in his life at home and at work. Here are some highlights from the show:

It was inevitable with a show called “Fantastic Duo” that Bigbang’s immortal dance jam would be called into service as a theme of sorts. Taeyang repped his boys admirably, turning the studio into a mini concert with some of his fans. (I’ll forever be amused at the fanboys….)
