Hey everyone! As you might know, my name is Kay and I usually lurk around here doing odd things, sometimes posting, sometimes trying to figure out wordpress, other times hoping to catch someone to chat with. I love meeting new people, especially Tae Yang fans and that’s why I created this site. I wanted this to be a place where international fans could meet and appreciate the type of music Tae Yang creates. Thank you to everyone who has visited this blog~
I Heart: writing my own music, getting lost in a book, endlessly discussing a topic, SUMMER, korean/japanese/taiwanese/thai dramas (~yes, I’m a dramaholic) my piano and ofcourse, the people who post here =)
Peeves: immaturity, my addiction to chocolate (~i need to quit!), dispassionate professors & people who don’t say “thank you” when you open the door for them
Believer in… destiny, faith, living life to the fullest, having no regrets & most of all, being grateful….

Always Tae Yang is the full dose of my fangirl-ish tendencies.  Although I do all sorts of random stuff, my main responsibilities with the blog are scavenging for tidbits of information and blogging, maintaining the gallery, and Twitter-ing.  ATY has become a sort of addiction because it’s fun, and I love the team and you readers who visit.
Addictions: music that makes me move; R&B; reading blogs; sneakers; streetwear; my piano; people who have opinions and share it;
Annoyances: bad writing; mindless music; irrationally-fanatical-fangirlism;
Quirks: doesn’t usually like female vocals; writes an essay with every comment; lives here; fangirl-in-denial; likes being elusive;
Believes that there’s no such thing as bad music, only music you don’t feel.

A long time ATY lurker, now turned writer. A YB stan since 2008, I am a relative halmoni by Kpop standards. (Have no idea how and why I became a fan, it sort of snuck up on me.) Grew up on Motown and have developed a taste for old school music of various genres. Loves dancing, dancers and dance in general. Dog lover.  “Glass is always half full.”  “Things can and should always be improved.” Ghost of the ATY chatbox.
Likes: Open minded discussion – I always learn new things from people!
Dislikes:  People who jump to conclusions; have no respect for the opinions of others; who ask questions but don’t want to hear the answers.
Quirks/Addictions:  Don’t know how to fangirl. 80% of (my) life’s problems can be solved with cake and tea.  YB fancam addiction.
Quotes from a fellow stan: On YB videos: Download first, ask questions later.
Favorite YB quote (of many): “Everyone, I would love for you to listen to all the good music in this world and be happy until I return, and for you to find peace and love in your hearts.”

About me: I’m a 1990 baby, currently in college majoring in Business. I fell in love with kpop in 2009, YB in 2010 and haven’t looked back since. Like most college students I”m poor, but hopefully I’ll get a good job after college.
Likes: music, movies, cooking, family, hanging out, kpop, 2NE1, BIG BANG and Taeyang.
Dislikes: cocky people, studying, closed minded people, discrimination, sexism and racism
Pet Peeves: being mean for the sake of being mean.

  2. I looove you guys!

    “6) My world doesn’t revolve around Dong YoungBae even though I make it look like it does. ”
    LIES!!! LOL.

  3. I heart you guys (and ATY) ^^

    So Patra, you DID write one after all. Hmm… I know you’re not Asian; you already told us you hated YB at first; and no.5 simply CANNOT be true!!! GD, moderation is a virtue – you have “moderato” tatooed on your arm for crying out loud. But then maybe that’s what makes GD so amply qualified as the leader and great celebrity material because he constantly provides us with something to talk/discuss/gossip/complain about lol.

  4. Thanks for the new Staff section! Having been lurking around AT and Georgie’s Blog for only a short while, I’ve gained so much juicy bits and pieces of Taeyang, all becos of you wonderful gals, and guy : ) Thank you, all!

    For quite a long while, I kept seeing your nick as “Tofumom” instead of “Tofumon” ^^ I need to get my eyes checked!

    My friends often thought it strange that I don’t listen much to female vocals. For me, I find most of them are too saccharinely sweet for my ears (think SNSD) or just simply, forgettable. I’m glad to see now I’m not the only strange one : )

  5. @patra: why did you hate on yb before? im just curious.
    @patra: i agree that your #5 random facts is all LIES! hahaha! “geojitmal…”

    @staff of ATY: THANK YOU SO MUCH! I hope i can help you one day. peace! 😀

  6. Thank you guys, so much for making this fansite, although i’ve only been a fan of YB for a couple weeks, I feel as if i learn more about him on here, and not too mention the chat-box is kool, thanks so much ❤

  7. ooooh my icon is freaking adorable! with the lil’ heart and everything!

    @Tofu : I swear I’m not lying. *naughty grin* my world really doesn’t revolve around him. XD

    @georgie: lol #5 cannot be true…you’re so right!

    @neenah : that’s a long story. I explained it in my soompi post…I don’t know if you have a soompi account but if AT decides to make a section about “how did you become a YB fan?” then I’ll be more than happy to share the long version.
    In short, my friend introduced me to YB by calling him the Korean Omarion and I don’t like Omarion so that made me dislike YB right away then I watched a couple of videos and I just…hated him.But it only lasted a week lol. I fell deeply in love with him.^^

  10. @Z33_RowD33 – Hi there, as far as I know, all the fan art has been submissions from the creators, as well as banners – if you could let me know which artwork you have done then I’ll gladly add the credit…

  11. Hi Kay, usually I don’t allow permission for my work to be put on other sites (except forums) but I’ll allow it just this once (only because this is a site to do with Taeyang..haha!)

    This was originally created by me:

    Cropped out from my own fan art:


  12. ^ oh yes, I remember you, you probably don’t remember me though, I was the one who requested that banner back when I used to be active on other forums – I also went by “sweetsorrow” but anyway, I can remove it, no problem, its under my creations but its not mine, I’ll feel uncomfortable keeping it, but if you want to submit your own fanart for us, let me know

  22. Breaking news!!

    some of Taeyang’s fans started producing a rumor that Justin Bieber copied some parts of the wedding dress song of Taeyang so that I immediately found it out. I guess that some parts are indeed similar.

    Please go check that out and let us know whether or not it’s really true. To help you figure it out, I leave the link.

  23. Wow, there’s alot of Taeyang fans. I’m not surprised, I mean, Taeyang is so dang gorgeous. No one can help but fall for him. I don’t think I know one person who doesn’t like Taeyang… but what can you say, he’s an awesome idol.
