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.
