Big Bang’s G-Dragon Praises BFF Taeyang’s Stubborn Personality
Big Bang’s G-Dragon shared his BFF Taeyang’s actual personality.
Big Bang’s G-Dragon attended the roundtable interview for YG’s hip-hop project unit GD X Taeyang on November 25 in a café in Mapo-gu, and praised Taeyang’s stubborn and naively honest personality.
G-Dragon and Taeyang met as YG trainees at age 13 and have since been working together for 14 years. Apart from activities as Big Bang, they have been participating in each other’s solo albums, musically growing together.
G-Dragon participated in writing and composing Taeyang’s first mini album and featured in the first full length album title song I Need a Girl. He recently worked on the songs Stay With Me and Ringa Linga from Taeyang’s full length album Rise. Taeyang also participated in G-Dragon’s first solo album Korean Dream, sharing musical inspirations.
About his good colleague and friend Taeyang, G-Dragon said, “Brothers fight sometimes but we don’t fight. I think he’s better than a brother,” and laughed.
When asked to name some of Taeyang’s weaknesses and strengths, G-Dragon said, “He is really stubborn. He was stubborn on everything about himself until now, which is what I think made Taeyang stand where he is today.”
“Sometimes he is too stubborn, which frustrates some people. But Taeyang continues to push for it with his convictions. When Taeyang pushes for something, it usually leads to good results. Anyways, Taeyang is someone that I can trust the most even when he doesn’t say anything. Some people act however they want and talk a lot but Taeyang is someone who still gives off big presence without talking or taking actions. I guess you could say that he is simple and honest. I hope that Taeyang is the friend that is next to me when I die in the future. That’s the kind of friend he is to me.” (G-Dragon)
About G-Dragon, Taeyang shared, “I think he is a really good person. His heart itself is really good-natured. I watch him from close by, and Jiyong is someone who makes me wonder if a person should be that good. He has no evil in his mind and is good-natured. Actually, there are too many things to praise him about. But if I do, I think it would seem like I’m praising him too much.”
Meanwhile, Good Boy is a song co-composed by G-Dragon, The Fliptones and Freedo with G-Dragon arranging and writing the lyrics. It features catchy trap beats with G-Dragon’s sentimental rap and melody on top of Taeyang’s groovy vocals. The music video with its fancy camera works and sentimental visual, has already recorded 6,003,935 views as of November 25 at 1 p.m. (KST).
GD X Taeyang will perform Good Boy for the first time during Mnet Asian Music Awards (2014 MAMA) on December 3.
