Taeyang, “No more suffering.. now it’s time to give gifts” [NEWS]

Shared by on June 5, 2010  

This is Part 9 of Taeyang's Star Diary Series with AsiaE. Other parts are here: Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 | Part 6 | Part 7 | Part 8

If something new is to be born, there needs to be suffering. The result of the suffering Taeyang went through last year is coming soon in the form of a full album.

“We’re almost putting the final touches on. We’re picking out only the best songs and I think it’ll end up being a little over 10 songs.”

Actually, it is because of his preparations for his album that he went through unspeakable suffering this past year. Working on his album and keeping up with other schedules simultaneously, he had a hard time both physically and emotionally. He went through a lot of labor in order to put out a satisfactory album.
“I think my album will be out soon. It’s the first full album under my name, so it feels a lot different from a mini album or a single album.”
He was able to work with his own unique color that he hasn’t been able to showcase before.
“I can’t really say what style of songs they are. You’ll probably know once you hear it, and it may sound really new. Rather than really trendy music, I chose songs that I could really put my own unique color into. At the roots it’s R&B.”
While he was working on his album, he became sensitive to the point where the other members were unable to approach him easily. But those times are over now.
“Since it’s the first official album under my name I got stressed out a lot and was irritable. It made me think about why I do music. I do music because it makes me happy and when I work on music I should be joyful, and I thought that it wasn’t right if that ended up becoming painful for me.”
Chased by busy schedules and gathering up his scattered mind to put his musical energy into his work. He has grown as much as he has suffered.
“Right now my heart is light. Actually I wanted to tell my fans not to give me presents on my birthday this year. I’m just apologetic for not having given them anything… But I think I’ll be able to give them a gift soon. I’m excited.”

    aww... We saw what he had gone through but as for me, it's not just satisfactory putting all he can do Taeyang ssi did a great job on what he did the past few years. About the gifts though, I think it's the only thing us fans can do for him. To see him smiling and happy. And he don't need to give us fans gifts, seeing him perform on stage and having that big smile on his face makes his fans happy as much as he is happy :)
