Taeyang talks about his friendship with G-Dragon [NEWS]

Shared by on July 7, 2010  

Taeyang of Big Bang, who recently started his solo activities, has expressed freely on his feelings towards G-Dragon. Through his interview with Newsen on the 7th, he thanked G-Dragon for featuring on his solo album.

“I’m grateful that Jiyong (G-Dragon’s real name) participated in this album. There is a lot to say about ‘I Need A Girl’, but it’s one of those songs that only G-Dragon can be featured in. Jiyong is my best friend and we talk about private matters a lot. ‘I Need A Girl’ is a song which is about a guy talking about love to his friend, so G-Dragon would naturally be the best option to collaborate with. He knows me more than anyone else and I felt that he was the best featuring rapper. So I asked him, and he did the best rap possible.”

The friendship between G-Dragon and Taeyang is well-known amongst fans. G-Dragon especially has praised Taeyang a lot, garnering attention.

In regards to this, Taeyang responded: “I’m really happy that Jiyong looks at me in that light. He’s a friend who I’ve been with for almost 10 years, and we gain a lot from each other. If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t be this person today. He made me want to try harder in what I do. We have qualities which the other doesn’t have. This can be irritating at times, though it helps most of the time. I think we were a match made in heaven.”

Upon being asked about his feelings on G-Dragon as a singer, he replied: “Even if I eliminate my personal feelings towards him on this judgement, he is still a good musician. There aren’t many people who can rap like him, and his musical abilities are amazing. However, he becomes an issue no matter what he does, so there is a lot of gossip about him. I feel sorry for him as a friend as he is sometimes treated in a deregatory fashion.”

Taeyang has recently released ‘I Need A Girl’ and started promotions. It has gained attention due to G-Dragon’s featuring.

    Awww <3 GDYB Much loveeeeeee xx

  • Highway35wr

    I don't think they are talking about GD's fashion sense. I think they mean he get a lot of negative comments i.e. controversy over the things he does. I gotta agree because it seems people are always hating on him recently.

  • Iris

    ia that last line should be cut off -o-
    other than that i love this interview~ <3

  • Crustyspingkels

    people in the west wont understand AVANT GARDE . . . stupid people . . . anyways im a guy and i do GD's fashion alot!!!!! he is kinda my idol to and and when he opens his mouth and RAP like HELL!!!!!! its a 2 thumbs up for GD!!!! but for me!!!!!! teayang is the complete pacage, like good dancer, nice manly voice, very hot guy and kinda funny . . . he is the ultimate bigbang member for me . . . but i like them both equaly . . .

  • Crustyspingkels

    for me GD is good with rapping and taeyang is good with dancing and singing . . . people always compare them because some dont know their background that they are actually best friends (very humiliating of them). but i just love them both and should do more music and MUSIC VIDEOS together!!!!!!!

    and me to! i just got my solar DELUX pacage from korea this morning! and im loving it!!!!!!!!!

    I agree. The article is so heartwarming but the last sentence made Taeyang a weakling and that G-Dragon made his MV popular. :(
