Taeyang, "T.O.P is actually childlike, even a little klutzy" [NEWS]

Shared by on February 28, 2012  

On the recent filming of SBS's Running Man, Big Bang's Taeyang disclosed that T.O.P's cold, charismatic persona is actually just a made-up image.

During the shoot, T.O.P showed his relaxed and even clumsy sides, making the co-stars and producers laugh. A few years ago, T.O.P starred in "Iris," the hit action drama starring Lee Byunghun, as a ruthless and brutal killer. This, along with his charismatic performance on the stage, has defined the image of T.O.P so far.

Taeyang (edited!) said, "You remember T.O.P as a cold-hearted killer from Iris, but he is actually so gentle and childlike, even a little klutzy."

He continued, "Real T.O.P and the killer in 'Iris' are completely different. He has a warm and mild personality."

During the shoot, T.O.P was indeed smiling all the time and being a nice man, to the surprise of all.

  • Shea T

    DITTO. :)

  • hananmz

    Yeah.. alrite.. then let's watch family outing when Daesung and Top were alone.. hahaha.. ur such a D-Lite!!

  • Mochi

    Haha aww :) I really like TOP, those who put on a strong-and-silent facade, but are as silly as any other guy. Kinda like Bom, who seems to have a diva appearance, but she's just as strange as him.

  • sailat

    Didn't Dae mention on FO that TOP is called bingu TOP cuz he does silly/stupid things?

  • jane

    top is a good man:)

  • Luvtabi

    Ahhhh...I miss Daesung comments to Tabi.

    Yes, TODAE is back XD

  • Kayli88

    It's Taeyang who said this, not Daesung. Correction please! :) 


    I'm officially fall in love with TOP today..lolololl..
    we VIPS know that top is bigbang's "little kid".. lol:)

  • http://twitter.com/iamamusic_freak Sydney Stokke

    This is why i love TOP. he tries to act cool but he's too fun to keep it up 24/7 :)

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/WINFN7SXC6YPVEXH7YXJSRMIDI iie

    awwww TOP <3

  • http://twitter.com/Alyssa_Vargo Alyssa Vargo

    I love the ToDae also! XD But I couldn't believe the "T.O.P was indeed smiling all the time and being a nice man, TO THE SURPRISE OF ALL." LOL! Didn't we all know TOP was a derp with a goofy/curious/cute/childlike/funny/playful/silly/clumsy side?
    He's always been a big man-child to me! XD He just happened to be bless with a amazingly HOT face that counteracts that beautifully child-like smile of his!

  • Nina

    Great, someone always has to drag another person (who has nothing to do with it) to the story.

  • robstentop

    daesung's right, those are the reasons we love top so much!

  • http://twitter.com/mangosadiksha sadiksha grg

    can't wait to watch the episode...♥ 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_6BV26FXJMW6Q7I4HHVPEYKPUO4 Lynn

    Tabi's fans all know he's just a 7-year-old trapped in a grown man's body lol

  • http://tamaraaa.tumblr.com/ Tamara Tran

    LOL, this isn't really news to VIPs though, considering the fact we all know him as "ChoomTOP" or "BinguTOP" xP


    OMG!this made me love him more,lol

    hahahaha TABI OPPA you LOOK so cute!!

  • JIA

    IMO,his real innerchild self has never been a secret.before,during,after IRIS or INTO THE GUNFIRE. TOP has always show his childlike attitude.during interviews,on the stage,in variety shows, I always see his BINGUTOP self.

    Real T.O.P!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • bigbangupdates

    Thank you! Edited. Sorry about that :-)

  • rollingpin

    heehee. that picture is priceless. it's like the face we see on bigbangtv that most non-fans don't get to see. and now he's doing it on national tv to a wider audience. lol

  • Tabisan4eva

    Aigoo..I love how they describe Tabi as a person..hehehehe..I am so proud of him..Tough in the outside but kind hearted person in the outside..WOW!..Tabi, your the man!..ToDae is really the BEST!!..Everyone can tell how close they are with..I like how the know each others true personality..BIGBANG and TABI FIGHTING!!..:)

  • http://twitter.com/caramel_frapz Maya Francis

    I know it. TOP charismatic persona is not Choi Seunghyun.


    I agree..100%..

  • fywang9

    LOL a klutz? This I would like to see. God knows I trip over thin air all the time, so if I ever accidentally hurt myself actually meeting BB, they would all laugh and be like: "This fan is such an idiot."

    Anyway, enough talking about myself now.. 


    i keep smiling~ dunno why.. hihihihi

  • blackvip

    clumsy TOP??! hell yeah my bingu Tabi show his true colour. FINALLY! GOSH!

  • Jayden_reid

  • Joy_24bruna

    yeah T.O.P.  is a childlike but he always teases park bom on 2ne1 tv, ill really like them together .how i wish they had a show together or a duet together in a stage,love to see them,such a lovely couple.

  • Rokjava

    TOP kinda look like Yoo Jae Suk...huahahaha...our hyung is actually very weak he just act tough...;) loved how daesung always opened his secret...first the bingu now klutz who knows wats next!

  • Varda

    Why do people always seem to find it funny that people aren't exactly like the characters that they act as? Our Tabi is clearly a 5 year old adorable dorkface, we've always known this XD!
    I love those pics, they've made waking up at this ridiculous hour far more bearable!

  • Kenley

    Why are they surprised that Tabi is nice and smiling the whole time???? He is the biggest dork of them all! He's childlike, dorky, cutie, shy, and real nice. I totally believe what Dae and Baebae said. Ahh Bingu TOP.

  • valxuan

    All I can say is, never judge a book by it's cover! <3 

    TABIIIIIII waeeeeee u soo cuteee?!!!!!

    the girl at the back looks like park bom. haha 

  • FFSD

    TOP is having an identity crisis. since his iris role he transitioned towards into the fire and gd&top, bingu top disappeared!

    i remembered how upset VIPs were when i read how they missed the dorky goofy tabi, and how he has totally changed into this hot sexy stuff but that's not the tabi we knew.

    even in his recent interviews he said he likes to be alone, along with things like he's trying to figure out who he is, being embarrassed about things he did in the past, exploring more sides of himself blah blah blah. i felt sad.

    But even tabi himself cannot keep up this persona he's trying to pull off with this image. it is things like running man that makes him unconsciously reveal who is REALLY IS INSIDE.

    tabi, please bring back bingu top!

    It's Tae who said this things, not Daesung.

  • yoko33

    You've read wrong. It's Tae who said it, so it's TOBAE.

  • guest

  • bigbangfosho
