(10 Fan Service Moments)

Posted May 18, 2018 by

We all have our own story on how we got into K-Pop or to the VIP fandom. A lot of VIPs probably got lured thanks to the extraordinary music and performances BIGBANG consistently puts out, but one of the reasons we’ve stayed during all these years (even for the not-so-great moments) is because we’ve witnessed multiple times how genuinely nice and kind-hearted ALL the members are.

Today, we celebrate the birthday of someone who truly embodies SWEET and NICE. The unarguably KING-GENERAL-GOD-EMPEROR OF FAN SERVICE. The member who was initially known for his “forever alone” persona, but became the first member to have found his forever (heh). The person who made congratz dope. The SUN of the VIP Universe. What’s his name?

TAEYANG!

In celebration of his birthday, here’s a very incomplete compilation of his exceptional, world-class, high-quality, one-of-a-kind fan service he’s known for.

1. When he feeds fans who wait for him at airports. From gummy bears, pepperos, bananas, mandarins, honey butter chips to special kimbap from Jeju.

2. When he (and BIGBANG) rent food carts for fans who wait at broadcast stations when they go on music shows.


3. His sincere I Love Yous and Thank Yous to fans.


4. His witty (and heart-warming) Instagram/Twitter replies.




5. When he re-posts silly, hilarious photo edits made by fans (because VIP humor = Taeyang humor. He just GETS us…).

7. When he makes sure the VIP tickets to his concerts are super worth it with the SWEETEST sendoffs.


8. HIS HUGS!!!



9. When he invites fans on stage to be part of his performances.

At his Solar Tour concerts while performing “I Need A Girl”:

10. Lastly and maybe this doesn’t really count as fan service, but when he announced his wedding with a heartfelt message on Instagram, it really showed his respect and love for his fans. As singers, all that is really expected from them are awesome songs and amazing performances, so sharing this bit about his personal life was really sweet.

Hello everyone, this is Taeyang. Today, I want to share with you guys about the most important and joyful promise I have made in my life. I have pledged to spend the rest of my life with Min Hyorin, the one who has always stuck by me for the past four years. Through all the good times and the bad times, she has always believed in me and now I look forward to making a beautiful life together. To all the fans who always treated me as if I was family, to all of my Big Bang members, to all of my YG family, to everyone Iโ€™ve ever had the pleasure to work with and meet, I want to say THANK YOU. I will continue to live my life with responsibility and humility. My hope is that you will continue to support us and give your blessings for our future ahead as a couple.
