[동아닷컴=전효진 기자] How could we have seen BIGBANG’s faces without any makeup if TAEYANG didn’t appear on MBC’s I Live Alone?
The second part of TAEYANG’s I Live Alone episode aired on August 25. He had dinner with DAESUNG, SEUNGRI, and head choreographer Lee Jae Wook, and they played baduk games, the loser of which had to receive a jiu jitsu penalty. It was a chance to friendship and bond between members of a 11-year old group.
The key topic of TAEYANG’s second episode was “Korean Food Table”, “coughing” and “pajamas”.
TAEYANG invited DAESUNG and SEUNGRI to his house. After practicing for his concert, TAEYANG met with DAESUNG and brought him to his house. TAEYANG said to him, “Let’s change into pajamas first. Something sexy.” Then, TAEYANG changed into his fourth pajamas of the day. They both changed into pajamas, and TAEYANG cooked steamed pork and kimchi for DAESUNG.
According to TAEYANG and DAESUNG, BIGBANG members play baduk games when they are on tours. TAEYANG said, “G-DRAGON’s specialty is omok, and DAESUNG’s an alkkagi genius. G-DRAGON practices omok on his phone. He comes back better on every tour.”
TAEYANG and DAESUNG watched Korean Food Table together while waiting for SEUNGRI. TAEYANG is a big fan of the show, so much so that he watches two episodes a day. He said, “I envy Choi Bul-am the most”. Jun Hyun-moo, the emcee of I Live Alone, commented, “MBC should make a show called ‘TAEYANG’s Food Table’”.
SEUNGRI arrived at TAEYANG’s house while they were watching TV. Earlier on, TAEYANG and DAESUNG expected SEUNGRI to turn up wearing his jiu jitsu clothes and a medal. As expected, SEUNGRI was in jiu jitsu clothes and he brought his medal with him, making everyone laugh. TAEYANG commented, “I knew SEUNGRI would do that. He wants to show us that he is always working hard on something.”
SEUNGRI was high maintenance. Although he is 28, TAEYANG had to hand him the towel and turn on the water for him for his shower. But, he is good at doing business and he was carefree although he was a celebrity, and TAEYANG and DAESUNG showed their envy for him. They responded to everything that he did and said, which lifted SEUNGRI’s spirit.
While they were waiting for SEUNGRI, TAEYANG and DAESUNG talked about their health. They said things like “Nowadays, my body aches after concerts”, “This makes me sad, but I can’t run on the stage anymore because my thighs hurt”, and “I can’t exercise as much as I used to. I strained myself too much when I was younger.” They seemed down for a while, but SEUNGRI appeared in cherry printed pajamas and made them laugh. SEUNGRI leads a DJ label, and he turned on some music. He made jokes and entertained TAEYANG and SEUNGRI while they were cooking.
They were joined by Lee Jae Wook, the head choreographer for BIGBANG. TAEYANG explained, “He is the sixth member of BIGBANG. He knows everything about us.” The four of them spent time together playing omok and alkkagi. TAEYANG lost to SEUNGRI, and SEUNGRI did a jiu jitsu move on him as penalty. TAEYANG commented, “When I’m with BIGBANG members, I feel like I’m 16 or 17 years old again.” The cast members saw the footage and said, “They are like junior high school kids”.
TAEYANG rounded off his episode nicely by giving presents to the cast members in the studio.
