Taeyang’s Star Diary Part 4 “G-Dragon and I Have Only Fought Once”
Taeyang(23, real name Dong
YongBae) and G-Dragon(23, real name Kwon JiYong) have been close friends ever
since they met 10 years ago as trainees. Asiae was curious after learning about
their history as friends and wondered, is there any rivalry between them? Have
they ever fought with each other?
“We fought once.” Taeyang admitted. “It was while playing basketball…”
Taeyang and G-Dragon played basketball against dancer trainees, who they kept losing to. With his natural competitive nature, Taeyang thought “I’m going to win this” but G-Dragon’s thoughts were “This [game] isn’t even fair” and wanted to quit.
“We kept on losing and Jiyong said ‘Let’s just stop’ but I told him ‘Let’s play until we win’. We eventually started to argue about whether we should play or not and then we started fighting.(laughs)”
The two of them are almost polar opposites in their personality and tastes. For example, while G-Dragon has changed his hairstyle over 200 times since their debut, TaeYang has only changed it twice.
“Jiyong has no fears when it comes to trying new things. I’m the type of person who has to think things through carefully. I think that’s part of the reason why we get along so well. I hold him back and Jiyong shows me things that I wouldn’t usually try.”
Even when it comes to picking out their food from a menu, Taeyang wants to eat “whatever is good” but G-Dragon has a more detailed menu inside his mind where he thinks “for this occasion you eat this and for that occasion, you eat that”.
“I’m indecisive, so I can’t pick things so easily. But Jiyong isn’t like that. Even so, we still respect each other [in our decisions]. When I see Jiyong, there’s things that I naturally accept about him and vice versa. I really think that I have no other [close] friends besides Jiyong nowadays.”
Ever since their trainee days these two have become close friends and have been there to comfort and cheer each other on through the rough times. Because of their friendship, they are never lonely while working in the entertainment business. “While we’re working, there’s definitely times when we clash. But like it or not, I think Jiyong and I have done well so far.”
