[마이데일리=김나라 기자] TAEYANG of group BIGBANG shared his thoughts on performing at ‘Coachella Festival’.
On January 17, men’s fashion magazine Esquire revealed the pictorial of TAEYANG, who is the main model for their February edition cover. The pictorial grabbed the people’s attention since it was TAEYANG’s first official act after being discharged from the army.
It is said that TAEYANG displayed a high level of concentration, as if he never had his vacancy due to his military duties.
TAEYANG started the interview by stating, “I’ve been well in the army”. He shared his stories in the meantime by adding, “I’ve looked back into myself through the time I had in the army and earned big energy through that at the same time”.
The public is paying attention to TAEYANG as soon as he was discharged from the army, since BIGBANG was listed on the lineup of ‘2020 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival”.
He revealed, “The members put in a lot of thought after hearing the offer made by Coachella”. He added, “All I want is to present and leave good performances at Coachella”.
In addition to their upcoming performance at Coachella festival on April 10, TAEYANG is also preparing a place of meeting with the fans. It will be through the charity event ‘Hwadap: Donation Flea Market & Auction by TAEYANG and Friends”, organized by himself.
TAEYANG explained, “I thought about how I should first meet my fans after I get discharged”. He continued, “You only wear your daily and combat uniform in the army. That’s enough, so I thought maybe I have too many. I thought about good ways to take care of them and decided to open a flea market in my name to share the good things and donate the earnings to meaningful places”.
On the flea market that will be held in PIER59 Studio, Sungsu-dong on the 18th, TAEYANG will present 1,300 of his personal possessions in addition to 2,200 lifestyle items including fashion items and furniture. All proceeds will be donated for children and teenagers with hearing impairment.
TAEYANG stated, “Listening itself has a lot of meaning to me. Of course, seeing is important, but I think that a single word or beautiful sounds change people the most. That’s why I hope it can be a special gift for the hard of hearing”.
