On the May 21st episode of KBS’ Happy Together 3, the BIGBANG members came together to share tales from their time together as a group.
The story of a rocky past among the members came up. Taeyang started, “I saw Seungri for the first time on an audition program. During one of the episodes, a judge pointed out, ‘Why did you sleep when everyone else was practicing?'”.
To this Seungri answered, “Everyone slept, but it was edited as if I were the only one who did. When G-Dragon and I saw that scene we said to each other, ‘What are we going to do if a guy like THAT joins?’ and a week after he actually did.”
Seungri continued, “G-Dragon really hated that BIGBANG was going to be five members. He had been preparing as a hip-hop duo similar to Deuce with Taeyang. He hated the fact that he had to debut as a five-member idol group.
“The practice room door was open one day and I heard, ‘Why do I have to do it with them? I’ve been practicing with Taeyang for six years. What is this?’ I was nervous. After that, our eyes met, but he would ignore me and leave. We didn’t talk for three months. He acted like I was invisible.”
However, the two were soon able to heal their relationship with a television drama.
He said, “After three months, there was an opportunity for us to get closer. G-Dragon and I really got into the drama ‘Goong.’ The first time he talked to me was because of the drama – he asked me when the drama was going to air. I watched all the episodes from the drama and I was relieved to see that Yoon Eun Hye met with Joo Ji Hoon again.”
