The filming took place inside YG Entertainment‘s company building and the two honestly opened up about how hard it was for both of them during that time.
G-Dragon addressed the police reports that stated that the news was reported too late, the time taken to reflect on their actions was too brief, and that as a major company, YG Entertainment was trying to cover up their artists’ mistakes. Daesung also cautiously opened up about the time he spent alone after his accident, unable to even face his parents after what had happened. He honestly admitted that thoughts of suicide even crept into his mind.
Their fellow members T.O.P, Taeyang, and Seungri also served as guests on the episode, and the boys who featured on television for the first time as a 5-member group in nearly a year remarked, “When we were trainees, we didn’t have enough money to even buy Korean beef BBQ, so we had to eat pig’s skin. We recently went to the pig skin restaurant we used to frequent before our debut, just to reminisce.”
“As we approached our fifth year of being in the industry, we were slowly beginning to lose our focus and forget our original goals,” they continued, confessing that like all other idol groups, they fell prey to the ’5 year jinx’. “As 2011 passed us by, we did a lot of self-reflecting and realized a lot of different things. Us members became a lot closer as well,” they said.
The members admitted that the hard times helped them realize what was important to them. They concluded, “If it weren’t for the things that happened last year, Big Bang might not still be together today.”
A bit ironic that the mishaps that threatened Big Bang could be the very reasons that they’re still together.
