16 years in the industry yet BIGBANG Taeyang maintains a successful career and clean personal life.
With 16 years of experience under his sleeve, BIGBANG Taeyang is probably one of the most seasoned and respected artists in the Kpop industry. In addition to his overwhelming talents, Taeyang is also well-known for his dedication to music and super perfect and scandal-free personal life.
BIGBANG Taeyang, whose real name is Youngbae, took a liking to music since he was a child. At only 12 years old, Taeyang became a trainee at YG Entertainment, and polished his skills for years after years.
During this time, Taeyang became close friends with G-Dragon, and became a duo with overwhelming talents in their company.
In 2006, Taeyang debuted as a member of the legendary boy group BIGBANG, and his life took a drastic turn. Throughout his time in the group, the male idol reached the peak of his career, while at the same time achieved super successful solo projects. His first solo song “Hot” quickly drew attention from the public, followed by numerous hits under Taeyang’s name, including “Where U At”, “Wedding Dress”, and many more.
Compared to the rest of BIGBANG,Taeyang is dearly loved for his talents and dedication to his craft, and keeps a super clean record throughout his career. While the 4 remaining members including G-Dragon, T.O.P, Daesung, and Seungri all faced their fair share of scandals, Taeyang is considered an anomaly in the group, and never gets into any controversies in both his professional and personal life.
With such a great reputation, Taeyang’s relationship with Min Hyo Rin only has received support from the public and fans. While this romance is not completely smooth-sailing, Taeyang and Min Hyo Rin still manage to reach a happy ending, having tied the knot on February 3rd, 2018. The couple mostly keep their personal life private, but their happiness throughout the years is as clear as day.
In December 2021, the male idol officially became a father, as Min Hyo Rin gave birth to their first child. The happy family is now residing in a luxurious apartment in Hannam-dong, Seoul, Korea.
As of May 18th, 2022, Taeyang has entered the age of 34. Early in his 30s, yet the male idol has got it all: from popularity, wealth, to a perfectly happy family. And this wouldn’t happen without his artful spirit and strong dedication to music.
