» GD's first impression of (and colors he uses to represent) his BIGBANG members
Taeyang: I was really scared when I first met Taeyang. We have very different personalities. I used to be really introverted when I was young but he's more introverted now. When we first met, we were like strangers but from the moment we started being YG trainees together to going through so much hard times and until now...we know what the other is thinking just by looking at each other. Taeyang, and I say this about all the members...they are like family to me. I will say that Taeyang's color is red because he's 'the sun'. A fire that keeps burning. He looks cool on the outside but is really passionate on the inside.
Daesung: I realized how important one's personality is after I met Daesung. His color is yellow because he's like a lightbulb that can shine light on everything. He is especially gentle and he can make everything so much brighter when he's around.
Seungri: My first impression of Seungri.........awful (laughs). Seungri became part of BIGBANG through the company audition, but I knew about him through the Internet that he had already been through a lot of auditions too. That's why my impression of him wasn't that great. I even wanted to discipline him at first...Seungri is the type of person that is really greedy....and has a lot of passion for everything. It's good if he uses it in the right place, but I'm very regretful to say that he doesn't. He should find a certain thing and put all his effort into it, but he can only concentrate for a limited time and then he will shift his entire focus onto something else. He always gives up in the end....when I talk about that, I really feel that he's a maknae. If I have to categorize Seungri as a color then he would be ivory; not white & not yellow. He's still in the process where he doesn't know what he wants yet. Seungri will change the most when he grows up. But no matter what I said, Seungri is a very warm and cute kid (laughs).
T.O.P: I knew T.O.P in high school. He was a well known rival of mine back in the day but 3-4yrs after, I saw him by chance again and T.O.P greeted me first. That's how we started talking. Hm..everyone must think that T.O.P is an especially good looking and perfect guy right? Actually he has a lot of weaknesses (laughs). I think that's his charm though. As a color, he will be peach. It doesn't matter if he's there or not and even if you hear his voice...as long as you've seen & heard him once, you will never be able to forget him. I think that's something that only T.O.P can do!
GD: My color? Transparent and colorless. If a dye is dropped onto a piece of cloth, won't that cloth have color? I want to become a person like that. I'm working really hard to become that. Simply put, I'm transforming from a kid to an adult.
