[Star Column – BIGBANG] Behind Story of the World Tour – Taeyang

# Hello, this is Taeyang of BIGBANG ^^

This is the first time to meet you guys by Star Column. At Big Bang Star Column, we will tell you about not the awesome stage stories that we experienced in 2012, but the behind episodes of the stage that you guys want to know more. But I worried about how to start, I will write as I write in the diary. Please look forward guys~

We had many chances to visit a lot of places of the world in 2012 by world tour, and I remember Peru!! Actually, I think I could not have chance to go there if there was not world tour. Because the country ‘Peru’ is the one that I visit without any advance info, it have been really interesting since before going there.

It was not easy to go to Peru. We waited for 10 hours because of deteriorating weather conditions and arrived after 10 hours of flight. The first impression of Peru was WOW! There were so many fans waiting for us at the airport than the other countries. But after we arrived at hotel, we were surprised again.


[Arrived at the airport of Peru. Good to see you, guys~]

After we arrived at the hotel, we were resting and heard shouting and singing. So I thought there was a huge amusement park near the hotel. But it was the fans who were waiting for us singing and shouting. Fans’ performance was continued until the late night. As the members and staffs said that “It was new experience” at the concert hall next day, Peru’s first impression was intense.


[This is how the fans look in front of the hotel in Peru. So many gathered, right? ^^]

Wait a moment! You guys are wondering about what we will do at the hotel usually when we have overseas schedule, right? Mostly members have rest time at their room for the concert. Mostly members have rest time at their room for the concert. This time, mostly we watch some show programs that we missed in Korea or movies (we are watching not latest movies but classic movies^^). And we sleep, or get together in one room and eat some refreshments and chat. This time the themes are really small such as which program is funny, and about the movie that we watched, but I always think that these chatting time between us is really precious.


[During rehearsal in Peru. The little girl is really cute, right?]

I asked the staffs for the help because I thought, “Let’s go outside instead of being in hotel in Peru!!”. It was the mission to go out as secretly as possible because I worried about fans’ security who are in front of hotel just in case. I succeed to go out which reminded me of 007 Mission!!
(I feel sorry to the fans who were waiting at the front of the hotel, but it was because of security problem so just in case hope you guys don’t be upset~^^)

I who succeeded to go out thought to go to Inca traditional market because I was usually interested in the Incan Civilization. But unfortunately I was busy to look around so I couldn’t take pictures. ㅠㅠ

The moment I got into the Inca traditional market, I was exciting to see unseen local products and busy to look around and shop. The moment that I saw the craft work of high quality that I had wanted usually, I couldn’t think of d aftermath(?), enjoyed shopping a lot. (I was frustrated when I knew that baggage should be unwrapped and checked one by one at the airport..ㅜㅜ Unwrapped the wrapped things and re-wrapped)


[Performing in Peru. I look singing hard, right? ^^]

I thought that Peru has the one new culture that is combined with many cultures. Handmade craftworks were really beautiful that were enough to be shown to anyone. If I can get a chance, I will show you the ones that I bought~^^

After the exciting shopping me and staffs had SEVICHE which is ripened sashimi that I had first time and also famous in Peru, and came back to hotel by 007 Mission.

I who had gratifying shopping and delicious food, for the fans who were waiting for me, I ended the first day at Peru with ‘Surprise greeting’ to fans at hotel balcony that every foreign celebrity who had stayed greeted.

[Performing in Peru with all of the members! I’ll remember the cheers on that night forever.] 

Me, Taeyang who got energy from looking around nice Inca traditional market and fans’ cheering, I could have awesome concert at Peru.

Ini pertama kalinya saya menyapa kalian melalui “Star Column”. Dalam “Big Bang Column”, kami akan bercerita kepada kalian bukan tentang panggung-panggung menakjubkan yang kami rasakan di tahun 2012, melainkan tentang cerita di balik panggung-panggung yang kalian lebih ingin tahu. Namun, saya sedikit bingung bagaimana memulainya. Saya akan menulisnya layaknya saya menulis diary. Silahkan berharap banyak~

Kami mendapatkan banyak kesempatan untuk mengunjungi banyak tempat di dunia di tahun 2012 melalui tur dunia kami, dan saya mengingat Peru!! Sebenarnya, saya rasa saya tidak akan pernah mendapat kesempatan untuk ke sana jikalau bukan dengan adanya tur dunia ini. Karena Peru adalah negara yang saya kunjungi tanpa mengetahui banyak tentangnya sebelumnya, sebelum pergi ke sana pun sudah terasa menarik.

Tidak mudah untuk mengunjungi Peru. Kami menunggu sepuluh jam karena  kondisi cuaca yang buruk dan akhirnya tiba setelah sepuluh jam berada di dalam pesawat. Kesan pertama yang saya dapat dari Peru adalah WOW! Begitu banyak fans menunggu kedatangan kami di bandara melebihi jumlah di negara-negara lainnya. Tapi, saat kami tiba di hotel, kami tercengang lagi.

Setelah kami tiba di hotel, kami sedang beristirahat dan terdengar suara teriakan dan nyanyian, jadi saya pikir ada taman hiburan di dekat hotel. Ternyata itu adalah para fans yang menunggui kami sambil menyanyi dan berteriak. “Pertunjukkan” dari fans pun berlanjut hingga larut malam. Seperti halnya para anggota lainnya dan staf yang mengatakan, “Ini merupakan pengalaman yang baru,” di lokasi konser keesokan harinya, kesan pertama dari Peru pun kuat/hebat.

Tunggu sebentar! Kalian penasaran apa yang kami lakukan di hotel saat kita berada di luar negeri, kan? Biasanya semua beristirahat untuk konser di kamarnya masing-masing. Kali ini kami seringkali menonton acara-acara televisi yang kami lewatkan di Korea Selatan ataupun menonton film (Kami tidak menonton film terbaru tapi film klasik/lama^^). Dan, kami tidur ataupun berkumpul bersama dalam satu ruangan dan makan dan berbincang-bincang. Kali ini tema (pembicarannya) pun tidak luas, seperti acara televisi apa yang lucu dan tentang film yang sudah kami tonton, tapi saya selalu berpikir bahwa saat berbincang-bincang kami seperti ini sangatlah berharga.

Terpikir untuk pergi keluar daripada di hotel semasa di Peru, saya pun meminta bantuan dari para staf. Bantuan itu adalah misi untuk keluar serahasia mungkin karena saya cemas tentang keselamatan para fans yang menunggu di depan hotel. Akhirnya saat itu saya berhasil keluar, mengingatkan saya kana misi 007!!
(Saya merasa bersalah kepada para fans yang menunggu di depan hotel, tapi ini semua juga karena masalah keselamatan kalian, jadi saya harap kalian tidak akan marah~^^)

Saya yang berhasil keluar pun terpikir untuk pergi ke pasar tradisional Inca karena saya memang tertarik dengan peradaban Inca. Namun sayangnya, saya terlalu sibuk berkeliling sehingga saya tidak dapat mengambil foto. ㅠㅠ

Di saat saya akhirnya tiba di pasar tradisional Inca, saya bersemangat untuk melihat produk-produk lokal yang belum pernah terlihat dan sibuk berkeliling serta berbelanja. Saat aku melihat kerajinan tangan berkualitas tinggi yang sudah lama saya inginkan, saya tidak bisa memikirkan akibat(?)nya dan berbelanja begitu banyak. (Saya kecewa saat saya tahu bagasi/koper saya harus dibongkar dan barang-barang tersebut diperiksa satu per satu di bandara.. ㅜㅜ Saya membongkat dan membungkus kembali barang-barang itu)

Saya pikir Peru mempunyai budaya yang digabungkan dari banyak budaya. Barang-barang kerajinan tangannya sangatlah bagus hingga cukup untuk diperlihatkan ke orang-orang. Di kesempatan lain, saya akan menunjukkan barang-barang yang sudah saya beli~ ^^

Setelah berbelanja dengan seru, saya dan para staf menyantap Seviche, sashimi matang, yang saya makan pertama kali dan memang terkenal di Peru, saya kembali ke hotel dengan misi 007.

Saya yang sudah puas berbelanja dan makan enak, untuk para fans yang sudah menungguku, saya mengakhiri hari pertama saya di Peru dengan “sapaan kejutan” kepada para fans melalui balkon hotel yang ditinggali setiap artis luar.

Mendapatkan enerji dengan berkeliling di pasar tradisional Inca dan sorakan para fans, saya, Taeyang, pun mampu tampil menakjubkan di Peru.
