BIGBANG‘s T.O.P didn’t hold back on telling the world what kind of relationship he has with the BIGBANG members as well as what keeps him handsome as he is at the press conference for “FROM TOP EXHIBITION” held on June 4 at Horam Art Center in Seoul.
“I kept listening to Taeyang‘s new album on the way here. When I sent words of encouragement to Taeyang through text, he told me, ‘No need to say that, why are you like this?,’” explaining how he is like with the other members of BIGBANG.
“Because we have always seen each other since we were younger, our relationship is not that of a business relationship but more like a family. I think they think of me as their real older brother and I consider them as my younger brothers too. We always cheer each other on,” he added.
“Whenever there are bad things that happen to each one of us, we hurt together and I think that we have to enjoy growing old together,” T.O.P further added.
Aside from the very close relationship he has with his BIGBANG brothers, the rapper also mentioned the secret to his good looks.
“I cannot really personally take care of my looks well. (Instead of botox), I get something that’s called ‘sul-tox,’” T.O.P jokingly said about his beauty secret. (T/N: “Sul” in Korean is ‘alcohol’)
“Eating well and sleeping well is the secret,” the rapper said.
“My job is to stand a lot in front of a camera and yet I don’t enjoy taking a selca,” T.O.P opened up.
“I take landscape photos all the time but personally, I’m not much of a selca taker. I do not like SNS. I’d rather work hard at what I do than be on SNS,” he added.
Aside from dishing on his reasons for not being on the social networking sites, T.O.P also shed light on how he got started with this exhibit.
“Youth is courage. You have to do this year the things you cannot do next year. Even this exhibit can become a good memory or something that I would be embarrassed about when I become older. But because I’m still young, I took this on thinking that this is a performance that I can do,” he said.
The “FROM TOP EXHIBITION” is held to commemorate T.O.P’s first video album, “1st PICTORIAL RECORDS FROM TOP.” The exhibit features various printed photos from T.O.P’s video album as well as never-before-seen photos that he personally chose.
