On October 6th, the first episode of the new variety talk show
‘Strong Heart’ aired with the great MCs and the extraordinary group of
guests. Past shocking stories were shared and the biggest highlight of
the show was the great escape plan formed by the hit idol
group, Big Bang.
“When idols reach the second and third year stage since their debut, they get the sense to rebel.” – GDragon.
When GDragon was chosen next as Kang HoDong’s secret weapon on the new variety talk show ‘Strong Heart,’ all the fans knew that they were in for a surprise. GDragon
started out in his talk by talking about the “slump” the members had
been going through then, and the hard times that came to them along
with the working and popularity. During the time of the
Hite commercial (the one that SeungRi wasn’t allowed into), the four members from Big Bang gathered and had a secret meeting to run away and have fun all by themselves. They had even planned everything out with DaeSung driving and taking the car while GDragon, TaeYang, and TOP would take care of the guards and everything else. The plan was all set and with the end of the CF filming, GDragon contacted SeungRi as well. However, on that day they were set to leave, YG calls GDragon
and starts to talk about the misunderstanding and calls him for a
meeting and in the end, they were able to get a two month break, which
made the plans unneccessary. But here is the catch.
“So we [TaeYang, GD, DaeSung, TOP] concluded if SeungRi had been the one to tell YG…” – GDragon.
GDragon stated that right after he had sent the text message to SeungRi about their decision to leave, the call from YG came almost immediately. Also, soon after the news, SeungRi’s solo album had come out as well. So, in order to solve the mystery, GDragon asks SeungRi at the spot if he had told YG.
“To tell the truth … between me and YG, there had been a suspicious dealing.” – SeungRi.
SeungRi admitted his deal with YG and talked about the rule in the YG Family
where, if you get three outs, you are automatically out. At that time
he had two strikes on his record and when he had been with YG alone, YG told him that if he “texts” him some information about what the Big Bang hyungs are up to, then he would remove the strikes in SeungRi’s record. Then soon after, SeungRi receives the message from GDragon about the escape plan, so he uses this as the method to get the strikes erased from his record.
The text message:
- SR : “I think the movement of the hyungs are suspicious”
- YG : “Explain to me in detail”
- SR : “The hyungs are getting ready to escape”
told on the hyungs, it was like home run for me. I started filming
musicals, movies, dramas, and solos.”
