On July 25, Taeyang and Daesung’s agency, YG Entertainment, revealed, “For this filming, about 3,000 people were invited to the NHK hall in Tokyo. About 10 teams appeared on the show but when Taeyang and Daesung appeared, the audience cheered the loudest. The cheer was so loud that during the talk with the MC, they had to stop the interview.”
