When asked about his inspiration for “Eyes, Nose, Lips,” Taeyang replied, “It’s a story based on my own life. There have been a lot of rumors that it’s a song about someone else, but it’s really a song that came out when I met Min Hyo Rin.”
G-Dragon jumped in to add that he (unintentionally) played the role of a matchmaker in their relationship. “When Taeyang was planning to film his music video, he was considering who should be his female co-star,” he said, referring to Taeyang’s video “1AM” which features Min Hyo Rin. “I suggested a friend of a friend because I thought they’d look good together, and it turned out that Taeyang already had her in mind.”
“I went to the music video set, and I saw that Taeyang was smiling from ear to ear, even though it’s a sad song,” he recounted, which made Taeyang laugh.
G-Dragon then cracked everyone up by reenacting a scene where Taeyang was supposed to be hugging Min Hyo Rin sadly, but G-Dragon spotted him grinning.
