Newly launched variety show in Korea, Incarnation, which replaces Strong Heart features idols from the K-Pop arena to talk about different topics and issues.
On the most recent show which just aired in Korea, two stars from one of the biggest groups were the special guests. G-Dragon and Daesung from Bigbang took to the stage for a frank discussion about keeping promises. Daesung was the first to bring up the sensitive topic of not keeping promises by saying, “I usually can’t break up with a girl first. The times when I’m the most sorry are from the small things. Like when you watch a movie, say something related to the Tokyo Tower, she’d say things like, ‘Next year, I wish we could go to the Tokyo Tower’. And of course I’d say, ‘Yeah, let’s do that’. I’d feel sorry that I couldn’t keep those promises.” He added, “I make a lot of promises, like, ‘I’ll always be next to you, or ‘I’ll be your last man’.”
When G-Dragon was pressed on the same topic, he calmly responded, “I don’t make promises.” He explained, “You don’t know what will happen in the future. The reason why I haven’t made promises is because rather than making promises I can’t keep, I would rather do my best in the moment.”
One of the show MC’s, Yoon Jong Shin, wanted to know a bit more about the promises that Daesung had kept. At this, Daesung hesitated for a second before saying, “Once I made a promise to be by her side whenever she was sick.” He the turned to look at G-Dragon before bursting out laughing. G-Dragon sat there confused by what was happening, Daesung then had to add, “One day, Big Bang was headed to Japan. But that day, my girlfriend was really sick. At that time, we had Japanese activities starting from the next day. It was okay for me to go to Japan a day after everyone. I pretended that I lost my passport so I could stay with my girlfriend for an extra day.”
G-Dragon looked genuinely surprised as he believed all this time that Daesung had actually lost his passport. Talk about confessing in front of your leader. Awkward.
