If you’re like us, then Taeyang’s (태양) “Eyes, Nose, Lips” (눈,코,입) is your ultimate love song. But did you know that the song is about his girlfriend of 3 years, Min Hyorin (민효린)?
The BIGBANG (빅뱅) member recently told the cast of MBC’s “Radio Star” that he wrote the lyrics while thinking of his bae. “I heard a rumour that it’s about a random woman that I don’t even know. The truth is that the song is about Min Hyorin,” he said.
The 2014 single, taken from his 2nd studio album “Rise”, topped all Korean music charts and it was also ranked #1 on the Billboard K-Pop Hot 100 Chart. “Eyes, Nose, Lips” was composed by Teddy, Dee.P, PK, and Rebecca Johnson, with lyrics by Taeyang and Teddy.
In a recent interview with Dazed and Confused, the idol said, “Honestly, I think people change after meeting they love. I didn’t have many romantic relationships, and the romantic side of me was beginning to disappear. I felt ‘dry’. However, after I fell in love with (Min Hyorin), I rediscovered the romantic side of me. It feels as if rain is softly touching my dry heart. Thanks to love, I feel a lot more relaxed now. For that alone, I am thankful for love.” Aww <3
28-year-old Taeyang and 30-year-old Min Hyorin first met on the set of the singer’s “1AM” (새벽한시) music video back in September 2013. YG Entertainment confirmed the couple’s relationship in June 2015, adding that the actress is the singer’s first girlfriend.
They are officially the cutest K-Pop couple ever! In our books, at least ;)
