After making his comeback as a solo artist with his second single since over a year ago, Taeyang (real name: Dong Young Bae) received a response from the public that is as hot as his stage name. The music video of Wedding Dress, which was released on the 12th, illustrates a story from Taeyang's perspective of having to send the woman he loves to another man that is presumably his best friend (talk about your typical shakespearean drama). In particular, the kiss scene between the Big Bang member and the mysterious lady that occurs near the end has aroused much jealousy interest from netizens. An explosive reaction ensued only moments following the online release of the music video, wherein netizens expressed their jealousy for the main female lead:
"Who's the rival that hurt Taeyang oppa's feelings?" "The wedding dress suits her so well." "Please don't marry him."The envied character from the Wedding Dress MV is actually a CF model and a new talent named Baek Seung Hee. With a height of 174 cm and a slender figure, she is the 2003 Korean representative of a world-wide "Best Model" conference and shot CFs for Starbucks, Samsung Yepp, Head & Shoulders and Tasty Milk. Baek Seung Hee said:
"I don't know if Taeyang was nervous as I was, but my lips were quivering while filming my first kiss scene. It was an exhausting yet very enjoyable experience. I had fun filming."She continued:
"The kiss scene was part of the acting so please don't hate me too much and please look upon me favorably."Despite the anxiety Baek Seung Hee may have momentarily experienced to execute the kiss scene, the sacrifice she paid is seemingly trivial for the price of locking lips with a babe like Taeyang. Besides, isn't it every girl's dream to be the center of an angst love triangle? It was rather rude - not to mention, a bit creeper status - of the cock blocker Taeyang's friend to pop in and out from behind the couch and under the car, even intruding in when Taeyang was about to propose, but c'mon Taeyang. It's 2009. Stand up and fight for the one you love! Oh, you're already standing? My bad...
