The pair were on the 1st anniversary special of Naver Starcast, and they talked about Daesung's Japanese tour. Seungri said, "He's creating a storm that's just like Bae Yong Jun's in Japan. If he just says something, his popularity is incredible." Taeyang added, "He's very busy with his Japanese tour. His name is 'Big Dae' and 'Sound Sung'."
The pair even called up Daesung, who answered and said, "I'm at a hotel for my Sapporo concert tomorrow. I'm not that popular in Japan. It's all because of fans. I'm not certain of this, but I'm going to try to have an album in Korea."
