Back in May, Paik Nam June's 'Stag' video art piece sold for 660 million KRW ($576,000) at auction which set a new record price for Paik's video art. At the time, the name of the buyer was unknown but it appears it was Big Bang's Taeyang who made the bold purchase at the auction.

Around a month after the auction, the same object is seen on Taeyang's Instagram with the caption "Arrived." It would be fair to make the conclusion that the idol was the person who won the bid. This art was created back in 1996 with four TV monitors in the shape of a deer. Its main signature points are the three different languages (Korean, English, and Chinese) on its tail and the monitors which feature a female model in a swimsuit to portray the idea of 'sex'.
Paik Nam June was a famous Korean American artist who created many beautiful artworks, he is considered to be the founder of video art.
