On the August 28 episode, a mysterious man identified as Taeyang's friend sent a video message. In the clip, the friend was first asked, "Taeyang claims that he has never been drunk. What is he like after drinking?" The friend jokingly answered, "Not good. I've seen him (drunk) a lot. That's his drinking habit (saying that he's not drunk)."
The next question asked, "Taeyang claims he's a funny person off-stage. What are your thoughts?'' The friend brought laughter as he answered, "That's also his drinking habit. It's because he's drunk."
Another question followed, "What kind of person are you to Taeyang?" The friend replied, "Taeyang doesn't have a lot of friends. I think I'm his only friend."
By now, Taeyang and most of the panelists figured out the mysterious friend is G-Dragon.
G-Dragon was asked to shares words to Taeyang regarding his solo comeback. He stated, "Well, first, I've released a new song too. But Taeyang is a friend who's like a hyung to me. I think he received a lot of stress and he seemed to be struggling (when preparing for the album). I'm happy he got satisfying results and I hope he does well."
After watching the clip, Taeyang commented, "Jiyong is currently busy with his overseas tour. He must've been very tired during the interview.. saying that it was all my drinking habits." He also emphasized that he's funnier than G-Dragon.
Taeyang also admitted that he does not have many friends. He explained, "I especially enjoy staying home so I don't go out to meet my friends often. I think my members are the only ones who I can call my friends. I had more friends when I was younger but they became distant after I started working."
