"BIGBANG practically made BTS.." BTS' Suga becomes starstruck in front of Taeyang

Taeyang appeared as a guest on the 3rd episode of Suga's talk show 'SuchWiTa' which was released on January 18.

On this episode, Taeyang and Suga talked about music, their careers, collaboration with Jimin and more. Suga who's known as a huge fan of BIGBANG couldn't hide his feelings in front of Taeyang.

Firstly, Taeyang was introduced as an 'artist with an unrivaled voice.' From the beginning to the end of the conversation, Suga kept mentioned that he's so nervous. He said, "I'm so nervous because I'm such a huge fan.. Today's guest is really making me nervous."

Many of the members of BTS said their role model was BIGBANG in the past. Jungkook, Jimin and J-Hope said that BIGBANG or the BIGBANG members were the reason they started their career, and now Suga is another member of BTS who said so! Suga said, "It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that BIGBANG practically made BTS. You were musicians that I aspired to be like as a kid."

He also told a story about being such huge fans as a group, "The guys all love you. When we were younger.. when Jungkook turned 20, we said, 'Let's go out for a drink.' and we went to a karaoke place and sang 'Bang Bang Bang' about 100 times. We had memorized the entire choreography. We loved you that much."

Suga also explained his group mate Jimin's love for Taeyang, "He really studied you! I'm not kidding. You've never heard of him doing an impression of you, right? He even copies how you talk."


He couldn't stop admiring Taeyang and BIGBANG, saying, "I remember BIGBANG the most at MAMA. Because you had such a charismatic presence, we watched you like this.. well.. 'Let's become singers like them."


Suga couldn't hide being starstruck in front of Taeyang. "As a musician, I think this is an exciting moment for me. I don't have many moments like that. I still can't believe it right now. It's like I'm watching TV."

He has also talked about BIGBANG's impact on people and asked them to continue their music forever.

"BIGBANG is legendary.."


"We can't talk about Korean music history without BIGBANG. You left a huge legacy. There are so many young singers running forward after watching you. So I hope that you keep on performing forever. Please don't retire."


Towards the end of the conversation, Suga said he wanted to produce a song for Taeyang and also wanted to contact him before.

Are we going to witness another BIGBANG x BTS member collaboration?

I really like BTS, but man I cant stand Armies sometimes. We have been telling Armies this EXACT THING that Suga said for years, but every time the younger armies would always be so ignorant and say stuff like "Big Bang who?" "They weren't even as big as BTS." "BTS made KPOP popular."

The new KPOP fans just literally have no idea the impact of Big Bang. I'm so glad that Suga said what he said. Both groups are infamous and legendary.
