When asked to share his feelings about making a comeback, he answered, “While taking a break, I thought about what I’ve done up to date and what I should do in the future. And I wanted to make an official appearance like this to make an apology to everybody.”
Daesung went into hiatus since his involvement in a speeding accident that resulted in the death of a motorcyclist in May. The Big Bang member returned to the entertainment industry with the role of Ha Do Sung in the drama. His comeback and his first acting attempt have been drawing a lot of attention and support from his fans.
Daesung continued, “I thought I should return and show my better side. I’ve been nervous and worried under the pressure that I had to please people.” “Due to my activities, I often missed out on classes. And thanks to this role, I got to have direct experience in school life. I enjoyed shooting since the fellow cast members are about the same age as me and our lifestyles are similar.”
Big Bang‘s Daesung has once again apologized for upsetting fans with his scandal earlier this year. The idol has apologized numerous times recently, with the latest being at the ‘YG Family Concert‘ this past weekend.
On December 6th, Daesung appeared at a production event in Seoul for his MBN drama ‘What’s Up‘, where he said, “While I was on a break, I was able to think deeply about my work and the things I need to do and complete.”
He continued, “I deeply apologize for worrying so many people. In the future I, will work hard to bring happiness to even more people. I’m extremely nervous, but I will call upon my courage and do the best I can in everything I do.”
With regards to his drama filming, Daesung commented, “I’m happy that I was able to experience the ‘student life’ that I can’t fully experience as a celebrity.”
At the YG Family Concert, G-Dragon and Daesung spoke for the first time about the unfortunate incidents that happened over the past year. All five Big Bang members performed together for the first time since their “Love Song” promotions earlier this year.
After singing “Tonight,” T.O.P first opened up by saying, “It’s overwhelming to have all five Big Bang members back together on the same stage,” bringing tears to thousands of fans in attendance. “I’m happy to be on stage to celebrate YG Entertainment’s 15th year anniversary. This past year was a busy and eventful year for YGE, yet you all stood by us and supported us and we’d like to thank you for that.”
Daesung added, “It’s really been a long time since I performed on stage. I’m just happy to be here. The hardship I went through gave me a chance to realize how precious music and the stage are to me. I’ll always be thankful to go on stage.”
G-Dragon also said, “I’m so sorry for causing so much trouble because of my mistake. I’ll make sure not to have the same thing happen again. I think the only way to show my appreciation is to come up with better music and performance. I’ll do my best to give a big present to the fans.”
Daesung has carefully stepped back into the spotlight with his first acting piece.
Daesung appeared as the lead character named Ha Do Sung in the MBN drama What’s Up, which aired its first episode on December 3. This is the first time he’s appeared in front of the public in seven months, since his car crash incident in May.
Ha Do Sung (Daesung) calls himself Hades, and sings on television in a mask to hide his identity, because of his parents. But when he learns that someone has taken a photo of him, he gives up singing and tries out to become a musical major.
The broadcast recorded 0.46% viewership ratings (AGB Nielsen Media Research), which, while fairly low, is a good start for a new station, and Daesung’s acting was also received well.
Big Bang‘s Daesung, who withdrew from all activities after his car accident earlier this year, will be officially returning to entertainment in December.
Daesung’s first official appearance will take place on December 4th at the Seoul Olympic Stadium for the ‘YG Family Concert‘. This will be the first time in 7 months that Daesung will perform on stage.
The idol will also be attending the press conference for his upcoming weekend drama, ‘What’s Up‘, on December 6th at a wedding hall in Nonhyung-dong. Accompanied by co-stars Im Joo Hwan, Lee Soo Hyuk, Jang Hee Jin, and scriptwriter Song Ji Na, Daesung will reveal his feelings about his first acting experience.
With the return to his activities in Korea, Daesung also plans to participate in all of his overseas events. He will meet fans in Japan through the ‘YG Family Concert’ in January 2012, both at the Kyocera Dome in Osaka and at the Super Arena in Saitama.
Big Bang’s Daesung will make his first public appearance at the press conference for upcoming MBN drama “What’s Up” on December 6. Since his car accident in May, Daesung has suspended all activities in Korea.
“Daesung will appear in public at the press conference with other cast members,” an MBN official told local media. Daesung will appear alongside Im Joo Hwan, Lee Soo Hyuk, Jang Hee Jin, and Yim Joo Eun for the first press meeting.
This will be the first official public event in Korea for Daesung since his car accident last May. He made an appearance at the MTV “European Music Awards” earlier this month with Big Bang, but that show took place in the UK.
“What’s Up” is a TV drama series featuring Daesung as the main lead character. The drama is about the live of theater major students. The 18-part series was filmed before Daesung’s car accident. Meanwhile, Daesung will make his first stage appearance at the “YG Family Concert” next month in Korea. Welcome back Daesung!
MBN hasn’t released its final program schedule yet but it looks like we finally have the premiere date of Daesung‘s musical drama, What’s Up. On Naver, when you search for a drama, the duration or the date the series will air or aired is usually shown. As you can see below, the date for What’s Up (왓츠업) is December 3, 2011:
