  • K-pop superstar Taeyang of Big Bang is heading back to Bangkok

K-pop superstar Taeyang, known for hits like "Wedding Dress" and "Ringa Linga," is set to revisit Bangkok on Sep 30 at Impact Challenger Hall.

The singer, who is a member of the Korean super-group Big Bang, will stop by as part of a solo tour to promote his forthcoming album White Night. It will be his first visit to Bangkok since 2015. 

Thought ticket details are still to be announced, the news came through the singer’s Facebook page:

Taeyang found fame alongside bandmate G-Dragon (who played in the Bangkok on Jul 8) in Big Bang, an outfit known for their eccentric style and sound infusing pop with hip-hop, R&B and rap in hits like "Fantastic Baby," "Loser" and "Haru Haru."

With a soulful voice likened to Michael Jackson, Taeyang's solo career has exploded alongside Big Bang's. His 2010 debut album Solar became the first K-pop music available worldwide on iTunes, and his second album, 2014's Rise, was the highest peaking South Korean soloist's album in the Billboard 200, slotting in at 112.

New album White Night is due to drop later this month. Here’s a sneak peek at what it’ll be like:
