Taeyang, 29, and Min Hyo Rin, 31, first met in 2014. The actress starred in the singer’s music video for “1AM” and it was there that they fell in love. G-Dragon was the one who suggested Hyo Rin to be the female character in the MV, and it turned out that Taeyang made the right decision when he agreed with the idea.
The couple confirmed their dating status in 2015 and in 2016, they were rumored to have broken up. Their agencies denied the rumors and stressed that Taeyang and Min Hyo Rin’s relationship has gotten even stronger.
Meanwhile, Taeyang will be the next Big Bang member to enlist. TOP is already serving as a public service worker after being expelled from the police unit due to his controversial marijuana case. The rest of the Big Bang members are expected to serve in the army around the same time so they can make a comeback, as a whole group, by 2020.
