After 2 weeks of G-Dragon’s MOTTE in Manila concert, another BIGBANG member held a concert in Manila. This time, it is Dong Youngbae also known as Taeyang. Taeyang as I mentioned, is one of the members of BIGBANG under YG Entertainment and is known for songs like Wedding Dress and Eyes, Nose, Lips.
Last September 22 of this year, Taeyang brought his White Night concert in Manila held at Smart Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City. The concert started past 8:00 in the evening as Taeyang himself said that it will be somewhat delayed since we will wait for other VIPs to come even if it is past 8pm.
Around 8:15 in the evening, lights were turned off and “White Night (intro)” was played as sign that Taeyang will be out and will start the concert in a few. Then the music for “Ringa Linga” was played and Taeyang came out from the stage giving all the hype to us, VIPs. Everyone was screaming up to the top of their lungs for Taeyang and singing to the heart’s content as “Ringa Linga” was being played. He was in all white outfit reflecting his title’s concert, “White Night.” After the song, Taeyang said, “Mabuhay! Yeah, Manila you ready? You guys ready? Okay, here we go.” Every VIP were shouting because we are so ready for Taeyang. ❤️
“Body” and “Superstar” were the next songs, and every VIP was just having fun and partying together! And of course, he showed some of his dance skills again which made everyone amazed. During “Body,” we were jumping as he sings while for “Superstar,” we were waiving the crownstick with the beat of the song. For “Wake Me Up,” Taeyang was in a slightly elevatad stage at the middle and everyone was singing along with him. “Only Look At Me” and “Wedding Dress” were next, and usual everyone went crazy over the classic songs of Taeyang. Everyone was singing with him and our Youngbae showed his dancinig skills which of course, everyone loves which started all the screaming for him again.
After singing “Wedding Dress,” he had a little talk to us, PH VIPs. I’m not quite sure to some words he said but based on what I heard it is the following:
“Mabuhay! This is Taeyang, nice to meet you. What’s up Manila? White Night concert in Manila, I would like to say thank you for coming to the show. The first time I came to the Manila was for the BIGBANG Alive tour. Ever since then, I’ve been to Manila many times already. The people here are very passionate and amazing. And I am so happy to see you guys again. I miss you guys a lot. I miss you guys. I want you guys? You miss me? Did you miss me? Thank you, I miss you a lot.
I guess, I should talk about my new album. My album, “White Night.” Have you guys keep listening? I guess no one here who doesn’t know my album? Right? I hope not. *laugh* What do you guys think about my new album? It is good right? So tonight, you gotta here a lot of my new songs. Personally, I made most effort and fun making this album. I hope the messaged reached you and that ..
Tonight, should we play the next song? So you guys, can you guess what song is next? What song will be? *VIPs says random songs* The song is, the next song is amazing.”
During when Taeyang asked if VIPs missed him, every VIP was screaming “Yes.” and I really hope he feels that we really do miss our Youngbae. ❤️❤️
“Amazing” was played followed by “1AM,” “Naked,” and “So Good.” After singing those songs, he said to the crowd: “So now, I hope we gotta sing along the next song. You’all ready? I want you to sing as loud as you can, okay? Ready, let’s go!” And “I Need A Girl” was next. He sang the song in acoustic version first then followed by the original one. Everyone were going crazy since it was one of Taeyang’s best classic songs of all time!❤️
Next songs were from his recent album which were “Empty Road” and “Ride.” His voice was just so awesome. It really does feel that Taeyang ate his own CD because his voice is just so perfect.
And the stage that I liked the best was for the song “Love You To Death.” I just loved the stage where it seems there was a solar eclipse and Taeyang stood up at the middle. The effects were also great which made the concert more awesome!
Next song made every VIP teary eyed since it was “Last Dance” by BIGBANG. Everyone was really singing with Taeyang singing ‘Last Dance’ and I really do hope he knows how we miss the five kings. After the song, we chanted “Dong Youngae! Dong Youngbae! Dong Youngbae!”
He said: “You guys having fun? That song is you just head. That song is BIGBANG’s song. What song? How is the song when I sing it alone? How is it?Whenever I sing this song, I miss the BIGBANG members. You guys miss them too? I think the biggest happiness and enjoying my life is having my BIGBANG members. We were to perform our music and last for 10 years doing our music because of you guys. You guys have always been our side.
Did you guys like my concert? From the new performances? Hope you guys can… my music. That brings to much joy to me and I dont i would ever forget tonight. I love you. So, I have to ask what time is it now? *everyone tells different time to him* No one’s telling me the right time.”
The last song before the encore was “Darling.” He was again in all white outfit having white long sleeves. Everyone was singing with “Darling youuuu” and still cheering for him.
Every VIP were shouting “Dong Youngbae! Dong Youngbae! Dong Youngbae!” waiting for his encore and after a few minutes he was out with a new outfit.
For his encore he sang “Break Down,” “Good Boy,” and “Stay With Me.” Everyone was all hyped singing with Taeyang. Every VIP were singing loudly and chanting for him. It seemed the concert turned to a big party full of VIPs. ❤️
“Bang Bang Bang,” and “Fantastic Baby” were up next and as expected, every VIP went wild with the two songs. Who wouldn’t be, right? Everyone was singing with Taeyang even the parts of other BIGBANG members. Even the fanchants were on point during those two songs. This just shows how VIPs truly miss BIGBANG. ❤️
“Eyes, Nose, Lips” was the finale song for the White Night in Manila. Everyone was singing along with Taeyang again, as in word by word. It was an event worth to be part of and to witness it.
Again, no regrets in attending Taeyang’s White Night in Manila. The concert is worth watching and it was really fun! It is another concert that I will never forget and am happy to be able to watch it. Also to be able to witness Dong Youngbae having his first solo concert in Manila. ❤️❤️❤️
To Dong Youngbae, VIPs will always support and love you (and BIGBANG too!). We will wait until all the five of you will comeback and be together again. VIPs will always be here until whenever! ❤️❤️❤️
