For the uninitiated, Taeyang made his debut in the K-pop scene in 2006 as a member of hip hop K-pop group Big Bang. Taeyang branched out in 2008 with a mini solo album, "Hot", followed by 2010's "Solar" and this year's "RISE"

His second studio album Rise peaked at #112 on the US Billboard 200 Chart, becoming the highest ranking album by a Korean soloist to enter the chart. The album's title track "Eyes, Nose, Lips" peaked at #1 on Billboard K-pop Hot 100 Chart, giving him his first solo number one single on the chart.

Leader G-Dragon, T.O.P, Taeyang, Daesung, and Seungri officially debuted as a five-member group on August 19, 2006. Labeled as the "Nation's Boy Band", the members’ involvement in composing and producing their own music, most notably G-Dragon’s, has earned the group respect and praise from the music industry.
