Taeyang rocks televised music shows

Korean singer and Big Bang member Taeyang [YG Entertainment]

Big Bang member Taeyang claimed the top spot on both televised music shows over the weekend, racking up wins with title track "I Need a Girl" from his new solo album.

He scored wins on KBS' music program "Music Bank" and SBS' "Inkigayo" with "I Need a Girl" against K-pop idols Super Junior's "No Other."

"I would like to thank Yang Hyun-suk [C.E.O of YG Entertainment], my agency and also my fellow bandmates of Big Bang," Taeyang said in his acceptance speech, adding that he would especially like to thank close friend and groupmate G-Dragon.

Born Dong Young-bae, Taeyang was the first Big Bang member to debut as a solo artist, releasing his first mini-album "HOT" in May 2008. The album produced two hit singles "Prayer" and "Look Only at Me."

He has been promoting his first full-length album "Solar" and title track "Girl" on various music shows and entertainment programs. The latest single, featuring fellow Big Bang member G-Dragon and YG labelmate Sandara Park of girl band 2NE1, has topped numerous online and offline charts since its release in early July.
