On the day before our first show, Daesung got into a car accident on his way going back to Seoul after filming Family Outing. He was seriously injured, he broke his nose and ribs and was told it would take at least 2-3 months for him to heal fully. Not only his performance in Shouting, but all events immediately went into in an urgent and tough situation. Everyone was in deep shock when we found out about his accident during our final rehearsal, and Seungri was the one who suffered the most.
Seungri started to get teary right after he heard about Daesung’s car accident. We all wanted to comfort him but he just walked away quietly and locked himself in the dressing room. He suddenly burst into tears and cried loudly for a really long time.

Lee Seunghyun, you have always had a soft place in my heart. Your dedication to BIGBANG is one of the most precious things and you should not be mocked for that. You landed a spot in BIGBANG because you earned it and no one should question that. Your initiative and drive is what I admire the most about you, and Oppa, you have accomplished so much. May you continue to excel in everything that you plan to pursue as I, as a fan, will continue to support you from behind.
Happy 23rd birthday, Lee Seunghyun! ♥ #HappyVIrthday
