Taeyang Scammed While Vacationing In Italy
Big Bang crooner Taeyang revealed how a local vendor approached him as a friend and tricked him into buying his item.
The 28-year-old Hallyu star took a break from a hectic schedule and updated his fans as he traveled Europe as a tourist.
He especially shared an incident on Instagram where he met a local trickster in Italy who approached him.
"Right before he came...," wrote the singer on Sunday as a caption to a photo of himself and his companion posing in front of a water fountain.
The next photo showed a third person on the picture touching a strand of Taeyang's dyed hair.
"The moment he liked my hair... #BFF," wrote Taeyang.
Then the local apparently handed him a handmade bracelet and Taeyang took it with the thought that he made a friend in Italy. He realized quickly how wrong he was.
"He said he liked my hair and gave me a friendship bracelet. Then he asked me for 5 euros so I gave it to him for our friendship. #BestFriendsForever #BFF," wrote Taeyang in the third series of photo.
The Big Bang star took the incident lightly and didn't allow it to dampen his vacation mode. He even posted a photo of the friendship bracelet that cost him 5 Euros.
The artist, who's confirmed to make a solo comeback this year, considers his four Big Bang members as his precious friends.
He revealed during the "Big Bang 10 The Exhibition: A to Z" press conference last year why he's been really happy recently.
"I feel just how precious the members are [to me] the older I get," allkpop quoted the singer as saying. "When we sit down for a meal together after a show, I feel so happy. I can't help but think about how, if not for Big Bang, then I probably wouldn't be enjoying delicious food with such great company."
