As not all people might know, Dong Hyun Bae is the older brother of Taeyang from Big Bang. Dong Hyun Bae stated that he feels sorry for his brother Taeyang because sometimes he is doing something that must be done by an older brother.
During his interview on Radio Star, Dong Hyun Bae admitted that his younger brother has been doing things that make him very touched. When he had a music show, he asked his younger brother to promote the event on social media. Then Taeyang answered weirdly saying that he only called when he needs something, but in the end, Taeyang was doing the same.
On another occasion, Taeyang called Dong Hyun Bae to ask him if he is ready for an event which was supposed to be a surprise appearance that was not in the schedule.
The older brother takes care of the younger in his own way by doing some small gestures that are really meaningful, such as getting some new clothes for the baby brother after seeing his messy wardrobe.
However, the older brother admitted feeling lonely now that his younger brother has gotten married. Taeyang married actress Min Hyo Rin whom he was dating for a while, since 2013 and in 2018 the couple decided to get married.

He explained that most actors and actresses like trying different roles that are unique, and so he also wants to act as someone who is an antagonist and a devilish person. He jokingly said that he wants to be Iron Man, he wants to try many things.
Moreover, he also wants to show his attractive qualities to the viewers, though he is still learning about it. Confidence and self-esteem are things he wants to dig deeper into to increase his attractive quality.
When asked about the future plans, he said he only wants to be better than last year, since he doesn’t want to be greedy. He wants more people to get to know him and recognize him a bit more.
He also shared a meaningful story about his brother Taeyang from Big Bang. For Taeyang’s birthday, every year Dong Hyun Bae sends him a message to congratulate him, to which Taeyang would only reply with a short and abrupt message, such as: “Thank you.” However, recently, on his 30th birthday, Dong Hyun Bae send Taeyang a long meaningful message encouraging him to continue well in his thirties, telling him to do even better, not get hurt and be responsible for his actions. Surprisingly, this time, the younger brother responded with an uncommon for him a message, he said, “I love you a lot.”
This is something touching between him and Taeyang. He admitted that expressing love is something he often does among siblings.
During the interview, he said that he wants to be a star since they already have a Sun in the house, referring to Taeyang (who has meaning “Sun” in the Korean language).
Hyun Bae stated on his Instagram that he helped the fundraising for a rare disease, the money of which will be used for building a nursing home hospital.
