We started planning this documentary three years ago and it was a long process leading up to this release date. It took a little while but I think now is the perfect time and I’m glad I can finally present this to all of you. A lot of the documentary is footage from the past so I get a bit shy when I watch myself because I realize I’ve matured quite a bit since then. But I’m very thankful for this film because I was able to capture and relive the time and moments we had together. I’m excited to be able to share all of those moments with you. I hope everyone is staying safe at home and I hope you enjoy this film! ☀️ Link in bio #TAEYANG #태양 #DOCUMENTARY #白夜 #WHITENIGHT #백야 #태양이지지않는밤 #20200518_7PM #COMINGSOON #YG

He also lets on why he decided to marry South Korean actress Min, 34.

In a heartfelt declaration, he says: "Even now, she's the only person who continues to change me as a person. And those changes always make me into a better, more solid person. That's why I decided to walk along with her for the rest of my life."

The couple tied the knot in February 2018, almost three years after confirming they were dating in May 2015.
