During an appearance on CNN's Talk Asia, the South Korean band members talked about their music. G-Dragon said: "We're members of a group, but we're also family. There's a closeness between us that's on a completely different level than other boy bands."

Taeyang added: "It's hard at times, but the more we're together, the more we laugh. We're the happiest when the five of us are together."

Adding on, the members revealed their future plans as well. They said: "Performances, over time, become standardized. But the unique characters of our five members really show on stage, and that's what sets us apart... There's a lot we have left to do, but as we have done so far, we're going to have fun doing it. We're going to think even bigger, and we're going to become good models for the generations to come, while doing what we love."
