Attention is drawn to Big Bang member TOP after news reveal that he is actually the grandson of late writer Seo Geun Bae.

It was revealed in Big Bang’s book ‘Shouting to you in the world’ that TOP is the grandson of late writer Seo Geun Bae.

Even at the end of the book where at his own signature, TOP also mentioned about his grandfather, “Even in times when he is seriously ill, he had wrote an amazing story ‘Accomplish you dreams’. And when times are difficult for me, I get strength when I remember the words of my grandfather.”

Meanwhile, Seo Geun Bae who debut with novels like ‘Tak Bo’ and ‘Hang Goo’ in 1950, passed away in 2007.
