On August 31, Big Bang’s Taeyang fooled his fans with a series of tweets pretending to have a long-time girlfriend.

He first tweeted, “It’s time to tell everyone that I do have a girlfriend. It’s been a while since we’ve been together.”

Moments later, Taeyang wrote, “Say hello MINA noona introduced me to her…She is so fine!! Love it.. Is there anybody that looks like her..? ;)”

The accompanying photos, however, turned out to be cartoon drawings of a tanned girl, holding a “YB”-labeled, heart-shaped cushion. It’s unclear what had prompted Taeyang to tweet out these messages, but netizens sure seemed to have been shocked at the first few messages.

Netizens commented, “I almost got a heart attack!” “Wow, she really is hot,” and “Taeyang, don’t even try to date someone!”
