071216 SBS Inkigayo Last Farewell
Most VIPs are aware that Seungri sustained ankle injuries while he was performing during the Great Concert of 2007. However, he was also injured just a mere two weeks prior during rehearsals for the Golden Disk Awards. He was taken to hospital, given x-rays and directed by doctors to rest for two weeks. Seungri knew if he followed this advice he would miss out on the Golden Disks, Music Core’s 100th episode, Inkigayo and possibly even the Great Concert. Stubborn not to let VIP down, Seungri performed on every broadcast.
But no performance was as heartbreaking as 071216 SBS Inkigayo. Seungri started the show well, dancing to the best of his ability, but progressively things got worse. From limping from one end of the stage to the other to stopping entirely to grip his hurting leg, try as he might he could not hide the pain from his face.
As the last note fell, he left the stage and was taken to the hospital for another examination. Big Bang won the mutizen that day and the four stood solemn as they gave their speech. G-Dragon’s eyes were wet in tears as both he and Taeyang included a special thank you in Seungri’s name. As they took the stage for their encore performance, the members shouted their love and appreciation for their maknae, "Seungri jjang! Seungri hwaiting!"
This is the man most people considered to be the ‘weakest’ of his group. The ‘expendable’ one. The member who ‘contributed nothing’ to Big Bang and showed ‘no talent.’
