Fans of Big Bang's Taeyang did something very meaningful to commemorate the singer's 26th birthday. His fans made a generous donation to the May 18 Memorial Foundation as a gift to celebrate Taeyang's big day.

According to a representative of The May 18 Foundation, members of Taeyang's fan site, "You Are the Sun, I Am the Moon", made a donation worth 5.18 million won (approx. 5,180 USD) on May 15. It was also revealed that fans wanted to make the donation under Taeyang's in honour of the singer's birthday this May 18.

Taeyang, greatly touched by his fans' initiative, left a message on his personal Twitter page. Taeyang said, "Since I already have so much, I hope you understand my hearty desire to have my fans give [presents] to those who need it more... I am thankful for all the love I receive and I will repay you all with good music,"

Taeyang's birthday falls on the same day as the historic May 18 Gwangju Democratic Uprising. Because of this, Taeyang reminded fans to honour and pay due respect to the lives that were lost during that day in history.

The May 18 Memorial Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in 1994 by the survivors of the Gwangju Democratic Uprising. Since its creation, the foundation has initiated various projects such as scholarship programs, memorial events, and giving out the prestigious Gwangju Prize for Human Rights.

In the meantime, Taeyang will return the favour to fans by releasing a new solo album this June 2, titled "Rise". From the album, fans can expect to hear Taeyang's "1AM" song, which he first performed at the Music Experiment concert in San Francisco, California last year.

The revelation of Taeyang's comeback date answers YG Entertainment "Who's Next?" teaser campaign.

Could Taeyang's solo release be a prelude to Big Bang's highly-awaited group comeback?

Once again, happy birthday, Taeyang!
