In fact, when BIGBANG was finalized by YG Entertainment, just the two of them were supposed to debut as a duo. However, they were later joined by four other trainees, T.O.P., Daesung, Seungri, and Jang Hyun-Seung.

At the age of 13, the duo went to trainees at YG Entertainment. They together debut with BIGBANG in 2006. The following year the band released their first album Big Band Vol. 1. Prior to their first album, they had released several single albums.
