Dae Sung was recruited in an audition, and even though he was jokingly known as “unpretty boy” among the staff, he turned out to be the most popular members. During training, he got to do vocal training with Wheesung, who’s one of his favorite artists. Wheesung had also help other members from BIG BANG.

While training, he was diagnosed with vocal cord nodules (a mass of tissue that grows on the vocal cords causing human speech to be difficult), which are common among singers and caused by strains on the vocal cords. They got worse in fall of 2006 and DS had to undergo treatment soon before the release of BIG BANG’s second single. Thankfully, Gummy, who had experienced the same problem, helped Dae Sung recover and manage his condition. They’ve been friends ever since. Gummy was the one who said “hello” in Korean in the Lie MV.

In April 2007, Dae Sung decided to quit high school to be able to focus full-time on Big Bang, but expressed a desire to pass his college entrance exams sometime in the future.

In October 2007, Dae Sung was featured in singer Nemo’s “Ije, Oori…” (이제,우리..) [Now We] digital single. This was the first M-Boat/YG collaboration since the split of their partnership some months earlier.

In 2010, YG Entertainment announced that DaeSung would release his debut solo mini-album. Yang Hyun Seok confidently stated, "Daesung has is own unique music taste that he really loves, so we provided him the composers who matches him well. When Daesung's new mini album is released, listeners will definitely be able to feel the colors of his music." His solo debut song - Cotton Candy was released.

Daesung also featured on Lee Hyori's Comeback album [H-Logic] in the song "How did we get". Lee Hyori and Daesung have maintained a close sibling relationship thanks their appearances on Family Outing Season 1.
