The shirt is an odd fit around the neck and the way you remove the actual CD is really random, but it's all just so damn pretty. No scans of the book because I don't have a scanner at home. I'm sure someone will post them soon.

Big Bang member Taeyang will release his first full-length album today, according to his agency YG Entertainment.
YG announced in a press release that the deluxe version of his first studio release "Solar" will hit stores today and that the music video for his title track "I Need a Girl," featuring fellow group mate G-Dragon and 2NE1 member Sandara Park, will be unveiled at 6 p.m.
“I Need a Girl” sings of the ideal woman of every man living in the 21st century such as a 'girl who looks better in jeans than a skirt.'
YG stated that retail stores have been demanding for more copies of the deluxe edition, limited to only 30,000 copies, since the number of orders has reached 50,000.
Accordingly, the agency is currently in talks to pull up the release date for the regular version, originally set for release on July 9, by two or three days.
Taeyang, whose real name is Dong Young-bae, made his debut as a member of Big Bang in 2005. He is the first member to debut as a solo artist, releasing his first mini-album "HOT" in May 2008. He also released two digital singles "Wedding Dress" and "Where U At" last November.
He will be making his music comeback on Mnet's televised music program "M! Countdown" later today, performing his title track "I Need a Girl" with G-Dragon. He will also be appearing on other music shows over the weekend to promote his new album.
Preorder normal edition from YesAsia (I think Deluxe is already sold out, but in case there has been cancellations try refreshing this page).
ETA: You can also now buy Taeyang's I Need a Girl (feat. G-Dragon) single from Itunes.

Singer MC Mong, 31, is suspected of having dodged mandatory military service by intentionally having healthy teeth extracted.
Police said they have been conducting an investigation of the singer following an allegation that he illegally avoided military service.
According to the police, the singer had removed some 10 teeth, mostly molars, and was exempted from compulsory military service in 2004 due to dental problems.
"We had planned to summon him Thursday, but he requested time to consult with his lawyers," a police officer said. "We will question him next week to hear explanations on why he had so many of his teeth pulled out."
MCMong, whose real name is Shin Dong-hyun, is a popular singer and actor currently appearing on KBS's variety show "1 Night 2 Days" on Sundays.
Police finished an inquiry into the dentist who took care of his teeth.
They also asked for experts' opinions on the dental X-rays, but could not definitely conclude whether it was for medical purposes or not.
However, IS Entermedia, the singer's agency, immediately refuted the allegation of dodging military service.
"He was exempted from military service because of his dental problems, but there was nothing illegal about it. His exemption from military service is legitimate," it said in a press release.
The agency's judicial team said they will clear up the allegations during police questioning and consider taking legal action against the local broadcasting station that first reported the news.
MCMong made his debut in 1998 as a member of the hip hop band People Crew and gained popularity after starring in the hit sitcom series "Non-Stop 4" in 2003.
The following year, he released first solo single "180 Degrees." He also collaborated with other singers such as Park Hyo Shin, Ivy, and MayBee. His latest album "Humanimal" was released in July 2009.
