Two years after his debut with BIGBANG, Daesung released his first solo single, a Trot song titled "Nalbwa Gwisoon", and written by BIGBANG fellow member G-Dragon. In this same year, he joined the TV-Show Family Outing and takes part in the Korean version of Cats stage play. In 2009, he releases his second Trot single "Daebakiya!" and announces his participation in a second musical, Shouting, along with BIGBANG member Seungri.

In August 11, Daesung was involved in a car accident while traveling back home after a Family Outing filming. His injuries, which needed surgery, forced him to not take part on Shouting musical, neither Family Outing filming or BIGBANG activities. In October he made his comeback performing with BIGBANG for the "Dream Concert".
