Jung Hyung Don tried to call G-Dragon, 'we must end the fashion debate now' [NEWS]


Jung Hyung Don tried to call G-Dragon to end the 'fashion debate' which started ever since the airing of 'Infinity Challenge'.

Today on MBC's 'Everyone Weekly Idol'. the ranking of the idol fashionistas who are posing threats to Jung Hyung Don was released. The best 7 'terrorists' (since Jung thinks they are threatening his 'fashionista' position) and the worst 3 were disclosed.

When Jung Hyung Don revealed the ranking , he said, 'GD,G-Dragon, Jiyong, Kwon Ji Yong, Big Bang' Therefore, we can see he regards Big Bang's G-Dragon as his biggest rival in the field of fashion.

He elaborated, 'now I have to end this debate with G-Dragon' He also said he had tried phoning G-Dragon about this.

The netizens commented, 'I really wonder how G-Dragon manages to bring out such images' and 'I have voted for Jung Hyung Dong. G-Dragon, have you seen this?' etc.

Besides G-Dragon,in the same programme, the comedian was also calling 2PM's Jun Ho, Beast's Doo Jun together with Lizzy and Jung Ah of After School.

What do G-Dragon and Moon Geun Young have in common?



Do you know what Big Bang’s G-dragon and Moon Geun Young, a Korean actor, have in common? Both of them once severely suffered from hostile remarks and antagonistic fans, but they wisely overcame the negative responses toward them by discouraging themselves from overreacting to them.

The hostile remarks and rumors toward GD and Moon all started for trivial reasons as did for Tablo. The tongues and fingers of an unidentified antagonistic group of people toward such celebrities are strong enough to totally devastate certain famous figures’ lives.

GD and Moon, however, adopted a different strategy: holding their lips tight and only going about their own business. With such a strategy, Moon succeeded in changing her image by proving herself to be a good actor in various drama series and films, while G-Dragon as well showed signs of a rare genius in music by producing a series of his hit songs.

G-Dragon donates 50 million won to charity on his birthday



Moved by his fans who donated 20 million won to charity in his name, G-Dragon has also donated a large amount of money in celebration of his birthday.

It was G-Dragon's 24th birthday on 18th and on that day, it was reported that his fans donated 2 million won to Seoul National University Children's Hospital. According to YGE, after learning this, G-Dragon wanted to donate money himself too. He has donated 50 million won in total.

G-Dragon told his fans previously that he won't be accepting their birthday gifts this year. He said he made this decision because he does not want to burden the fans, who always prepare carefully-selected presents for him every year.

G-Dragon's warm care has inspired the fans to step forward in order to help others. Instead of buying him gifts, they collected 20 million won and donated it to the Children's Hospital, which has drawn public attention. According to him, "It was nice to see the fans thinking about the people around us and their donations mean a lot to me." He also expressed that he is willing to do voluntary work. What he did has lay a milestone in idols fandoms.

G-Dragon further elaborated, "It was completely unexpected. I am really impressed by what the fans have done. I am already thankful for the support they give us each time. They have good hearts for being aware how many difficulties others are going through. Because of this, I would also like to donate 50 million won for Seoul National University Children's Hospital. This birthday is very likely the most memorable one that I have ever had."

In fact, G-Dragon has already taken part in YGE's "WITH" campaign and has been donating annually. The campaign started in 2009. It is an official campaign in which YGE donates part of the revenues received from their artists's performances and selling of merchandises.

G-Dragon said, "In the meantime, we are very busy on working on our music and it is difficult for us to have a lot of contact with the fans so I want to take this chance to do more positive things to the society."

Moreover, the 5th debut anniversary of Big Bang is on the next day (19th) so this carries a greater meaning.

Park Myung Soo, "G-Dragon, Let's perform again with Park Bom on this winter"!



G-Dragon and Park Myung Soo reunited as Team GG at 2NE1's concert where they performed, "Having An Affair", with Park Bom.

Wearing black and white costumes, they delivered an exciting performance for 4000 fans. Together with Park Bom, who was in a mini black dress, their performance hyped up the atmosphere at the concert.

Park Myung Soo said, "It has been awhile since I met GD and Park Bom again after our performance for IC. I'm very glad. G-Dragon and I haven't been in touch after the program but it would be good if I can keep the friendship with him. Thanks to G-Dragon again."

G-Dragon said, "I have been watching 2NE1 closely ever since we were young and I'm so glad to be invited to their concert. I am just so amazed by their stage that I forget that I have to come out and perform too." Park Myung Soo added, "Now it's summer and when it's winter, I will ask G-Dragon and Bom to perform with me once again."

From another article:

G-Dragon jokingly said, "Because Park Bom and I performed on Infinity Challenge, we've been watching the show ever since (recently). We are now known as "Inifinity Challenge fans". Park Myung Soo is a brave soldier/warrior but we have to support ourselves too. (He's saying that if you worked with Park Myung Soo, you will get popular.)

G-Dragon's solo comeback set for next month [NEWS]



Fans don’t have to wait any longer for G-Dragon‘s solo comeback, as Big Bang‘s G-Dragon is set to return with his solo on October!

Next month, G-Dragon is scheduled to reveal his mini album and start his solo activities on October for the first time in a year and a half.

It was revealed that G-Dragon is currently working on last-minute items for his songs and will select his title song soon, in addition to envisioning his album concept. A YG Entertainment representative stated, “Because we are still writing songs for his album, we haven’t decided on his title song. When we are done, we will decide on the album concept.”

Many agencies are reportedly reconsidering other artists’ comeback dates that were set for October as G-Dragon is expected to overpower music charts with his solo comeback. One music industry representative stated, “From September, KARA, SNSD, and Brown Eyed Girls are planned to comeback. In addition to that, it’s hard to find a place for rookie singers with G-Dragon coming back on October.”

With Daesung‘s car accident, Big Bang members are focusing on their individual activities, starting with G-Dragon’s solo comeback.

G-Dragon set for solo release but date not finalized [NEWS]



YG Entertainment has said Big Bang member G-Dragon will make a comeback as a solo but has yet to decide on a date for it.

The remark came from an official at the top talent agency who denied reports from earlier in the day which said that G-Dragon would make his comeback to the local music scene with a new album next month.

"The reports regarding G-Dragon’s comeback in October are not true," she told 10Asia over the phone on Monday. "It is true that he has been recording several songs but a date for his comeback has not been finalized."

She went onto explain that YG artists are always working on their music and a release date of one's album is subject to change depending on its progress.

If G-Dragon unveils a new album next month it will be his first solo release since "Shine a Light" which went on sale in March 2010.

G-Dragon, whose real name is Kwon Ji-young, is the leader of his five-member boy band Big Bang, who were discovered and trained by YG Entertainment.

As a group, Big Bang has been taking a break from their music activities and were recently named the new models of clothing brand North Face.

Why did Big Bang’s G-Dragon have his head shaved?



According to a reliable source from the music industry, G-Dragon, a leader and producer of Big Bang, has recently concentrated all his energy on creating his new solo album.

Someone in the know says, “His shaved head shows his determination to put all his strength in his new album.”

In fact, GD shows up every day in his own office in the building of YG Entertainment, fully absorbed in producing his new album.

The album is scheduled to be released around in October and November, but the precise date is not yet fixed. Considering that he himself writes songs and lyrics, the date can be delayed.

YG Entertainment has kept their mouth closed about the details of GD’s new album, but president Yang Hyun Suk of YG Entertainment is said to make an official announcement regarding the album before long via YG Life, known as the official website of YG Entertainment.

Lee Yin Hye reveals that G-Dragon had once embraced her!



Actress Lee Yin Hye made the surprise confession that G-Dragon had once embraced her.

On the broadcast of QTV's "Women's Rankings" on September 8th, the best five undisclosed videos on "My life"s greatest consolations?" were revealed and it was on that topic when Lee Yin Hye revealed her story.

Lee Yin Hye said, “Actually, it happened during my third year in senior highschool. At that time I was busy MCing for children’s programs (BboBboBbo) and at the same time studying, it was too hard. The only place that I could lean on were the children, and G-Dragon was one of them.”

She continued, “For the children I had to work hard and in return I got comfort. In the end, thanks to G-Dragon and the kids I seem to have ended up well in school.”

G-Dragon's New Tattoo?



G-Dragon has inked his body multiple times in the past, and it looks like the Big Bang leader recently got another tattoo!

Fan reports began spreading across the internet after G-Dragon was seen publicly at the 2NE1 concert held a few weeks back. At a children’s hospital charity event last week, attentive VIPs noted the tattoo yet again.

Spoiler:
 

The tattoo itself has ignited interest among many, as it features a curious cartoon-like heart with arms and legs running on a path. Turns out that this is a famous icon by Keith Haring that is still commonly seen today.

An artist and social activist whose work responded to the New York City street culture of the 1980s, Keith made his mark on the 80′s by painting throughout the New York subway system in chalk. It wasn’t until later that his art made its way above ground to become mainstream. His works consisted of public art and pieces of pop art. His bold lines, vivid colors, and active figures carry strong messages of life and unity.

Even though the mastermind behind those crazy-odd creatures with three eyes or extra-long necks has passed, we can still remember him through his art, and, now, thanks in part to Jeremy Scott for his collaboration with Adidas, in fashion.

G-Dragon created huge anticipation!



Around the months of October and November, the biggest girl groups and hottest ‘icons’ are going to be butting heads, releasing their new albums around the same time for a competitive battle to the top. Big Bang’s G-Dragon will also be unleashing his new album around October. Contestants of ‘Superstar K2’ will be coming out with their new genres and ballads respectively, while scheduling their comeback dates.

The rumors and talk about the actual comeback date for Big Bang’s G-Dragon is fluttering around the K-pop industry. That’s how much of an issue his highly anticipated comeback is. Last year in March, G-Dragon announced his first solo promotions, ‘Shine-A-light.

It is prospected that the second half of the year will be a hot one, due to the artists at the end of the year award ceremonies. There is a truth in the tendency that promotions active near the latter half of the year, as opposed to the early half of the year, receive much more interest and popularity. One music official commented, “No matter how determined and hard the artists promote in the early half of the year, if they don’t have promotions in the latter half of the year, they will be crushed by other artists who promote in the latter half. Even though importance of quality has been raised, there are cases that pressure the rush of the album announcement date. K-pop this October and November is very much highly anticipated and eagerly awaited upon for.”

G-Dragon chooses Kim Min Hee as the greatest fashionista



OnStyle‘s ‘Style Magazine‘ recently went behind-the-scenes of G-Dragon‘s fashion photoshoot and interviewed the star on fashion trends and fashionistas.

When asked to choose the ultimate fashionista, G-Dragon immediately chose actress Kim Min Hee. He reasoned, “Kim Min Hee nuna is able to pull off any sort of style. Every time I see her, she has this really distinctive flair that I think is amazing. Sometimes she’ll look boyish, sometimes innocent, and sometimes even sexy. She doesn’t stand out too much and matches to every situation she’s in. I think she’s pretty even in just a white t-shirt and jeans.”

When asked to choose a trend that he thinks will be popular for the fall season, he replied, “SNSD socks. Also, one of my fashion principles is wearing my pants lowered.”

The episode will also delve into why he’s obsessed with accessories, where he normally goes shopping, and fashion styles he’d love to try one day. Check it out on September 17th.

G-Dragon writes his songs even in a crowded airport? [NEWS]



Big Bang’s G-Dragon’s airport photo is the latest buzz on the web, but not for the reasons one might expect from a fashionista like GD himself.

The photo above was posted on an online community board on the 23rd under the title, “G-Dragon writes his songs even at the airport”.

The poster described, “G-Dragon was standing in the baggage claim area wearing a headphone. Then suddenly he took out a piece of paper and started writing something on it. I took a peek at it and I was surprised to see that he as writing music notes”.

As you can see in the photo G-Dragon is in a busy airport with many people around him, but when his musical genius kicks in he has to write his songs regardless of the time or place.

After seeing the photo the netizens commented, “So this is how managed to write more than 100 songs”, “It’s nice to see him concentrating so hard”, “He looks good even when he’s writing songs”, and so on.

G-Dragon will make a comeback, but no specific date for now!



After the release of his first solo album “Shine A Light” in March, he worked on Big Bang’s album and various activities with the unit GD&T.O.P. G-Dragon is attracting many fans’ attention with the news of his new solo album.

According to an acquaintance of the entertainment industry, G-Dragon’s solo album will be released this month, but nothing is certain. It’s because the singers of YG Entertainment that G-Dragon is in, don’t have an exact date of an album’s release, but rather decide to release whenever the song reaches near perfection.

Meanwhile, Big Bang is nominated for 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards – World Wide Act Asia Pacific, which will be held November 6 at Northern Ireland.

G-Dragon caught smoking marijuana but gets off with a suspension of indictment



It has been revealed that Big Bang’s G-Dragon had been investigated by the prosecutors’ office of Korea for allegedly smoking marijuana.

Seoul central prosecutors’ office, violent criminal division’s chief prosecutor has stated, “We decided to rule suspension of indictment on behalf of G-Dragon for him breaking the drug law.” According to the prosecutors’ office G-Dragon has smoked marijuana in Japan back in May and he was tested positive for a drug test done in July.

A spokesperson for the prosecutors’ office stated:
“G-Dragon was given a cigarette in a club in Japan from an individual who he didn’t even know the name. He said it smelled different from the regular cigarettes and he suspected it of being marijuana, but that he did smoke a little anyway.

G-Dragon is not a regular smoker of marijuana and this is his first time smoking it. Also, the amount of it he had in his system was too small to lawfully rule it a positive drug test. We have considered the fact that he is only a college student and therefore have ruled suspension of indictment on his behalf.”
By receiving a suspension of indictment the crimes go under your records, but for considerations of age, the severity of crime, and behavior after the fact, you do not get prosecuted.

“YGE State of Emergency”: From G-Dragon & Marijuana, Daesung’s Car Accident, to Stocks

YG Entertainment is in a state of emergency because of the mishaps that have been occurring lately, that started with Daesung’s unfortunate accident and now G-Dragon and his suspension of indictment for smoking marijuana.

Big Bang’s G-Dragon has caused shockwaves due to his smoking marijuana. He is currently under the suspension of indictment (which is basically a warning) for smoking marijuana in Japan. According to a representative of the prosecutor’s office, “On June 15, there was a search-and-seizure and the urine test at that time had come out negative, in July a hair drug test turned out positive.”

The CEO of YG Entertainment, Yang Hyun Suk stated, “It is shocking, after we have determined the matter of fact we will give out an official response.” An insider of YG Entertainment also stated, “We are holding an emergency meeting. It appears that a lot of plans for Big Bang and GD&TOP need to be changed. G-Dragon will ‘take out some time for self-reflection’ (He is going to take a break from promoting activities). He feels a lot of remorse at the moment.”

Originally, GD&TOP were going to officially debut in Japan with the single “Oh Yeah (Feat. BOM)” on November 9.

Currently Big Bang’s other member Daesung is also going through some “self-reflection time” because of the car accident that resulted in another man’s death. Although he was acquitted, it is being said that he will not return within this year.

YG Entertainment has another major problem, stocks. In June YG Entertainment went through the initial phase for being listed on KOSDAQ, but they are still not listed. Experts are stating that the recent string of incidents will probably not stop YG Entertainment from being listed. However, YG Entertainment relies on its celebrities and their activities. Thus, all of these accidents that are occurring will probably have a negative impact on YG Entertainment stocks if they do become listed.

Currently YG Entertainment recorded sales of nearly $45 million from January 1 to June 30. 27.98% is from Big Bang’s concerts such as “2011 BIG Show” and “Love & Hope.”

YG Entertainment has just released an official statement about their position regarding the issues surrounding G-Dragon‘s marijuana case.

In the documents released to the press, YG Entertainment stated,

We would like to sincerely offer our deepest apologies to all the fans and to everyone who appreciates Big Bang’s music.

G-Dragon underwent an investigation for smoking marijuana last July. Because G-Dragon had never smoked marijuana, we cooperated with the investigation confidently and proceeded as usual with scheduled events. However, according to the hair strand test, G-Dragon tested positive for minuscule amounts of marijuana, which shocked us.

While we were contemplating what the reason could be, we thought of the event that occurred in May during their Japan tour. There was a drinking event to celebrate a successful concert with various Japanese associates who visited us at the concert location. When G-Dragon went to use the restroom, a young person who seemed to be a Japanese fan recognized G-Dragon and offered him a cigarette as he greeted him. Out of courtesy, G-Dragon took two or three puffs, but upon feeling that it was different from normal cigarettes, he flushed it down the toilet right away.

We thought it to be a trivial event, and soon we were unable to remember that it ever happened. However, when we began to ponder over the reason for this positive test, that night’s event returned as the likely cause. We contacted the prosecution right away and related the event exactly as it happened.

Although there was no legal penalty issued, the guilty conscience and responsibility for causing everyone pain is a weight that G-Dragon and the company must now carry upon our shoulders, and it is heavier than any penalty.

As celebrities who have received a lot of interest from the public, and as a company who is supposed to thoroughly manage them, we sincerely regret the emergence of this situation, and have been self-reflecting on our carelessness. We deeply bow our heads as we apologize for causing you to worry once again, and we will try our best to make sure this type of event does not occur again.

Prosecutor in-charge of G-Dragon's case interviewed

Major points from the prosecutor's interview:

- Shaving his head had nothing to do with this issue. The test was middle of June. He shaved his head 2 months later. The case was already over then. I didn't even know that he shaved his hair. There's no connection at all.

- We didn't let the public know so soon because he's a celebrity and this is just a small case. We knew that he didn't do it consistently because only his hair was tested positive, not his urine.

- “Since G-Dragon is a first offender and he didn’t smoke a lot, we suspended the indictment for him. We also considered that he is a college student and he deeply regrets what he did.”

*An indictment is a formal charge of accusation of a crime. To suspend that crime means there will no longer be charges held against him.

Big Bang’s G-Dragon will not be blacklisted from broadcast appearances



Big Bang‘s G-Dragon made headlines recently after it was revealed he tested positive for marijuana usage. Considering how his peers in the industry were blacklisted for scandals, netizens have been wondering whether he too will be banned from appearing on the nation’s biggest public broadcasting channels, KBS, MBC, and SBS.

Fans can breathe a sigh of relief, as KBS, MBC, and SBS officially announced that “appearance sanctions [against G-Dragon] will not be made.”

To start, KBS and MBC have confirmed that they will not be imposing any restrictions on G-Dragon. A representative of KBS stated, “Kwon Ji Yong‘s indictment is currently suspended and thus he is not standing before the law. Consequently, imposing a restriction would be difficult.”

MBC also announced, “We could talk about appearance restrictions, but opening a whole conference is not yet decided. We would usually have a meeting if it were civil or criminal cases, but when a case’s indictment is suspended, we typically will not open one.”

SBS also came out with similar announcements to KBS and MBC, stating that chances of restricting G-Dragon’s TV appearance would be low.

Normally, an official decision for a celebrity’s removal from a broadcast appearance is normally made after each of the broadcasting stations hold a meeting with the Performers’ Regulation Commission. Currently, a total of 12 celebrities have been blacklisted by MBC and KBS after being hit with drug-related charges. Some of these include Oh Kwang Rok, Yoon Sul Hee, Jun In Kwon, Ju Ji Hoon, and Crown J.

Chief prosecutor speaks about G-Dragon's Marijuana case!



After 'G-Dragon‘s marijuana investigation came to light', many netizens immediately commented on how the idol must’ve shaved off his hair to avoid getting caught. The investigation required both a urine and hair sample.

To refute these accusations, a chief prosecutor of the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office named Kim Hwe Jong stepped forward to say, “G-Dragon and the shaving of his head during the marijuana investigation have no relation to one another“.
On October 5th, prosecutor Kim had a phone interview with a reporter and said,

“The truth is that Kwon Ji Yong‘s [G-Dragon] marijuana examination took place in the middle of June, not in July. We didn’t even know that Kwon Ji Yong shaved his head in August; by then, it was a closed case. Therefore, you can’t say that he shaved his head in order to avoid further testing. Since it is a closed case, there are no plans to hand out a probation or to hold further investigations.“

The reporter then asked about G-Dragon’s behavior and confession during the investigation. (G-Dragon had confessed to smoking marijuana in a club while he was visiting Japan for a performance in mid-May.)
Chief Prosecutor Kim said, ”Kwon Ji Yong appeared to be regretful. There were no difficulties when we were trying to hear his confession. He told the truth, as the positive results had already been released. He also expressed his will to never smoke marijuana.”

G-Dragon did not receive a suspension or indictment for his charges. Many netizens expressed whether this was too light a judgment, considering his offense.
Chief prosecutor Kim explained,

“It’s not like that in any way. This type of case is one that would normally not carry a suspension. He is a college student, and it’s his first offense. Also, the investigation’s results only detected a very small amount. The fact that he was a college student weighed most heavily. College students and grown adults are [judged] differently, because it may have a larger impact on their future.“

And why was this revealed so late?
Kim replied, ”Since Kwon Ji Yong is a public figure, the case could not be easily stated. The case was revealed, it seems, because rumors were going around about it.”
At this time, all activities for G-Dragon have been temporarily suspended. YG Entertainment has issued an official apology, and the national broadcasting networks of 'KBS, SBS, & MBC have all declared that G-Dragon will not be blacklisted from any appearances'.

G-Dragon completes North Face photoshoot with Big Bang as planned [NEWS]


Although the Korean media reported yesterday that Big Bang had canceled a scheduled photoshoot for a North Face advertisement in light of recent events, it was revealed that G-Dragon and the Big Bang members had attended the photoshoot as planned on October 5th.

An official from the advertising industry stated, “A star’s every action heavily affects the advertising world. But taking into consideration that G-Dragon was not officially indicted, he’s most likely to not run into significant problems.”

It’s also been reported that the many brands Big Bang is currently endorsing have not yet approached YG Entertainment with any issues.

Why was G-Dragon singled out?




Big Bang’s G-Dragon received a suspension of indictment recently for smoking marijuana. As ripples of the events are shocking the fans, some are starting to wonder why out of all the members in Big Bang, only G-Dragon was investigated for the charges.

According to the prosecution, G-Dragon smoked marijuana while in Japan in mid-May. YG Entertainment, G-Dragon’s management company, also officially issued a statement of admission and apology, “While on tour in Japan in May, they were out drinking with the event coordinators in Japan and when G-Dragon went to the restroom, someone who appeared to be a fan gave him what he thought was a cigarette. He inhaled a couple of times but felt different from a cigarette so he remembers throwing it out in the toilette”. It is believed that G-Dragon’s contact with marijuana occurred during Big Bang’s tour in Japan from May 10th through the 19th in Osaka, Chiba, and Nagoya.

Some are starting to wonder then why G-Dragon was singled out. If Big Bang was on tour together during that time, Why was G-Dragon the only one subjected to the urine and hair testing for drugs? The prosecutor’s office simply stated, “There was only information regarding G-Dragon. There was no mention of other members, therefore only G-Dragon was investigated”.

The fans wonder yet, because once drug-related stories break out they tend to continue with others given past history. Entertainment industry insiders are worried that G-Dragon’s investigation will be followed by others in a string. The prosecutor’s office verified, “There are no other active investigations ongoing at this time other than G-Dragon”. For now.
