To the show, netizens left reactions such as, ‘G-Dragon explodes with femininity! He looks gentler than a girl. It’s funny and cute at the same time’ and ‘Seungri speaks like a native’.

Big Bang‘s G-Dragon opened up regarding his dating rumors.
On the February 20th episode of SBS ‘Healing Camp‘, G-Dragon was targeted as the Big Bang member who evoked the most dating rumors.
“I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t meet anyone,” he said. “But when I do, I try to do it in secret because it can really cause harm to the other person.”
MC Kim Jae Dong then asked, “By saying it would cause harm to the other person, are you saying that this person is also someone in the industry?”, to which G-Dragon responded, “That’s something only I know,” evoking curiosity amongst viewers.
Interviewer: It has been a long time. How have you been?
GD: I’ve been fine. I spent my time with my family. Prepared for this album and spent some time thinking this and that.
I: What is your thought about singers? I wonder, what do you think about your figure?
GD: Well, when I was a young boy, I thought singers are cool. That’s why I wanted to be a singer in my early years. I think Bigbang is cool. Not being on the stage, but also in real life. I don’t mean that they are handsome and tall. I mean they got swag. There are so many things that I have to learn as a friend, a young brother, and an older brother. It makes me a burden because I’m a leader but it also makes me try to push myself.
I: What is your biggest stress/pressure?
GD: Preparing for the next album. It is one of biggest pressure to me because the next album is more important than the last one. When I had to prepare for the last album, ‘TONIGHT’, I thought “This is the most important album!” When I prepared for this album, I thought “This album is the most important one!” Maybe I will think again the same when I prepare for a new album. It is also one of my pleasant worries. I was pulsating. Well, I don’t know. Last year, ‘TONIGHT’ was my favorite album. And now it’s ‘BLUE’. My taste in music changes continuously and I share it to people. I wonder what they will say to me after they listen to it and what part they like the most. I’m going well.
I: Bigbang sings mainly about LOVE.
GD: I think many Korean think about love a lot and they want comfort. When you hear music, you think that “Oh this lyrics is what I have in mind.” or when you are sad, you hear the music and cry. That’s why music is powerful.
Big Bang has just unveiled their final image teaser, this time featuring member G-Dragon!
Big Bang’s leader finalizes the dramatic theme previously established by T.O.P , Daesung, Taeyang, and Seungri with his A-line haircut.
Unlike the other members’ photos, there’s no hospital equipment to be found. Instead, G-Dragon posed with frozen snow on his face and hair — indicating that the boys were recently resuscitated back to the (warm) spotlight after a cold, death-like spell.
YG Entertainment has also released a 30-second video clip featuring a short interview with G-Dragon himself. In his video, G-Dragon talked about the mentality he adopted when he had to overcome his obstacles.
Earlier today, Big Bang‘s maknae Seungri shared a new teaser image of the group’s leader G-Dragon via his me2day page along with the words, ‘GD is Alive‘.
Previously, we reported that Big Bang members G-Dragon and Daesung would be appearing on SBS ‘Healing Camp‘. We have received further information about the recording.
According to reports, the show will take place at YG headquarters in Seoul. G-Dragon and Daesung will once again be apologizing to viewers and fans through the show for their previous controversies, which includes a fatal car accident and marijuana usage. Their first formal apology occurred back in December of last year during the ‘15th Anniversary YG Family Concert‘.
An insider from the show revealed that the two members had a long talk with hosts Lee Kyung Kyu, Kim Jae Dong, and Han Hye Jin as they reflected back on the hardships they suffered in 2011. The two idols firmly stated, “We want to apologize before asking for forgiveness.”
Fortunately, the mood of the set wasn’t all dark and sad. Fellow members Taeyang, T.O.P, and Seungri also made appearances during the middle of the show and really brightened the atmosphere with fun talks.
Big Bang members, G-Dragon and Daesung, have decided to open up about their respective controversies through SBS TV‘s ’Healing Camp‘.
On February 10th, an SBS representative revealed that the two idols wrapped up recording for the show, where they discussed their personal struggles after getting embroiled in scandals involving marijuana and a fatal car accident.
“The two carefully talked about how they felt when the controversies emerged, and the pain they went through during their hiatus,” said a staff member.
G-Dragon and Daesung apologized to their fans back in December of 2011 when they performed for the ‘15th Anniversary YG Family Concert‘. Additionally, Daesung made his small-screen comeback after a long hiatus through MBN‘s drama, ‘What’s Up‘. Their upcoming appearance on ‘Healing Camp’, however, will mark both G-Dragon and Daesung’s first move to talk publicly about their scandals.
G-Dragon placed 3rd in “real estate tycoon in the entertainment industry”.
On the TV show ‘eNews – Lists Revealed‘ on the cable channel tvN (broadcasted on the 7th), they looked at the homes, price, living conditions, interior and the neighbors of celebrities.
Not only is his apartment equipped with the latest technology and design and has an anonymous postal service, it also has one of the best views; being able to see Seogang bridge, Mapo-bridge, Kangbyeon road, and Yeoyi-do just outside the window of the apartment.
On the February 7th episode of SBS‘s ‘Strong Heart‘, Dal Shabet member Subin shared a story about the first time she met idol group Big Bang.
Subin who was previously an extra in Taeyang‘s “I Need A Girl” MV played the role of a seductive female.
“There was this bright light on one side of the set, so I looked over and lo and behold, Big Bang’s Taeyang was over there,” she said. “I kicked myself for not trying harder that morning.”
After 4 months of no activities, GD conducted an interview with High Cut. Although it was an interview that lasted for about 20 minutes only, when asked skeptical questions, he still answered them positively. His describes this “blank” period as “having deep contemplation” and “having a good time”. And during this period, GD is growing up fast.
Q1: It has been a while. What are you busy with these days?
GD: I’ve been busy preparing for the new album so I don’t have time for other things. I spend most of my time in the studio and seldom go out.
Q2: I see that you have new tattoos on your fingers. Did you get them during your rest period?
GD: No, these are actually not real tattoos. I just got them yesterday to prepare for the cover of the new album. In fact, I’m not sure whether I’ll get real tattoos again in the future. I want to, but people asked me not, so I just got these.
Q3: Because of everything that happened, you suddenly had a “blank” period. Did you use this time for self-reflection?
GD: I haven’t had a rest ever since I debuted. Although it isn’t my original intention, I was able to look back during this rest period. I know it doesn’t sound nice that I was only able to reflect because something bad happened. However, if you look at it from another perspective, it was a really meaningful period for me since I had a lot of time to reflect on myself. It was just like having some good time with myself.
Big Bang member G-Dragon showed off many facets to his facial expressions for the recent photo shoot for ‘High Cut’. Whether he is looking lovable holding a huge teddy bear or holds a dragon above his head for the year of the dragon, or is surrounded by sexy female models looking taken aback, G-Dragon’s presence shined through.
G-Dragon proved why he is referred to as a fashion icon utilizing various accessories in stylish ways.
During the interview that followed the photo shoot, G-Dragon commented regarding Big Bang’s activities in 2012, “I think we need to work harder than ever with the feeling of repaying grace.”
Big Bang’s G-Dragon appeared as a cameo in the music video for “When I Can’t Sing.” It appears that the clothes that G-Dragon is wearing in the brief scene are actually women’s clothes!
Earlier this morning, Big Bang was spotted at the Kimpo International Airport on their way to Japan for the “15th Anniversary YG Family Concert.” A photographer for a local media snapped a photo of G-Dragon as he was walking towards the gate. In the photo, G-Dragon is holding his passport by his face in order to avoid the camera flashes. What’s interesting about the photo is the fan letter inside his passport. Despite his hectic schedule and craze surrounding him, he still remembered to take his fan letters with him on the road.
G-Dragon‘s fashion sense has achieved iconic status in Korea, and it’s finally starting to make waves in international fashion communities.
Recently, Singapore’s largest daily newspaper ‘The Straits Times‘ published an article listing the top 10 ‘Men of Style‘. The author explained that G-Dragon is “…a fashion chameleon who has experimented with looks from Goth to Preppy. He is also a trendsetter in his own right: When he dyed his hair platinum blonde for his album in 2009, newspaper reports claimed that the style became one of the most sought-after looks in South Korea that year.”
They continued, “His fashion clout has turned him into an endorsement magnet in his home country. He currently has 10 deals with brands such as apparel label Bean Pole and outdoor equipment brand The North Face.”
The magazine then went on to describe his style as, “Roguish chic. But no matter what he dons, he pulls it all off effortlessly.”
Big Bang‘s Taeyang recently sat down for an interview with Star News and discussed the infinite trust he has in his members, as well as the strong bond between them.
He began, “We went through a lot of obstacles this year, but that has made our friendship that much stronger.”
Taeyang’s already known to be the best friend of G-Dragon, having joined YG Entertainment together when they were just little kids. Taeyang expressed, “As a friend, I was upset about what happened to Jiyong. Jiyong will always be a friend that is closer than family to me. Even if worse things were to happen, I’ll never be able to let go of his hand. I believe that this goes the same for Jiyong. To me, Jiyong is a friend that I’ll be with forever.”
In October, a Twitter post that he had made became the source of controversy once G-Dragon’s marijuana case broke out. For the first time, he opened up by stating, “What I wrote had nothing to do with Jiyong at all. It was just my thoughts on the world. It made me really upset that my words were being misunderstood like that.”
