K-pop sensation G-Dragon is teaming up with a professional teenager guitarist on Sunday’s “Inkigayo.”
G-Dragon, who has been coloring the music scene with “CRAYON,” is collaborating with finger-style guitarist Jung Sung-ha for “That XX” on SBS’ music program “Inkigayo” on September 23, YG Entertainment said in a press release Friday.
The 16-year-old guitarist is known as an acoustic guitar virtuoso that shot to fame after receiving massive popularity online through his cover videos of all genres on YouTube. Jung’s official YouTube channel has nearly 540 million views and over 915,000 subscribers.
This is his second collaboration with artists under the management of YG Entertainment, as he sat next to 2NE1 in a project music video for “I LOVE YOU” and “LONELY” last month. The clips later gained rave reviews for his neat and fresh interpretation of the girl group’s melody.
“Watching G-Dragon singing ‘That XX’ in live with Jung’s guitar sound will be something new. G-Dragon and Jung are working with sweat to present the best performance,” a YG official was quoted as saying.
“That XX” is the rapper-singer’s acoustic single off “ONE OF A KIND,” the first mini-album that became available online on September 15.
Last Sunday’s “Inkigayo” featured the first televised performance of G-Dragon’s title tune “CRAYON” and hip-hop track “ONE OF A KIND,” with a special appearance of Big Bang member Taeyang.
