On July 25, an international pop music mega-star will swoop down upon American Airlines Arena. He’s sold millions of albums and drawn countless screaming fans to his side, and it’s likely you’ve never even heard of him. His name is G-Dragon, and he’s the most popular singer in South Korea.
A representative from YG Entertainment had stated they will be collaborating with China’s biggest game publisher company for a mobile app game called ‘We Moba’. The endorser for the game will be YG Entertainment’s BIGBANG.
The news fans are most curious about– how are Big Bang’s comeback preparations going?
Yang Hyun Suk: Big Bang said they will release an album this summer. I’m waiting for them to make good music like other fans. YGE doesn’t set a deadline and force artists to make albums like other companies do. Today, around 4AM, when I left the office, GD was working hard writing songs. I will just wait and support him until good music comes out.
On March 26, BIG BANG’s G-Dragon made a surprise appearance at the preview exhibit for StoryOn’s “Art Star Korea” held at Garosugil in Seoul. It was in order to support one of the contestants on the survival show who is also a good friend and the visual director at JYP Entertainment.
BIGBANG’s member G-DRAGON received “Most Popular Korean & Japanese Artist Award” at QQ Music Awards held by QQ Music, China’s biggest music-streaming website.
G-DRAGON proved his high popularity in China, by receiving “Most Popular Korean and Japanese Artist Award” at QQ Music Awards held on the 27 this month at Shenzhen, China. Chinese top stars including Jay Chou, JJ Lin, and Jolin Tsai attended the awards and G-DRAGON expressed his gratitude to fans through VCR, as he could not stand on the stage of the awards because of another schedule.
G-DRAGON was selected as the winner of “Most Popular Korean and Japanese Artist Award”, through vote by Chinese Internet users. The vote was carried out from February 28 to March 26 and G-DRAGON won 20,205,786 votes and beat Keun Suk Jang, Girls’ Generation, EXO, as well as Japanese girl group AKB48, to be honored as the awardee.
G-DRAGON gave a lot of performances in and out of the country with his second full-length album “COUP D’ETAT” last year, and has been enjoying great popularity in the Chinese region as well.
Meanwhile, G-DRAGON is now committed to the works on BIGBANG’s new album that will be released this year, two years after BIGBANG’s fifth mini album “ALIVE” released in 2012.
