[News] Albums recommended by Big Bang on Naver Music

Big Bang shares their music recommendations on Naver's Musician's Choice:

This is the second album released by N.E.R.D in 2004.

G-Dragon: "I listened to this a lot when I was working on our album (which took about 2 years and 6 months). The album also has sentimental songs. It's the best album I can recommend to our fans because the quality of the songs in it is really good. Also, like Pharrell Williams as a singer and producer. Why? Because whether he's working on his own or with Neptunes, he is still able to show his unique charm.

Excerpt from W-inds' interview on Focus Korea:
It was such a big experience. I could feel his own insistence and confidence while filming the MV and also I noticed his infinite potential on the stage performing together.
He is very polite and such a nice person. On one TV show, I was wondering why he was not getting out of a shop and then I realized he was buying some gifts for us. Last time we went to BIGBANG's live concert and he even invited us to the after party. Of course, we still contact each other, he's such a valued friend.

[Video/News] G-Dragon Bean Pole Shoot Interview on Mnet Wide

Excelling in music, stage performance, and even in fashion, one of Korea’s most versatile artist, Big Bang’s G-Dragon recently interviewed with Mnet Wide News during a CF shoot for popular Korean clothing brand, Bean Pole.

Unlike his usual flashy outfits, G-Dragon was dressed head-to-toe in Bean Pole’s All Black concept clothing. However, he accented the look with showy silver accessories and fur boots acknowledging his stance as a style icon.

While overlooking his photos, the star jokingly admitted, “I’m pretty photogenic. I look better in photos than in real life” shyly smiling and showcasing his perfectly pearl-white teeth.

G-Dragon was then asked if he studies fashion separately and he answered, “I do study a bit on my own. I also get a lot of advice from stylists, I also look at style magazines, and shop frequently for clothes. And through many trials and errors, I kind of find my own style“.

Recently, G-Dragon was on the preliminary rounds for Super Star K as a special guest and worked with the contestants as their stylist for the day. He helped transform the contestants’ style so that they could look extra cute or extra handsome.

When asked about his thoughts on international fans holding flash mobs for a YG family concert, specifically a flash mob in London, GD responded, “I’m really glad. It’s really hard to become someone’s fan with music alone. But through this, I found hope and my desire is to eventually go over and perform our music.”

Despite the fact that Cho In Sung  has been enlisted in the army since last May, he is still popular among the pregnant women so he ranks 2nd(26%). He is followed by Big Bang's G-Dragon(3rd, 13%) and Cha Seung Won (4th, 6%).

For the section of the female artists, Kim Tae Hee got the most votes (38%, 152 votes). The staff of the fair explained that the results of the poll shows the  mothers-to-be prefer their kids to carry a warm image rather than a clever one.

[News] G-Dragon and Kiko Mizuhara’s dating rumors resurface

Big Bang’s G-Dragon (Kwon Ji Yong, 22) and Japanese American model Kiko Mizuhara (21) are under the spotlight once more. Last summer, YG Entertainment denied rumors that G-Dragon was dating Kiko Mizuhara, stating "they are close friends."

However, a never-before-seen photo of G-Dragon and Kiko Mizuhara at an amusement park has fans questioning their relationship. Judging from G-Dragon's blonde hair, many are speculating that this photo was taken around Big Bang's last promotion period.

Netizens commented, “They’re just close,” “No way, I don’t believe this,” and “How many times have they been captured together…” While the photo doesn't exactly say anything, it has brought a renewed interest in the two, especially now that so many celebrities are opening up about their relationships.

Oska once published a magazine called ‘the latest Hallyu Star Special- Big Bang’ but the photos that they used had not been authorized by YGE before.

The lawyer of Big Bang said, ‘ the publishing company has admitted that they had used the photos without prior authorization. Moreover, the revenue that the magazine gained has been offset by the compensation that it has to pay.’

A staff of Okra said, ‘ we have not explicitly said that we have reached a compromise.’
