G-Dragon is not afraid of rumors and produced the best-selling album
BIGBANG leader G-Dragon is the first one who released the solo album in their group. Immediately after his first album ‘Heart Breaker’ was released, 70,000 copies were sold in just 10 days. The first debuted song of the same name of his album secured the first place in ‘M.net’ music chart 2 weeks in a row and when he went to the very well-received music program SBS ‘ Inkigayo’ to perform, the watching rate climbed to 17.35% which was the highest rate in the previous 5 years. You can see how popular the G-Dragon was by this evidence.
Although ‘Heart Breaker’ was accused of copying from ‘ Right Round’ of Flo Rida and ‘Butterfly’ was said to be similar to ‘She’s Electric’ of ‘ the British band’ Oasis while ‘Hello’ was said to look very alike with ‘ Solo’ of the Korean band Dynamic Duo, G-Dragon still defended his own originality. His fans also supported him by buying his albums. Rumours are flying all around but nothing can change his status in the hearts of his fans.
Our true and sentimental G-Dragon once posted a self- taken photo showing him being covered by a cap on his blog. The T-shirt that he was wearing had the sentence ‘I need a girl’. He seemed to be looking for a girlfriend but his fans did not show any signs of jealousy but even discussed this heatly on the Net. That was why G-Dragon said “My VIPs are really cute.” (VIP is the title that BIGBANG call their fans.)
