G-Dragon’s family members recently shared their thoughts on what kind of person the iconic star was to them. This was during his incredibly successful “G-Dragon 2017 World Tour: Act III, M.O.T.T.E.” concert at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on June 10.
“He’s a son who never says no and always says yes. He is hope.” -G-Dragon’s father
“He is my best son,” said G-Dragon’s mother.
His older sister then added, “He’s usually brusque but once he drinks, he becomes a chatterbox.”
In less than a week since BIGBANG’s leader, G-Dragon, made his solo comeback with his self-titled album, “Kwon Ji-Yong” with the song “Untitled, 2014,” it has consistently ruled the charts even making it his third song to reach the Billboard 200 album chart alongside “One of a Kind” in 2012 and “Coup D’etat, Pt.1” in 2013.
His fourth solo album also topped the Billboard’s World Albums and Heatseekers Albums charts. Billboard also reported that G-Dragon’s ‘Kwon Ji Yong just earned his best U.S. sales week yet in just one day!
Currently, “Untitled, 2014” music video has over 13 million views on YouTube and has continued to reign the charts achieving 19 perfect all-kills since its release on June 8, 2017. The album has also sold out over a million copies on its first day in China and 4,000 copies in US!
Kwon Ji-Yong album includes five songs: Middle Fingers Up, Act I (Bullshit), Act II (Super Star), Act III (Untitled, 2014) and Divina Commedia. He stated his album reflects the difference between Kwon Ji Yong in real life and the glamorous life of the super star K-Pop icon, G-Dragon.
G-Dragon recently opened up to his fans, especially to the 40,000 people who attended his recent concert in Seoul.
“Hello everyone, this is Kwon Ji Yong. My album came out a few days ago, and I heard it’s No. 1 on various sites. The truth is that many things have happened while I was preparing for this album, so I was mentally and physically exhausted. It was nice to hear such good news. It’s thanks to all of you that I’m able to have a concert again, so I want to thank you once again.”
“You are watching my first concert as human being Kwon Ji Yong. It could be my first and last. Because I’ve been known to the public as G-Dragon for a long time, I became curious about my real self, Kwon Ji Yong. The point of this concert is to show a side to myself that is much less flashy than my usual self. G-Dragon is a part of me, but I think he’s a singer with a very flamboyant and exaggerated image. The time I spent preparing for this album was a valuable opportunity for me to find out things about myself that I hadn’t known or had forgotten about.”
G-Dragon 2017 World Tour: Act III, M.O.T.T.E. special guests included CL whom G-Dragon performed “The Leaders” with much energy. IU also attended and performed “Palette” and “Missing You” on stage with him!
Celebrities were also spotted during his concert including his fellow BIGBANG members, Daesung and Taeyang, as well as fellow label-mate from YG Entertainment, Sandara Park. He revealed this would be his last concert before he enlists in the mandatory military service next year.
