G-DRAGON and Seungri’s AnAn Magazine interviews

Criticisms will help me in my development

The person who determines BIGBANG’s music is their leader, G-Dragon~
G-Dragon: We want to release a new album in Korea this November so I’m preparing for it. However, it feels like climbing a new mountain. Lately, “Electropop” is very popular in Korea and I think that we have to break away from this. We want to make a different type of music that will make people reminisce about the past and feel warm. This is the kind of mountain we definitely want to climb.

We heard that his talent as a producer is not only known in Korea but also in other countries~
G-Dragon: To be honest, it is more interesting to produce for myself than to produce for other people. This is because I have a grasp on everything I’m thinking and what I like. During my solo work last year, I was able to express everything I wanted to. But at the same time, I realized that there are a lot of “Anti G-Dragon”. But I think that their criticisms will help me develop.

I’m learning a new sense of values now at the university that is not in the entertainment world

V.I, who has gentle features and talks cheerfully is gradually becoming popular in Japan~
Seungri: I’m actually surprised at myself because I got to speak Japanese fluently so quickly! (Laughs) I always hear that BIGBANG is popular from people in the entertainment world. But is it true!? Our company’s staff told me that it’s because I’m so focused on speaking Japanese. This is the reason why I’m studying so hard.

V.I still goes to the university even if he’s busy~
Seungri: I have always been surrounded by adults in the entertainment world ever since I was young. I spent most of my life there. But when I started going to the university this spring, I began to meet people who are within the same generation (age group) and I got exposed to different kinds of points of view. I’m now learning a new sense of values from them. School days are just so wonderful. They’re something that money can’t buy. Also, I got a driver’s license. I like listening to music while driving. My dream is to have a car made by a famous designer especially for V.I.
