G-Dragon and Seungri’s Interview on “Anan” Magazine
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.

Why Se7en inspected the phones of G-Dragon and Taeyang
Singer Se7en appeared on KBS 2TV's "All-Night Variety Nocturnal" on Sep. 13. Se7en suggested that they donate their blood for this episode and so the singer and the program's five MCs took a time of self-reflection before extracting their blood.
Se7en said there's nothing for him to reflect on because he hasn't done anything bad. He rather proposed that they share good deeds they have done. However, if the others did not agree it was good deed, the person must eat garlic rice cake as a penalty.
MCs Jang Hang-jun, Sin Dong-yeob and Yun Jong-sin ended up eating the rice cakes first as the other cast would not recognize their stories as good deeds.
Se7en was less confident, saying he hadn't done a good thing either. Then Gill mentioned a text message incident involving Se7en and G-Dragon.
Se7en then opened up about a story going back years when he was a trainee in his middle school years and Big Bang members G-Dragon and Taeyang were in elementary school. Se7en said that as their senior, whenever he met them, he would inspect their cell phones to check on contacts and text messages. He said that what he did, checking their schedule and personal relations, was good because he was worried for them.
But MCs Sin and Yun argued it was a bad thing, violating their private lives, to which Se7en quickly acknowledged, "On second thought I guess it wasn't a good thing after all," and picked up a piece of garlic rice cake.
But what he picked was not the garlic kind but a sweet strawberry piece. Se7en beamed, "It's so tasty." Sin said, "That coincidence shows that your cell phone inspection was really out of a good heart."
Despite the heavy rain, 159 people gathered to donate their blood, and 62 of them were diagnosed as adequately fit to give blood.
The MCs and Se7en also took part and Sin and Jang gave their blood. The others who were determined to not be in an ideal state to give blood that day instead wrote a pledge to donate blood some other day when they were medically fit.

G-Dragon’s “Heartbreaker” amongst 20 plagiarized songs list
A total of 20 songs have been swept up in legitimate plagiarism controversies since 2000, and it has recently been revealed by the Committee on Culture, Sports, Tourism, Broadcasting & Communications that the royalties earned by these songs total to $1,724,138 USD.
Jin Sungho of the Committee revealed a series of documents submitted by the Korea Music Copyright Association describing the situation behind royalties received by composers that have plagiarized. According to the document, the court has found a total of 20 songs to be plagiarized, some including MC Mong’s “Letter to You,” Hyori’s “I’m Back” and “Swing,” Lee Seung Ki’s “Mask,” Son Dambi’s “Saturday Night,” Lee Seung Chul’s “Scream,” CNBlue’s “Loner,” and GDragon’s “Heartbreaker.” The problem lies in the fact that royalty payments of nearly $250,000 USD per song were paid without any clear standards, totaling nearly 2 million USD.
Jin Sungho went on to state, “To plagiarize is to steal a creation by someone else. It is unjust for royalties to be paid when songs are found to be plagiarized and/or suspected to be plagiarized. We will be aggressively pressing the government offices to create a guideline on plagiarism in order to protect the rights of music producers.”
