Kwon Ji-Yong (Korean: 권지용) (born August 18, 1988), better known by his stage name G-Dragon, is a South Korean singer and songer-writer. A trainee under the record label YG Entertainment for six years, G-Dragon officially debuted as the leader and one of the two rappers for the Korean hip-hop group Big Bang. Since their debut, G-Dragon has involved himself with the production of their albums: he composed and wrote several tracks by himself, including "Lie," "Last Farewell," and "Day by Day." His involvement received both praises and criticisms from critics.During the hiatus of Big Bang, G-Dragon released his debut solo album, Heartbreaker (2009), which went on to become one of the most successful albums of the year, garnering sales of over 100,000 copies. The album sparked major controversies for the artist, including accusations of plagiarism. (wikipedia)
OK, facts known to everyone. My first encounter with his music was last year, but it was from Big Bang. So, I paid little attention... Until...

But I started to follow the story of (in)famous concert with sexual underline. Yes, yes,  Shine A Light concert. I didn't think at the time that something what happened on the scene was inappropriate, since his album had also age restriction. I mean, come on, he's a singer, very sensual in his texts, it's his job to perform. Why just not let it pass? A week ago I finally watched three videos from Heartbreaker. And it haunts me ever since. Not only he can sing, but he got the look^^. Hope the situation will be cleared up, without throwing him to jail. He didn't deserve it.What about 99% of modern r'n'b singers in US, or Europe? They should be burnt to the ground! And hanged. Relax.

Meanwhile, all three videos in chronological order, ending of the previous has a musical intro to the next, very nice indeed. The best video: Heartbreaker. The best song: A Boy.
