Big Bang didn’t fail to impress with their unique and eye-catching fashion on April 14th as they set off for Vietnam, where over 2000 fans awaited them at the airport. All the cameras were especially flash-ready as they focused on what ‘King of Fashion’ G-Dragon would be wearing next. Known for his shocking and eclectic style, he stunned fans with a more everyday outfit. Sporting a casual layered look, G-Dragon proved that he could still be a fashionista with simple pieces. But of course, he still made to sure to pop with an added touch of his fiery red leather jacket!
This is a great look, not just for jet setting, but for being a combo of essential pieces that all guys should have in their wardrobes. All the different pieces and layers can be mixed-and-matched. Versatility, fashion, and comfort- all in one!
Steal G-Dragon’s hip airport fashion with these tips:

Building up layers: G-Dragon Style 101. It’s fool-proof! Wherever you decide to stop in the ‘layer spectrum’, the outfit will still look complete. Layer 1: simple tank or tee! G-Dragon wears a low-scoop neck, striped tank here. Layer 2: plaid button-up shirt! Leave it open for a casual, hipster feel like G-Dragon does. Layer 3: leather jacket! G-Dragon goes bold with a bright red jacket, but they can get expensive and hard to find. A black leather jacket or vest will do!
To finish off G-Dragon’s airport outfit, put on some ripped jeans that come up higher on the ankle (or cuffed regular jeans), thick black belt with decorative buckle, comfy black sneakers (with a hint of your socks on display), and cheetah-print sunglasses. Now that you have the tips to ‘grab the look’… class dismissed!

Tell us what you think! Was G-Dragon dressed to impress for Vietnam? Ladies, would you like this look on your man?

Big Bang, who made waves earlier this year with their Korean mini-album, is set to embark on a large-scale Japanese tour that is expected to pull in approximately 150,000 people and gross over 31.5 billion Won (~$27 million USD).
On May 17th, Big Bang will launch their tour, which will be take place in major Japanese cities such as Nagoya, Yokohama, Osaka, Saitama, and Fukoka, for a total of 13 shows. Each show will be playing to an audience of over 10,000 people, resulting in a total audience of over 150,000.
The tour was originally set for only 10 shows, but it was increased to 13 after pre-sales for the tickets, which were initially exclusive for fan club members, sold out completely. The competition for the tickets are to a point that there are currently an increase in the number of scalpers who are reselling the tickets online at a large price. Overall, the tour is expected to gross over $27 million just through ticket sales, and is expected to make extensive additional earnings through various merchandise and memorabilia.
Following the Japan tour, Big Bang will kick off a large-scale world tour, which is expected to span over 16 countries and 25 cities across Asia, Europe, and the Americas. Anticipation for this tour is extremely high, as Big Bang’s promotional visits to Taiwan and Vietnam earlier this year resulted in a huge turnout of fans at the airport.

On April 24th at 4PM KST, YG Entertainment revealed that Big Bang’s photo shoot taken by Terry Richardson will be revealed through Big Bang’s official fan club and YG’s official application.
Terry Richardson sparked curiosity when he recently posted a picture that he took with Big Bang on his homepage, and now the full photo shoot will be officially released.
He’s known for photographing many famous stars including Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Jay-Z, Brad Pitt, and David Beckham. Not only does he take photos for celebrities, but he has also done fashion pictorials for brands like Gucci, Sisley, and Diesel, giving him international fame as a fresh fashion and cultural icon.
This isn’t the first time Big Bang has worked with the famed photographer. Big Bang’s 2009 pictorial forArena, in which he perfectly captured Big Bang’s sexy charm and received a lot of praise for his work, was also taken by Terry Richardson.
At the Arena photo shoot, Terry Richardson complimented Big Bang saying, “I don’t think I can forget Big Bang’s innocence.“ Terry Richardson is known for not inviting just anyone into his studio, but he personally invited Big Bang to his private studio in New York. It is said that when Big Bang came to America to film their music videos for “Blue” and “Bad Boy” that the boys and Terry Richardson worked together on the shoot like they were friends. It might be because they are more familiar with each other, but this time around, Richardson was able to capture Big Bang’s natural image.

On April 20th, Big Bang made an appearance as a guest on SBS’s ‘Go Show‘ and leader G-Dragontalked about his exotic hairstyle, which fans have called the ‘seaweed’ hairstyle.
As ‘Go Show”s MC Go Hyun Jung asked G-Dragon how he felt about his new hairstyle becoming a hot issue, the trendmaker answered, “My hairstyle has both pros and cons. It looks really fancy and cool on stage, but all the hair kept on getting inside my mouth during concerts.”
He continued, “But I found a solution to this problem. Now when I rap, I lean my head slightly to the right so that my hair doesn’t get in the way. Also, sometimes when I hit my hair, it returns back to its original position!”
G-Dragon’s hairstyle has been nicknamed the ‘seaweed’ hairstyle and has been parodied by various comedians in different comedy and variety programs.
On March 24th, comedian Ahn Young Mi copied the hairstyle on tvN’s ‘Comedy Big League‘. Also, comedian Yang Se Hyung dressed up as G-Dragon with the seaweed hair on the April 3rd episode of SBS’s ‘Strong Heart‘. On the same show, comedian Boom brought in actual seaweed to show a hilarious parody of the singer as well!
Also, even though not shown on the ‘Go Show’, national MC Yoo Jae Suk seems to have wanted the same hairstyle as G-Dragon, as he transformed into ‘G-Drasuk’ on SBS’s ‘Running Man‘!

Big Bang‘s maknae Seungri recently made an attempt to confess his hidden love for actress Go Hyun Jung.

The third set of guests to appear on the ‘Go Show’, were none other than the group Big Bang. During the episode, Seungri showed off his experiences as an actor after making special appearances in the movie ‘Why are You at Our House‘ and the drama ‘Light and Shadow‘.

Seungri had also prepared a special scenerio to act out during this episode. With the help from actress Go Hyun Jung, Seungri parodied the popular drama ‘Romance’, which was a love story between a student and his teacher. However, unlike the serious Seungri, Go Hyun Jung acted out a comedy between a teacher and her rebellious student.

Disappointed by the way his scenerio had turned out, Seungri was given another chance to do it exactly the way he had planned to. His last phrase, especially, had left the entire studio bursting with laughter.

Check out the hilarous program below, Seungri’s clips begins at about 31:00
