BIGBANG's Seungri has revealed some interesting details about fellow member, G-Dragon's income. The 27-year-old South Korean singer shared that the boy band leader makes a hundred times more than he does.
During an episode of SBS' Night of Real Entertainment, Seungri talked about the businesses that he owns. He said: "I'm currently involved in businesses from a ramen chain and a cosmetics line to a manpower business. I've invested in biotech and nanotech, and I'm in the process of developing masks that protect people from yellow dust."
Adding on, Seungri said that G-Dragon makes a hundred times more than he does, when he was asked about his income. He stated: "He's not running any businesses, but he has a lot of money."
BIGBANG is one of the most successful Asian music groups of all time. The five members - G-Dragon, T.O.P, Taeyang, Daesung and Seungri, has enthralled the Korean music world since their first performance in Seoul on 19 August 2006.
Though G-Dragon is more popular and rich than the other members, he is known to be mature and warm. During an interview with OSEN in 2013, YG Entertainment's CEO Yang Hyun Suk gushed about the rapper whose real name is Kwon Ji-yong.
"I want to say that out of everyone in the YG Family, the member who I treasure and love the most is G-Dragon," he said.
"The reason is because among the Big Bang members, G-Dragon was recruited into YGE at the earliest age of 13 years old and we built up a relationship for over ten years. G-Dragon is the artist who most frequently comes to the YGE building and recording studio, so he is the one who gets to speak with me the most. The artists who I'm really close with are G-Dragon and 1TYM member turned YGE's main producer Teddy," he added.
Yang Hyun Suk continued: "Another reason I like G-Dragon is that unlike his tough charisma and bad boy image on stage, he is the most humble person I know off stage. Just like the photo uploaded on SNS prior to the 'Thank You' broadcast showing G-Dragon lifting up a chair for the staff, even after he became a top star, he is the first one to clean up the mess when producers and sunbaes eat their snacks in the office."
"As an artist, one of G-Dragon's biggest strengths is his creativity. He participated in all of the composition and writing of lyrics for all of Big Bang's songs. His ability to come up with the melody and lyrics immediately after hearing the music is just mind blowing."
"G-Dragon who is known as a fashionista is not only like that on stage, but also over the ten years he came into the office, he never wore the same thing twice. I am impressed with his artistry and consistent effort as a true fashionista," he stated.
