Is BIGBANG's G Dragon dating former After School member Lee Joo Yeon? Well, the Internet was abuzz with these rumours. It all began with a video published on a social app called "Kwai" that allows users to dub smash.
What caught the attention of many was a hilarious video of Dragon and Joo Yeon lip-syncing the lines of SBS's variety show "Oh! My Baby." The duo's amazing vibe they shared on the video made netizens think that there is something brewing between the two. However, Joo Yeon agency Better Ent soon intervened and clarified that they are merely good friends and that there is no special bonding between them.
Dragon is currently focusing on his solo career. Up next on his kitty is the Japanese version of Kwon Ji Yong. The Korean version kickstarted a controversy on whether USB can be accepted as a full-fledged album. Recently, the Korea Music Content Industry Association—that operates Gaon charts— announced that the USB cannot technically be acknowledged as an album. Despite the crisis, the album topped charts across the globe breaking many records.
Following the release of Kwon Ji Yong's Japanese version, Dragon will also hold BigBang Japan Dome Tour 2017 - Last Dance for the fifth year in a row along with rest of the members. The tour will be held at 13 venues, including Fukuoka, Nagoya, Osaka and Tokyo, with a total audience of 646,000.
Meanwhile, local dailies in Japan recently claimed that Dragon is all set to enlist in the army and has started the preparations.
