G-Dragon became a member of "Little Roo'ra" when he was 5 years old and became a rapper in 2001, with hiphop-style baggy pants and tilted baseball cap. He was noticed by Yang Hyun Suk of Seotaji and the Boys, and became a trainee of YG Entertainment. For the next 6 years, he trained in song and dance. His goal was to be a singer like Jinusean. As shown in Big Bang Real Documentary in 2006, G-Dragon became part of Big Bang with Tae Yang, TOP, Daesung and Seungri. In August of 2006, Big Bang successfully debuted and became a top K-pop group. G-Dragon is known as the ‘genius idol’ among the fans - recognized as a style icon, and a master of lyric-making, composing and producing. Around May 2007, he had his two tattoos "Moderato" and "Vita Dolce" by the motorcross rider, Carey Heart, and he also has another tattoo that are lyrics from a song: "Too fast to live, too young to die."G-Dragon had his stage name from his own birth name.

With the release 2NE1’s ‘Fire’ MV, many fans pointed out the cameo appearance of Big Bang member GDragon.

There were 2 versions to the MV revealed on 6th May – space and street version, which got 1.5 and 1 million views on GomTV as of 9th May. While on other portal sites, the MVs were said to have attracted more than 2.5 milion views.

With that many netizens and fans caught the 2 seconds cameo apperance of Big Bang GDragon for the street version of the MV, doing his comical act behind member Gong MinJi.

But YG Entertainment said, “We did not know of GDragon’s cameo comic act behind member Gong MinJi for the street version of the MV as pointed out by Big Bang fans. It was because he was behind Gong MinJi and his appearance was so short.”

“But with the release of the MV online, Big Bang fans were fast to spot him in the MV. And it quickly became a topic amongst netizens and fans on the internet.”

The YG representative said, “GDragon went to the filming spot for the MV filming to give support to the 2NE1 members whom he is close to. And with no earlier plans for it, he went directly for a cameo appearance to show support to 2NE1.”.

Big Bang’s G-Dragon (Real Name Kwon JiYong), who left to vacation in Europe recently, is enjoying the vacation to the fullest and having a happy time.

YG Entertainment said in a phone call with Newsen on the 7th, “Starting from the UK and going around Europe, G-Dragon is taking a break. We have received word that he is doing very well. We have not set a precise date for him to come back to Korea, but at the earliest, he could come back this weekend.”

G-Dragon left for Europe a while ago. Yang Hyun Seok has recently revealed through the official homepage that G-Dragon had spent day-to-day being busy after Big Bang’s debut, and as a result of that, his mind was worn out, and the solo album which was projected to be in April was postponed. Yang was also worried because G-Dragon had symptoms that were similar to depression indicating that he was in a sort of slump.

However, YG Entertainment said, “He was back to his normal self before he went to Europe,” and “Although he may be somewhat fatigued, his mind and body has gotten better.”

On the internet, a picture of G-Dragon having a joyful time in Europe attracted a lot of attention.

Also, YG Entertainment asserts that “G-Dragon is keeping up his good condition to the point that fans will not have to worry,” and “In the future as well, we ask for lots of encouragement.”

"We all have different personalities so I want to learn a lot, but my personality is the complete opposite of Taeyang's. I'm more indifferent or straightforward at times while Taeyang nicely and kindly comforts people. I want to have that kind of inner warmth that Taeyang has." (which other member he wants to learn from)

[i|"I break out of conforming to what people want. Even though it might look funny to other people, I try to play up my own individuality. I try new styles a lot and I think people are fascinated by them so they compliment me."[/i] (on his nicknames for how he dresses well/secret to being stylish)

"Sometimes they pull out our hair and then run to pick it up. Also when we get into our car to get to schedules and stuff they throw gifts at us and it hurts a lot when we get hit by them. One person even came up to our apartment and put their ear on our door trying to eavesdrop. If they would give us a bit more privacy that'd be good."(on what he wants fans to stop doing or less of)

"G-Dragon emphasized that he chose Ivy as his ideal girl because he's a fan of hers. He said, "I've seen her dance once up close and rather than just simply saying that she dances good, I was surprised at how she made the feel of the dance come alive," and answered, "My ideal girl is actually a stylish girl."" (on his ideal celebrity girl with Newsen 2006)

"Leader G-Dragon (Kwon Ji-yong)'s ideal girl is a stylish girl. G-dragon has strong sences in style within the group so whenever a girl's style catches his eyes first. With that, he added

"I don't go for looks. I want someone who understands me and have a lot in common. I don't look at outside appearance but if I look at the person I like, they seem to be pretty." (laughs) (on his ideal girl with OSEN 2006)
