Singapore, 27 January 2014 – Pop idol. Fashion icon. Trendsetter. There are many descriptions for the multi-talented South Korean, Kwon Ji Yong or as he is popularly known, G-Dragon. The undisputed fact remains that this singer-songwriter is uniquely one-of-a-kind.
‘GD ONE OF A KIND CONCERT IN 3D’ follows the BIG BANG star on his solo 2013 world tour which was witnessed by 570,000 people worldwide. Spanning 26 shows across 13 cities in 8 countries, this live documentary showcase was filmed dynamically with a total of twenty four 3D cameras to give viewers an experience akin to being at the concert themselves.
Fans of the Seoul-born megastar can immerse themselves in the live performances of his well-known numbers such as ‘Michigo’, ‘Heartbreaker’, ‘One of a Kind’ and ‘Crooked’. Going beyond the performance, viewers will also enjoy backstage footage and in-depth interviews, showcasing a rarely-seen intimate side of G-Dragon. Other household names who appear in the documentary are his BIG BANG bandmates Taeyang, T.O.P, Daesung, Seungri and pop girl group 2NE1.
From a country full of exciting musical talents, G-Dragon sets himself apart by imaginatively recreating himself from time to time. From being a suave superhero in one music video to a cartoon villain in the next, G-Dragon never rests on his laurels when it comes to seeking innovative methods in expressing his musical creativity.
One such example is his conceptualization of the music video for his hit single ‘Who You?’. For this, G-Dragon collaborated with the people that mean most to him – his adoring fans. The footage of G-Dragon performing the song within a transparent glass box was collated from videos recorded by 1,000 fans surrounding the box. This is one of the many ways that G-Dragon stays ahead of the fast-moving Korean popular music industry.
It is somewhat difficult to describe the style of G-Dragon’s music, seeing that it ranges from pop to hip-hop to electronic with a significant dose of R&B influence. Perhaps there should not be a specific genre to label G-Dragon with, seeing that he is truly one-of-a-kind.
