BIGBANG’s G-Dragon draws 260,000 fans during Japanese tour


SEOUL, Sept. 21 (Yonhap) — BIGBANG’s G-Dragon finished a three-city Japanese tour, drawing in a total crowd of 260,000, according to his agency Thursday.

The singer-rapper wrapped up the Japanese leg of his 29-city world tour Wednesday at the Tokyo Dome in the Japanese capital, according to YG Entertainment. The combined audience at the five concerts reached 260,000, according to the company.

G-Dragon released his fourth solo album “Kwon Ji Yong” in June and stormed major music charts in South Korea upon its release. The record, named after his real name, at one point conquered Apple’s iTunes album charts in 39 countries upon its release.

“In this album, I wanted to speak about Kwon Ji-yong, as a person, a normal person and not the G-Dragon persona. Frankly, it was quite hard and was worrisome,” the singer was quoted as explaining to his Japanese fans on the production process of “Kwon Ji Yong.”

G-Dragon added: “But the worries vanish when I get up on stage and sing for all of you. My heart becomes full of joy.”

“Kwon Ji Yong” is scheduled to be released in Japan on Nov. 1, while BIGBANG also plans to hold a tour in the country that month.
