GD's comments @ G-DRAGON 2017 CONCERT: ACT lll M.O.T.T.E
I've recently released my new solo album, and I heard that the album topped various music charts. I'm really happy I heard the good news because I suffered mental and physical hardship while preparing for my comeback. Actually, my solo concert could have been cancelled. Thank you that you supported me a lot, and I could held the concert thanks to you.
I've been performing in front of the public as G-Dragon, and I became curious about Kwon Jiyong one day. That's why I tried to look back on myself while preparing for my new solo album. I've held many concerts, but this is my first concert as Kwon Jiyong. G-Dragon is a very fancy and exaggerated singer, but Kwon Jiyong is not. Through the concert, I wanted to show you what kind of person Kwon Jiyong is, and that's why I tried to make a simple and monotonous stage.
Yeah, not surprisingly, I'm having happy days. Frankly speaking, it’s as if I’m living a dream. Sometimes I'm not even sure it's real or a dream. I'm trying not to forget my first time, and I think everything will be fine because I'm a positive person. I don't know which one you like, but I will try my best both as Kwon Jiyong and as G-Dragon.
It's the first time for us to perform "Palette" together. I felt so sorry that I couldn't perform the song with her when the song was released. Actually, I received a special gift in exchange for being featured as a rapper in the song. She gave me a refrigerator filled with bottles of Soju, and she told me to drink all of them before I will join the army. The bottles are wrapped with my facial pictures, haha.
I've kicked off my solo world tour, and I will visit foreign countries every weekend. So, please excuse me if I won't appear in many music chart shows. Actually, this could be my last world tour because I have to join the army next year. After the military service, I'll be 32-33 years old, and I'm afraid I won't be able to paint my nails.
