On March 26, BIG BANG’s G-Dragon made a surprise appearance at the preview exhibit for StoryOn’s “Art Star Korea” held at Garosugil in Seoul. It was in order to support one of the contestants on the survival show who is also a good friend and the visual director at JYP Entertainment.
G-Dragon appeared at the exhibit with Taeyang. G-Dragon and Taeyang posed standing in front of Seo Woo Tak’s art piece titled, “QUEEN.” He was dressed in a denim-on-denim outfit displaying his sense of fashion as a representative celebrity fashionista. Taeyang was dressed in casual yet chic attire also displaying his distinctive fashion sense.
As reported by a Korean media outlet, G-Dragon and Seo Woo Tak are close friends. Although G-Dragon is signed under YG and Seo Woo Tak works for JYP, they formed a close bond as artists. It has been said they both enjoy art and share their ideas in order to help each other grow and improve artistically.
Seo Woo Tak appeared in G-Dragon’s “One Of A Kind” music video and also appeared in CL’s “Bad Girl” music video after being introduced by G-Dragon.
