Editor’s note: The following is an opinion piece that does not represent the views of Soompi as a whole.
G-Dragon recently stated this at a press conference of “Big Big ALIVE Galaxy Tour: The Final”: “I tend to listen to music from different genres for longer period of time than I do with easy-to-consume K-pop that’s more monolithic in genre. I wish K-Pop would stop following popular trends so hastily and go back to its roots, where it was producing memories as well as music. I feel like the music industry in Korea is more restricted in its variety than that of other countries.”
Wait hold on a minute here, he actually said “I wish K-Pop would stop following popular trends so hastily and go back to its roots, where it was producing memories as well as music.” WTF??
Hypocrisy I tell you! In case you want to disagree here is the definition: “Hypocrisy is the state of promoting or administering virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that one does not actually have and is also guilty of violating.”
lightningstix knows that he is going to get flamed so he will spell this out for you. G-Dragon is being a hypocrite by promoting the principle that “K-Pop should stop following popular trends so hastily” although he has been guilty of violating that principle.
What is lightningstix talking about?
Remember Heartbreaker and Flo Rida?
Or Lies and FreeTEMPO – Sky High?
Now lightningstix isn’t going to go that far and say that G-Dragon has plagiarized other artists. But, you can’t deny the fact that he was probably influenced by the music or was at least “following a trend.” Sure, it’s in G-Dragon’s right to say whatever he wants to. But, one should try to avoid being a hypocrite! lightningstix actually enjoys G-Dragon’s music but, does not appreciate the fact that G-Dragon is trying to act like something he is not, something outside of K-Pop.
Agree or disagree with lightningstix? Let him know!
