  • Jimmy Xu

    The king of Kpop.

  • Yang Hongseok-kie

    Didn’t he recently gain weight? My friend said something like that

  • Chae Lyn

    Fact : He’s the King of Kpop.

  • Minari

    the fans commented on some pictures of him from the army, that he looks like he gained some weight and he looks healthy, but there is no official update on his weight

    anyway, I don’t think these official weights are always right because ppl can gain 1 kg or lose 1 kg from week to week depending on different factors
    but companies usually list these ‘official weights’ so yeah, that is…

  • Minari

    I actually think that’s right 😀

  • Josie Quinn


  • khouloud zaidi

    G-DRAGON is bron to be THE KING OF KPOP

  • nice_Haru27

    I know his songs first before i know that person is GD. Then i know bit of his character through several variety show. He is quite shy but the most important is his politeness to all people.. He is a great guy with a great manner. So maybe some “bad boy” looking impressions is actually “good boy” inside. Hahahah..

  • ANOTHER hard BTS stan

    No really, thats a fact.
    GD is the king of Kpop
    BoA is the Queen of kpop

  • Yang Hongseok-kie

    oh ok thank you. weight is very confusing.

  • Yang Hongseok-kie


  • Alok Singh

  • osheen

    the 156 people… wow are you blind

  • Heléne G Börjesson

    Oh hes the same hight as me.. 177cm , 5,10 🙂

  • Hunter Heather

    in reality he’s way shorter than you lmao

  • Heléne G Börjesson

    Really? So hes short? 🙂

  • Hunter Heather

    Yeah, he’s a bit short for a guy. He’s about 168 cm in real life. All Big Bang members are actually shorter in real life, their official heights are sorta exaggerated. It’s a company thing to make their idols look more appealing 🙂
