G-Dragon named among influential stars
The web magazine selects 100 celebrities in various fields from music to fashion every year for its Hypebeast 100 series, and G-Dragon was the only Korean figure who made the list.
“If you’re at all familiar with K-Pop, G-Dragon is the first name that comes to mind,” the magazine wrote.
This is not the first time G-Dragon has made the Hypebeast list. His name was included in 2014, along with Samsung Chairman Lee Kun-hee.
Other celebrities who made the list this year include Kanye West, Pharrell Williams and Rihanna.
G-Dragon has been exerting his influence not only in music but in fashion as well. The 28-year-old singer regularly visits the fashion shows of Karl Lagerfeld, the creative director for luxury fashion brand Chanel.
