Scandals and Controversies Surrounding BIGBANG’s Leader G-Dragon

Dating Scandals

Big Bang’s G-Dragon is definitely one of the most famous Korean celebrities. He is a great singer, rapper, dancer, actor, and TV personality. But because of his fame, many people tend to spread rumors about him. He has definitely gone through a lot of scandals with various female celebrities both from South Korea and abroad.

Ahn So-hee

HeeDragon erupted from the ‘WonderBang’ era back in 2007 when BIGBANG and Wonder Girls had frequent collaborations on-stage starting with the “Lies” and “Tell Me” medley. There were countless of ships including T.O.P x Yoobin and Sunye x Taeyang. While none of them gained much steam, HeeDragon became one of GD’s oldest dating rumors, with longtime VIPs swearing that their relationship was an “open secret”, thanks to matching outfits and accessories, as well as the time GD allegedly gave SoHee a pink laptop which was inscribed with his initials.

Kiko Mizuhara

Rumors of #Jiko surfaced in 2010, and in the five or so years before the unofficial “ending” of their on-again, off-again relationship (we say unofficial because both parties strongly denied the rumors), G-Dragon and model Kiko Mizuhara were spotted hanging out on many, many occasions and in many different countries. From going to amusement parks, to attending GD’s concert, to holidaying together, to partying with their friend groups, to displaying skinship in public, it was impossible for fans to dismiss the possibility that they were dating.

Nana Komatsu

Although they had met each other at a photoshoot back in early 2016, rumors of G-Dragon and Japanese model Nana Komatsu only surfaced in May that year after his private Instagram was hacked, and photos of Nana and GD hanging out were leaked. Their “relationship” was short-lived, however, as it was soon revealed that Nana was dating a Japanese actor.

Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon


Mostly based on Instagram activity and social media similarities, the Taeyeon x G-Dragon shipping has to be the most unrealistic of the lot. Needless to say, both SM Entertainment and YG Entertainment quickly debunked the rumors which started after Jiko’s demise and Taeyeon x Baekhyun’s actual break-up back in 2015.



Another far-fetched rumor that was quickly quelled, the Sulli and G-Dragon pairing started this year after fans spotted the two sporting similar jewellery and riding in first-class seats on the same airline. With regards to YG Entertainment’s clarification, they said, “We personally asked G-Dragon, and he said, as he laughed, that the rumors are false and make no sense.”

Goo Hara


Goo Hara’s friendship with G-Dragon was put under the microscope after photos of their group hangout at Lotte World amusement park, along with idols like Ga In and Sulli, surfaced. This came after she (and the same celebs mentioned earlier) were present at G-Dragon’s PeaceMinusOne fashion exhibit in Paris. While Goo Hara quickly denied all rumors, we imagine their next interaction might have been a tad awkward…



The latest celebrity to be linked with G-Dragon, the pair’s unexpected friendship caused much stir online. Rumors first started circulating when a video of them using the Kwai app was accidentally posted online, which led to netizens digging through and analyzing similar social media posts, showing that GD and Jooyeon were indeed hanging out quite frequently at different locations. With that being said, Jooyeon has since stepped out to deny said rumors, and netizens have stated that Jooyeon was friends with GD’s manager, which explained their close friendship.

Sandara Park

Last but certainly not least, the Daragon ship is definitely the longest sailing one, since 2005 to be exact, even before Dara became a trainee at YG Entertainment. However, the ship was only solidified after GD’s Heartbreaker album after GD and Dara performed “Hello.” In the 12 years since, there have been countless “pieces of evidence” ranging from couple wear-like outfits, teasing social media interactions, suspicious song dedications and even a prank where GD seemingly “kissed” Dara’s head while escorting her to a waiting vehicle after a group dinner. More recently, the labelmates stirred up a frenzy when Dara was a guest at G-Dragon’s Act III, M.O.T.T.E ‘Moment of Truth The End’ stop in Manila and Kuala Lumpur. While YG Entertainment and the artistes themselves have denied the rumors, this doesn’t stop appliers from shipping Daragon nonetheless.

Sexually Objectifying Women

Bae Bae 

Big Bang returned to the music world with its new work Bae Bae. From the start, Big Bang leaked the concept of the video clip shown specifically to people aged 18 years and over. Even though it looks mature, Bae Bae not only portrays something vulgar but is only made slightly different from other Big Bang videos. Apparently Big Bang uses a variety of sex symbols spread in the Bae Bae video clip.

What are the sex symbols contained in the “Bae Bae” music video? let’s see below!

  • G-Dragon

In this video, G-Dragon is the only Big Bang member who isn’t accompanied by a real female model. He was only surrounded by a statue of a woman. Here, G-Dragon is described as a young man who has just grown up to experience a battle within him. In one scene, G-Dragon is seen holding his hand to the angel statue.

Suddenly, the angel seemed to come out. The character of G-Dragon is described as facing an internal struggle between sexuality and spirituality. In fact, G-Dragon wants to explore his inner desires.

  • Taeyang

The scene by Taeyang portrays a man’s strength and courage. Here, Taeyang is seen riding a horse that is traditionally dated as sexual energy for a man.

When Taeyang drives alone, he is surrounded by beautiful cherry blossoms. Cherry blossoms represent the power of women and a symbol of beauty. Furthermore, Taeyang began hugging and making out with female models. A burning windmill was seen, describing it as desire and fertility.

  • T.O.P

The scene that was performed by T.O.P is full of symbols and sexual images. Starting with the appearance of orchids which in Greek is likened to male fertility for orchis which means testicles. Here, T.O.P indirectly performs a sex scene that is making love by releasing his sperm. It was described as coming out of an injection shaped spray held by T.O.P.

Furthermore, the female model looks really enjoyed when T.O.P fired water. Before long, a little baby appeared in the middle of the description. The many orchids that represent symbols from the anatomy of men and women regarding sexuality.

  • Daesung

Daesung is described as a neutral phase. Here, Daesung is depicted in the middle of a small island surrounded by very clear water. Daesung has a position that is inversely proportional to Taeyang.

Water is a symbol that describes nature for purity, healing and cleansing. Water is a symbol for the goddess, and calmer desires and emotions. When Daesung lay in the water, he tried to cleanse his soul and his sins. In addition, he also has a great desire but still calm when a female model comes out of the water.

  • Seungri

Seungri seemed to lose all desire in him. Here, Seungri seemed not to interact too much with the female models who approached him. In addition, black roses appear to begin to fall out and disappear, a symbol of rejection and unrequited love. Besides that, the woman beside Seungri began to disappear.

Seungri and his woman’s hair was also depicted as white, a symbol of a broken lead. Seungri is described as having a quarrel within him about desires as well as calmness.
