All five BIGBANG members are featured in the August issue of GQ. In the pictorial, the artists mainly modeled winter wear and androgynous combinations by Gucci, Bottega Veneta, and Kim Seoryong Homme, to name a few brands.
During the interview, G-Dragon discussed how he keeps himself inspired and finds new sounds to explore in each album. He stated, “It’s not that I’m sick of music, but I need new stimulation. When you meet people of your unfamiliar field, you start talking about a lot of things. At first, I needed the experience itself but then I realized that I can achieve something more than that.”
The star continued, “I’m not looking for a super famous name or anything. I think that everyone that has pride in their work should be called artists. Wherever you go, there are infinitely many experts like the stars. I learn from them and become humbled. Above all, my judgment on what is good becomes more solid.”
Meanwhile, Taeyang revealed what new artists have caught his attention. He said, “I actually listen to a lot of non-mainstream music. I enjoy watching those songs go mainstream as well. Also, I was kind of surprised when I saw FKA Twigs’s visual work.”
