Big Bang‘s G-Dragon recently commented on how Korean music is limited and complained about music that only appeals to the masses, which is just fucking precious.
At the press conference for the finale of Big Bang‘s world tour in Seoul, he said, “I’ve been thinking that Korean music has been for the most part, limited in scope to just one genre. (When producing music) I tried to think less of music that is simply appealing to the masses.”
He also added, “Rather than listening to just Korean music with a rapidly changing landscape, I listen to a variety of music from many genres. I wish we could go back to the time when we made music that made memories. In other countries, as long as a song is good, a new album can have a positive response two, three, or even 6 months after its release.”
Him complaining about Korean music being limited and only for the masses is like JYP complaining about producers who plagiarize songs. Like … what? Motherfucker is talking like he’s Clazziquai or some indie artist or something.
Yo, broham, you are part of the fucking machine and part of the problem, what the fuck?
Besides, while K-pop might all be the same since it IS one genre after all, there’s a ton of indie artists in Korea who are now diversifying the music pool. The problem is that a lot of people, especially international fans, have no idea about it because K-pop trumps everything. Maybe those scenes aren’t to the level of Japan yet, where they’ve become their own sub-culture (well, hip hop in Korea has), but they’re advancing, and they certainly would advance quicker if K-pop stopped dominating every aspect of the music industry.
So … if he really wanted to contribute, then he should leave YG Entertainment and go indie, which I’m sure he’s totally on the verge of doing.
I dunno, dude must scoring that sticky icky while scavenging for cock in the bathrooms of gay clubs or something … er … I mean being tricked into thinking a blunt was a cigarette. Yeah, he just temporarily lost perspective. I’ll give him a pass, because he can’t possibly be that far gone.
