BIGBANG reveals G-Dragon’s slump period and Seungri’s increasing maturity

BIGBANG talks about Seungri‘s increasing maturity, and G-Dragon personally speaks about his slump period before their album release.

Agreeing with Taeyang, who has mentioned that Seungri has never had a slump period since debut, Seungri explained,“I never thought that it was hard, and I never thought about any other path other than BIGBANG. Truthfully, I reflected a lot on myself and worked hard to survive while being surrounded by such talented hyungs. I thought that the best thing was to match the other four members well so I worked to balance the group out.”

Continuing, G-Dragon said, “In the past, Seungri would often get in trouble with his hyungs for various reasons, but at one point, he matured without us having to tell him anything. I think there was a personal moment that made him change. Before, Seungri didn’t have any image within YG Entertainment, but now he is very popular. Seungri and I don’t reflect as much as the other three, as we try not to dwell on the bad things.” Comparing himself and Seungri to the other members, G-Dragon stated, “Taeyang, T.O.P, and Daesung have deep moments, with Daesung being the deepest amongst everyone. Both Taeyang and T.O.P are deep, but are also sensitive. In contrast, Seungri and I just think whatever happens to be good is good.”

Referring to his own personal slump, G-Dragon began with, “If I were to talk about my slump when it came to music, there were times when, even with a lot of effort, it wouldn’t turn out well. In the past, even after coming back from a long, tiring day, I would write at least two songs at the dorm before I slept as if it were my duty. Last year, however, things just weren’t working out for me so the album kept getting delayed. I’m also not the type who writes songs just for the sake of it. Because of that, the CEO was worried last year; I used to do things so easily, but now the album just kept getting delayed.

What I’ve realized through this promotion was that BIGBANG has to continue with all five members. I messaged the members saying, ‘We really need to release an album,’ and sent one to the CEO saying, ‘If the company creates the space for all the members to work together, I think we will be able to do it.’ From the end of last year to the beginning of this year, we all worked together in the studio. I took out all the songs that I had made in the past three years. This single is filled with songs that we’ve worked on these past two to three months.

People who work in the music field all say that they have a ‘muse.’ For me, I think my members are my muse. If I think about who I work for, it has always been the members. This is how I got out of my slump.”

Recently, BIGBANG has reached an all-kill on the music charts for “LOSER,” followed by “BAE BAE.”
