BIGBANG G-Dragon’s NewJeans-Related Post Earns Mixed Reactions, Confusion

G-Dragon is very active on social media.

BIGBANG‘s G-Dragon has caused a stir again with a post on social media.


On April 19, G-Dragon posted a photo to his Instagram story featuring a cat holding a plush. The star actively updates his story, so this initially did not seem unusual.


However, upon closer examination, a netizen pointed out that the photo was linked to an unexpected group — NewJeans. The plush that the cat is holding onto is official merchandise from the group, the Bunini Costume Plush, which is sold as part of their Line Friends line.

G-Dragon’s social media activity has often attracted attention, like the multiple times he has liked posts by aespa‘s Karina.

Unfortunately, his social media activity has also created trouble for female idols, like the dating rumors sparked when he liked the posts of IVE‘s Wonyoung. The age gap between the two made this rumor all the more scandalous, but it was fortunately verified to be false.

Korean netizens were more confused than anything by what he posted, wondering if it pointed to a collaboration or if the idol was a fan.

  • “Is this a collab or is he a fan?”
  • “Wow, is one of the members featuring on Kwon Jiyong (G-Dragon)’s solo album?”
  • “I hope there’s no G-Dragon feature on NewJeans’ album.”
  • “Just no…”

International netizens had much harsher feelings about the post, finding it “suspicious” following his other social media activity involving other female idols.
