Fortune Teller Sees Dim Future for G-Dragon in 2012?

"Even after the album comes out, it is going to be difficult to see huge success." These are the words of one fortune teller regarding Big Bang's G-Dragon this coming year. (Coincidentally, it is the year of the dragon according to the zodiac this year.)

On January 2, M.net's "Wide Entertainment News" featured a fortune teller who supposedly looked into G-Dragon's future.

Fortune teller Oh Wang Geun said, "Since last year, G-Dragon's luck has been flowing in an unfavorable pattern. Last year's luck is maintaining the same streak. He's already met bad luck so it's hard to tell what kind of trouble he'll run into with the law."

Oh Wang Geun added, "2012 will become a year of a new start. There is great potential in his song writing and music. It seems as he will become more famous for being a songwriter this year than for being an artist last year."

In conclusion he added, "Even after the album comes out, the fruits of labor will not outweigh the work that went into it," suggesting that it may be too soon for G-Dragon to come back into the spotlight.

In October, it was revealed that G-Dragon had been caught smoking marijuana. He had to go away for some time for "self-discipline," Starting January, he will perform at the YG Family Concert in Japan at the Osaka Kyocera Dome.

What do you think? Will G-Dragon face bad luck again this year or is this fortune teller nothing but a phoney?

‘High Cut’ calls 2012 ‘The Year of the G-Dragon’

High Cut calls 2012 The Year of the G-Dragon The star of this months High Cut is the one and only G-Dragon!

With 2012 being the year of the dragon, the leader of Big Bang was chosen as the representative celebrity born in the year of the dragon for the shoot titled, 2012 Year of the G-Dragon.

Surrounded by life-sized dolls and female models, fashionista G-Dragon showcased a variety of facial expressions as well as various statement apparel pieces ranging from a bright red blazer to red knee-high socks.

To support their leader, members Taeyang and T.O.P made a surprise appearance and light-heartedly pleaded, Please take care of our Jiyong.

Following the photoshoot, G-Dragon sat down for an interview, in which he answered questions about Big Bangs plans for 2012, and his thoughts about some of the negative reaction he is bound to face once Big Bangs promotion is underway.

He stated, I think we will have to work even harder this year than other years with the feeling of paying back [for the support we've received].

To the question about the negative reaction, he responded, Whatever the case, it is my fault so I will accept itIm trying to broaden my heart and mind.

The rest of the photos from the photoshoot can be found on the 70th issue of High Cut.

2012 Year of the Black Dragon: Men's Hairstyle Trends

2012 Year of the Black Dragon: Men's Hairstyle Trends

As 2012 begins the start of a new year, people are looking for something new.

One of the many things that will change during the year of the Black Dragon will be men's hairstyles. Like the styles from 2011, the new styles will still be masculine but upgraded with some flare to give them a touch of chicness and sophistication.

Not too long away, Japanese actor Joe Odagiri was seen at a press conference for the movie, "My Way," with a new 'do. This particular cut is only for those men who dare to try something more fashionable. One side of the head is almost shaved, while the other side is long. If you'd like to try something a little more safe, Won Bin's hairstyle is a good bet.

The hair in the front is a lot longer than the side and the back. If you want to take it one step further, you can shoot for Jay Park's look or Taeyang's look. The sides of their heads are shaved while the middle is kept long as a faux hawk. The contrast between the length of the hair gives definition to style. A little bit of gel or hairwax does the trick by keeping the hair in place.

Through MBC's 2011 hit drama "The Greatest Love," Cha Seung Won created a trend with his hairstyle that was continued by actor Yoo Ah In this year. Similar to Won Bin's hairstyle pictured above, this style features different lengths in the front and on the side. However, the difference is not as noticeable, giving a softer masculine look. Gel it up like Yoo Ah In to give a fresh, chich image or angle it towards your forehead like BEAST's Kikwang for a pop star look.

You've probably seen this haircut countless times over the years because it is so popular. It is called a "dandy cut," and the hair is cut so that the bangs angle around the eyebrows. Because this look is very soft and gives off a warm feeling, it is recommended to men who have strong facial features.

If cut like Lee Min Ki's hair, the hair follows a more round pattern that gives off the look of a young boy. If angled in more of a straight line like Jung Gyeo Woon's, it can be permed slightly to give a little more bounce and volume. Lee Jang Woo, SS501's Kim Hyun Joong, and Lee Seung Gi also give off "flower boy" looks with their defined waves.

The year of the Black Dragon will definitely bring in new styles. Which one of these anticipated trends looks the best?
