It has indeed been a busy week for the K-pop industry as the two frontmen of Big Bang, G-Dragon and T.O.P made headlines for different reasons.
With G-Dragon returning with his much-awaited solo EP ‘Kwon Ji Yong’ it was first announced that the title song would be titled “Bullsh*t”. However, after the news of T.O.P’s sudden marijuana scandal, it appears G-Dragon quickly took action to switch his hip-hop based song to a more soothing, calm track “Untitled.”
YG Entertainment explained, “This album illustrates the very human nature of G-Dragon in which he wishes to express in all honesty.”
Though the agency did not specifically comment on why the title song was abruptly swapped out, many are speculating it was to steer clear from any more controversy as Big Bang is receiving much spotlight at the moment.

Despite all this, G-Dragon swept the music charts once again which isn’t surprising for the talented world-renowned artist. In a past interview, G-Dragon had commented, “Whether it’s a Big Bang album or a solo one, there’s always some sort of jinx going on before an album is released.”
He continued on, “A problem occurs whether it be related to myself or others around me. Someone either suddenly gets injured or there’s a big issue, something always happens.”
G-Dragon gave an example, “There was this one incident where during the time of our album release, one of the staff members got hurt and we said to ourselves that it was a mishap,” and said he has been very cautious since then when working on or releasing an album.
