G-Dragon answered "I always have plans. Rather than a big project, at this time, I want to just do something in a way where it's more like artists that connect well meet and enjoy things together. That way it'd be more comfortable and allow a fun song to be made. If I were to tell you one thing, it'd be that Justin Bieber has already completed the recording. It's my turn now. You'll probably be able to meet [this song] next year."

Just last month, G-Dragon was a surprise guest in Justin Bieber's first Korean concert. In the middle of the Bieb's stop at the Olympic Park's gymnasium in Seoul, G-Dragon hit the stage for a surprise performance of his song "Crayon."

G-Dragon is one of three members in Big Bang who could have easily held his own as a solo artist in the industry. His individualistic fashion sense alone sets him apart from the hundreds of other idols trying to stand out in the crowd. Aside from his impeccable style, G-Dragon has music flowing through his blood stream. Training since the tender age of 8, G-Dragon has been honing his craft for the last 17 years and the hard work most definitely shows.

Taeyang is hands down one of the most talented artists in the K-pop industry. Not only does he possess the moves of a dancing god, but the vocals on this man are a gift from the harmonious heavens.
