Big Bang’s G-Dragon has been named as one of the most influential stars of the past year by iconic fashion and lifestyle publication, Hypebeast.
The hugely popular online and print magazine revealed the 27-year-old boy band idol as one of the 100 most influential figures of 2015 saying, “If you’re at all familiar with K-Pop, it’s likely that G-Dragon is the first name that comes to mind.”
The Big Bang star was chosen from masses of candidates spanning various fields across the arts from music and fashion and moreover, this year, he is the only K-Pop artist to have made the list.
G-Dragon previously graced the cover of Hypebeast magazine back in 2014. That year he was also included in the list along with Chairman of Samsung Lee Kun Hee.
