The 21-year-old idol star from Big Bang, GDragon, held his first title concert titled, “Shine A Light.” Thousands of fans around the country gathered for this special event, many of them being in their 10s and young teenage years. The fans had a great time at the concert, and even the fans across the globe who watched it through fan cameras seemed to enjoy it as well. The problem arose after the concert, when the stories and videos circulated the web.

The Issues:

” Breathe” performance with Aimee Lee Lucas

  • At one point when she had her legs around his hips, many netizens declared that the point was to clearly depict a “sex” scene.
  • Some fans at the concert said that at one point they even heard “heavy breathing” sounds mixed in with the track
  • Sounds or not, the netizens are clearly making a statement that, the scene he portrayed was too young for most of the audience present.

‘She’s Gone’ performance

GDragon showed himself smoking and holding a knife, and even worse, stabbing a person with it exposing the fans to the violence.

  • Netizens fired back at GDragon arguing that such images shouldn’t be shown at all, especially to the minor kids.
  • Fans were divided in their opinion, some saying that it had been “cool,” while the other argued that this was inappropriate for the younger audience.

According to YG Entertainment, they stated:

  • “Because he was preparing performances to match the songs, there are some that are at a higher level.”
  • “Please watch this as GDragon becoming an adult.”

Netizens comments:

  • “I wonder why he does that when he knows that his fans are mostly in their teen years”
  • “I know that he wants attention and all, but this is just out of the box”
  • “He is just portraying the songs. Not a big deal”
  • “He didn’t even actually do it [sex] on stage!”
  • “Whatever people say,  I respect GDragon for his confidence”
  • “From a mother’s point of view, I’m really mad, I hope my kids don’t see this”
  • “Oh so he likes these things? Shall we call this SM?”

    This is kind of inappropriate, but he should have a minor fine or something.. no need for like a big prosecution! I’m glad Korea is trying to keep kids away from sex, drugs, and things that pollute kid’s minds. They should just fine him because that actually WAS inappropriate! There were little kids there and he should’ve been aware. Even for entertainment, having a girl strapped to a bed and making out isn’t a pleasing sight. No matter how much sex sells, let’s keep it PG-13 PLEASE.
