[LEADERS WEEK] The most well-known leader in K-pop
In honor of Leaders Week and of my Ultimate Bias I give you a card on who I believe is the best Leader in k-pop! {I know it's long but there are pictures at the end=)} I would also like to dedicate this card to @BBxGD

To start off here are 3 of my favorite opinions I found...=D

"Not only did GD manage to bring to the world the young and talented BIGBANG, but he's also a sweet and lovely person. He also writes/takes part in writing most of the band's songs (Japanese, Korean, and English), and they've all become such hits. He even writes out solos for some of his fellow members. He also produces some of the band's music. Not only is he a rapping talent, he's also a vocalist talent... If you ever hear his beautiful falsetto, you'll understand. The young, talented GD and BIGBANG!" "GD has completed every aspects there is to be an AWESOME leader! Rap, dance, unique singing, writing/composing/producing songs, awesome personality, has great manners, awesome sense of style, great stage presence, diligent, perfectionist, cares for other members (that's why BIGBANG's friendship is unquestionable! ), gives one hell of a fanservice, WHAT ELSE DID I MISS?! I know that no one is perfect, but to me/us as VIP we see him as a leader, who actually DESERVE to be a leader! So sorry if I might've gone too far.." "I love kwon leader very much, he is the most adorable and charismatic leader I ever knew.. He loves his member and always monitoring them as well although he kinda busy He can sing and dance well, he also a great rapper and composer, good looking person, and has a fantastic fashion sense. What a perfect leader!" <HERE>

"The right kind of music is not made once the artist feels that music is work. When one is working on music, performing or just having fun, ... it directly influences the music ... The more I work, the more I feel like I'm learning and maturing at the same time." - G-Dragon

"I personally do not care about what others say about me. If I were easily affected by the feedback that we gained, we would not be able to be true to ourselves. It also applies in fashion, even if I wore ridiculous clothes, I would just want to show you my true colors. I believe that people would follow suit of our belief, since I have experienced it myself, I will not change it even in the future" - G-Dragon
Despite his obvious amazing talent at so many different things, his personality makes him a complete 5 star worthy idol! (HIS SMILE THO) I would get all sappy and explain why I love GD so much....but to be honest with you all...I can't really put it into to words. I honestly think it would be easier to tell you what I don't: the fact that he smokes. Thats only because I care about him. SO NOW JUST ENJOY PICTURES!!
YAAAAAAYYYYY Sorry for the pictures not being the best, I have so many on my phone its hard to pick choose the best ones. XD
