Gdragon is under fire or being praised depending on which side you look at for what we’re about to discuss.
On April 25, Gdragon uploaded a series of photos to his Instagram showing off his new luxurious apartment that he reportedly purchased for more than $7 million. The post has 10 photos; eagle-eyed fans noticed that in one of the photos, a painting of BIGBANG as five members was noticed in his house which is based on a photo he uploaded some time in 2016 before everything went down.
When international fans saw the photos, many of them praised him and declared this an indication that Gdragon believes BIGBANG is still five members despite the controversies Seungri has been involved in, they left comments such as,
Yaa OT5 FOREVER…i’m so happy.
Hope you are doing well baby, BIGBANG IS 5
THANKS FOR THE POST JIYONG, BIGBANG 5. DO APPRECIATE
On the other hand, Korean news outlets that covered the story garnered negative reaction from k-netizens who didn’t mince words when criticizing Gdragon for his post, some of their comments include,
just don’t come out on TV
bigbang is a has-been now
Seungri left BIGBANG in 2019 after being associated with the Burning Sun scandals; he’s currently awaiting trial for a lot of accusations against him. He’s currently serving the military.
Do you think Gdragon meant to send a message? or are fans reading too much into it?
