He can literally call K-Pop his hometown, because the leader of BIG BANG started off as just a young toddler in the early stages of global powerhouse, YG Entertainment. Gifted with the passion for music and his unending determination, G-Dragon literally raised YG to the massive company that it is. How can we not massively crush on this talented heartthrob when he’s accomplished so much inside and out of K-Pop?

Forever Tiamo GD

 G-Dragon

(Kwon JiYong)

 

Who’s Our BCM?

 G-Dragon was born under the name Kwon JiYong on August 18, 1988. He had a fast start in his entertainment career as he first made his televised appearances at the age of 5. He was scouted by SM Entertainment when he was 8 years old, while on a ski trip. From 8 to 13, he trained under the label as a dancer, because he wasn’t sure about what to do in his future. In 3rd grade, he developed an interest in rap and hip hop, even signing up for classes to help train him. While participating as he youngest rapper at the age of 13, he caught the eye of Sean from Jinusean. Thus, he was introduced to YG’s CEO, Yang HyunSuk, who fell in love with the young boy’s potential. After persuading him to cross over to YG, G-Dragon and YG have been together ever since. After 6 years of training, GD made his long awaited debut as the leader and producer of BIG BANG on August 19, 2006. The rest is history as he went on to create album after album of world found success, both as BIG BANG and as a solo artist.

Why We Crush

G-Dragon is now a legend among the K-Pop idols, as a majority of them look up to the idol’s talents and skills. GD’s composed and produced for BIG BANG’s albums ever since their debut, and released globally renown tracks, such as ‘Lies’, ‘Fantasty Baby’, ‘Bae Bae’ and so much more. Needless to say, he’s rolling cash with so much left over. Even still, G-Dragon never once fakes himself to match his wealth. The world of fans love him so much for his down to Earth personality while off stage, but other-worldly charisma and swag while on stage. Just because he’s one of the greatest K-Pop artists ever lived, doesn’t mean that he forgets where he comes from. He’s often seen mentoring and spending time with his YG juniors to help them become the best that they can be.

 

Where We’ve Seen Him

 G-Dragon not only rules the K-Pop kingdom, but he’s also an honorary guest at some of the most exclusive events in the fashion industry. GD’s always been known for his outstanding sense of style since his debut. With his creative fashion sense and innovative materials, he’s befriended some of the top class representatives of the fashion world – ever hear of Karl Lagerfeld, the head designer and creative director of Chanel and Fendi? To solidify his stance in the industry, GD’s collaborated with various clothing brands, as well as launched his very own called PEACEMINUSONE.

Where We’ll See Him Next

Get ready V.I.Ps, because the upcoming comeback of the powerhouse BIG BANG will be a special one! The K-Pop legends are all set to return with the final closing of their MADE series on December 12, 2016. This will mark the last album for the group in a while, since T.O.P will enlist in the military early next year with the rest of the group to follow within the years. With our heads out of our mind for another knotch on G-Dragon’s hall of fame records, TaeYang gave us a teaser of the boys filming their new MV!

Vernon

(HanSol Vernon Chwe)

 

Who’s Our BCM?

 Vernon was born on February 18, 1998 in New York as HanSol Vernon Chwe. His family moved to Korea when he was 5 years old, so Vernon has spent most of his life in Korea moreso than the US. Even so, he never lost his English with the help of his parents, and was introduced and fell in love with the hip-hop genre. With his passion for rap and his stunning good looks, he quickly found a home at Pledis Entertainment. Through the label’s debut programs, “17TV” and “Seventeen Project: Big Debut Plan”, Vernon debuted on May 26th, 2015 as the main rapper for rookie group, SEVENTEEN.

Why We Crush

Vernon’s a good looking dude, but he’s got a big heart to match his warm smile. Vernon has a special place in his heart for his one and only younger sister, Sophia. When they were young, they often filmed English videos and even featured as child actors on an English channel program. When Vernon was debuting, he mentioned that he was most sorry to his sister for not being able to be there for her as often as he could. At the end of the clip, Sophia can be seen cheering for her brother with the same signature Chwe smile, proving their strong sibling bond. Don’t we all wish we had a caring brother like Vernon?!

 

Where We’ve Seen Him

 Vernon’s full of passion and determination. Pre-debut, Vernon competed on Mnet’s “Show Me the Money 4” to test and challenge himself before his grand debut. Although he was looked down upon for his age and pre-debut skills, Vernon nailed a spot onto the 3rd round (Personally, we think they were just jealous of his good looks!). Since then, Vernon mentioned that he felt apologetic to his members for ‘selfishly’ deciding to appear on the program right before their debut. Although it got his name out, Vernon’s name wasn’t only seen in a positive light. The members all expressed their understanding that Vernon went to challenge himself and that they were glad that he was able to experience all that he could to prepare for their future.

 

Where We’ll See Him Next

CARATs will be able to see the strong bond between Vernon and his SEVENTEEN brothers again through their upcoming album, “Going Seventeen”! The group’s album drops on December 5th, which means that we’ll be seeing even more performances for their award ceremony stages. Get bundled up and your fan-girl packs ready, because it’s going to be a busy winter for all the Vernon fans. Award ceremonies, music show appearances, variety and reality shows – we can’t get enough of Vernon!

(Jung JinYoung)

 

Who’s Our BCM?

JinYoung was born on November 18, 1991 in ChungJoo, South Korea. At a young age, JinYoung moved to Seoul by himself with one simple dream: to become a celebrity. After arriving in Seoul, he began taking on any random job in the entertainment industry. While applying for any audition, he played extras on various shows and dramas. Although he didn’t know exactly what kind of celebrity he wanted to be, WM Entertainment took him in to help him fully understand his potential. After years of training, JinYoung finally debuted as the leader and lead vocalist of the group B1A4.

Why We Crush

JinYoung is famous as an ‘effort-idol’. Instead of being born with natural talent, JinYoung had to finely tone up his skills. He began with his vocals and dancing skills, but soon expanded into acting and even producing. Looking at JinYoung, you’d think that he was a natural born talent, because he executes everything with seeming ease. His B1A4 members revealed that their leader was a work-a-holic who put in hours and blood to get where he needs to be. With all the hard work, he was able to become one of the brightest idols, record producers, and actors. Although he’s always been well known for composing most of B1A4’s songs, JinYoung most recently gained much love for composing ‘In the Same Place’ for Produce 101, ‘Hold Up’ for I.O.I and ‘Misty Road’ for “Moonlight Drawn By Clouds” OST.

 

Where We’ve Seen Him

We know him as the leading man of B1A4, but JinYoung’s name finally became a household name for his critically acclaimed role as Kim YoonSung in KBS’s 2016 drama of the year, “Moonlight Drawn by Clouds”. JinYoung played the 2nd male lead who fights Park BoGum for the affection of Kim YooJung. With his soft, caring charisma and perfect acting, JinYoung won the hearts of the nation.

 

Where We’ll See Him Next

JinYoung will be returning back to his musical roots. B1A4 will be making their long awaited comeback to K-Pop on November 28th. The group returns with another song composed by none other than JinYoung. “Good Timing” will be the group’s 3rd full length album featuring the title track, ‘It’s a Lie’. With their return, we’ll be wishing for JinYoung to receive awards for acting, singing and composing!
