BIGBANG’s G-Dragon is opening a new ‘G-Dragon Cafe’ and a bowling alley on Jeju Island.
‘G-Dragon Cafe’ and the bowling alley, each scheduled to open in February and March, are even more meaningful because G-Dragon took part in designing and planning them from the beginning.
The design of ‘G-Dragon Cafe’ was inspired by the logo of G-Dragon’s fashion brand PEACEMINUSONE. The bowling alley equipped with a lounge pub comes as a result of G-Dragon’s idea that Jeju Island lacks leisure facilities all family members can enjoy.
After a year of steady progress, both the cafe and the bowling alley are now in the final stage of interior design. G-Dragon has been staying in Jeju Island, installing his personal collections and painting pictures for the interior design.
G-Dragon’s agency YG Entertainment stated that Mônsant De Aewol, known as the former ‘G-Dragon Cafe,’ had been sold at the end of last year. The cafe now owned by another individual under a different name no longer has anything to do with G-Dragon, according to YG Entertainment.
The agency added, “The ‘chandelier damage’ incident that caused an online sensation is completely irrelevant to G-Dragon. This is because personal collections that G-Dragon had installed were removed a long time ago as they were wrapping up the business.”
The ‘chandelier damage’ incident refers to the controversy that broke out when a customer at Mônsant De Aewol accidentally damaged the chandelier reported to be worth 300 million won (approximately $283,400). The customer appeared to be unashamed of the accident and accused G-Dragon of placing the chandelier in a wrong position, even though G-Dragon only asked her to pay the repair work cost, saying he would pay for the rest. The post gained attention online and was deleted after several people criticized the writer for the problematic attitude.
