If an artist thinks about music as work, he will not be able to create a good composition. When someone is working, performing or just having fun, [...] it directly affects the music [...] the more I work, the more I feel that i learning and maturing at the same time.

No matter how you try, you still will have problems...

The contribution of G-Dragon in the creation of his own music brought him much praise but also much criticism.
At the time G-Dragon was accused of plagiarism, first song "With You", which he wrote for the Big Bang, and then the songs "Heartbreaker" and "Butterfly", which he performed as a solo artist.

But he didn't give up

In 2017, he released the album under the name "KwonJiYong". After the concert June 10, 2017, in Seoul at the World Cup stadium, which attracted about 40,000 fans, G-Dragon went on a world tour, M. O. T. T. E - the Moment of Truth The End.

Mini-album and world tour brought to G-Dragon's success and new records.
So mini-album release topped iTunes in 46 countries, which at the time was an absolute record for a Korean artist. Given that the record was broken for 2018 only once, and that musical group, we can say that for a solo artist and musical groups KwonJIYong is the strap.

PEACEMINUSONE it is the own brand of GD, which he presented to his fans a few years ago.
PEACEMINUSONE, is a reflection of the mindset and understanding of G-Dragon, where the word PEACE is peace and tranquility in a world is not enough (MINUS) place for peace and dreams of one (ONE).
