Why Panda?

"Since when did I become a Panda? I have never said " I like Pandas»… Since when Seungri = Panda, why is everyone giving me pandas as a gift? I have so many Panda toys, it's time to open a Panda shop... Is it because of my dark circles under my eyes? I used to be really worried about dark circles, so I went to the doctors to clean them up.… What the doctors said was shocking: "Seungri has insincere dark circles. The success of the operation is very low"... Recently I got interested in Pandas.... By the way, you know what? Panda looks gentle and calm, but goes on the offensive when his family and friends are in danger! It's a bit like me! I want to protect all members, employees and fans ^-^"

Seungri's career took a setback when he became embroiled in a sex scandal with a Japanese woman. As a result, he stepped out of Big Bang's promotional activities for self-reflection. He would revisit the scandal one year later on SBS talk show Incarnation, discussing how it helped him grow up and how fans began to view him more as an adult.
