When reporters asked about the impact Big Bang's had on the Korean music scene, G-Dragon responded, "In the 10 years we've done music, we never prepared music or albums thinking about our influence. We've simply done what we wanted to do, and I think we continue to be successful because so many people around us have helped us."
The Big Bang leader then continued, "When I read articles that say junior artists look up to us, I feel really happy. We've also looked up to senior groups in our debut days and watered our dreams thinking, 'Musicians should be like that.' We're all comrades because we learn from the junior artists and they learn from us as well. We don't think we're all that; rather, we always see aspects about ourselves we can work on, strive to improve them, and go about our promotions with those goals in mind."
