The August 22 installment of 'Myeon Dan Gong Gae 2016 ('The List 2016')' revealed the top list of K-celebs who are known to have the largest circle of celebrity friends, both within and outside of Korea! 

The Korean star that topped this list, unsurprisingly, was G-Dragon! G-Dragon boasts a wide circle of acquaintances and friends, among them Suzy, Dara, CLJennie, Kim Hee Sun, Park Han Byul, Uhm Jung Hwa, and the list just goes on and on.

GD is also friendly with other well-known stars overseas, including Japanese model/actress Nana Komatsu, Chinese actress Angelababy, Taiwanese actor Chen Bolin, and even Will Smith!  Others who ranked high were Song Ji Hyo, Park Shin Hye, and CL


I mean, what's not to like about GD? The guy's charming, talented, and humble!

    HERE'S SOMETHING ACTUALLY SELFLESS & NOTEWORHTY AKP --> To mark his 28th birthday last August 18th, G-Dragon reportedly gave 81.8 million won (approx. $72,512.00 USD) to the United Nations Refugee Agency. YG Entertainment confirmed in a statement that the artist wanted to help the refugees struck off from their homes in conflict areas and also aimed to create more awareness about the cause. After his birthday, YG Entertainment also collaborated with UNICEF’s latest campaign “Celebrate and Give,” as the members celebrated their tenth anniversary. G-Dragon joined the rest of the members for a sold-out concert at the Seoul World Cup Stadium last August 20th. Source: Chosun Ilbo

    Title is misleading. Celebrity encounters, perhaps, but definitely not "friends." He said in a YooHeeYeol Sketchbook interview: "You may think I'm surrounded by friends, but I don't have any." What makes you think he has international ones?

    its called being humble & he was kidding. if u havent been following GD nor his circle of frineds who happen to be both domestic and overseas and has hung out with him on more than 1 occasion, then u are in no position to call the title "misleading". U make it sound as if an asian kpop singer cannot have friends. also by ur logic jackson and amber and hongki's friends are what, imaginary? they took have joked about being loners while STILL having a social circle.

    He actually does have a large social circle. But what he meant on Yeol's Sketchbook imo was that he don't usually talk to them about his troubles. He once said that he tend to keep them to himself. Social circle doesn't just mean "friends" or "close friends". It could mean acquaintances. Famous celebs like GD don't simply give their numbers to people if they don't want to change their numbers on weekly or monthly basis bc of all those stalkers. You can easily tell he's close with another person if he shares his new number with them. Same goes for other A-list celebs. I'm pretty sure Myeon Dan Gong Gae counted the CURRENT/CONTACTABLE phone numbers of the celebs in a celebs' contacts which also means how many celebs those celebs are actually really close to.

    And this is why GD was 0 following back & has a personal account set up on iG. He knows ppl love to dissect every little thing. Even with this list ppl below have a problem with & comparing his circle with others.He's popular and has the most # of celeb friends just like how the earth is Round (its a fact, get over it). If you want to question the people on the list mentioned go right ahead, but it still doesnt change the fact he is close with hundreds of others both domestic and overseas. Its completely acceptable someone can be sociable and popular and maintain a friendship no matter the distance, and schedules. Let it gooo. About the suzy, AKP wrote about it --> hhtp:// www . allkpop. com /article/2013/g-dragon-responds-to-suzys-tweet

    Of course, some may be true friends but some are just for publicity

    afte seeing this today, fuck the list bcz even GD would be hating how they ranked him --> To mark his 28th birthday last August 18th, G-Dragon reportedly gave 81.8 million won (approx. $72,512.00 USD) to the United Nations Refugee Agency. YG Entertainment confirmed in a statement that the artist wanted to help the refugees struck off from their homes in conflict areas and also aimed to create more awareness about the cause.

    GD is one privvy person, he does not brag, boast, flaunt and namedrop people and in his stature as one of the living legends in KPOP , he doesn't need to. Does he have a lot of celebs friends, sure, both in Korea and International ..that goes without saying. I followed GD for the longest time, I have yet to hear him namedrop celebrities, his best friends are always Bigbang members  especially Yongbae! .I watched a TV show long time ago, and this actress just  said he knew GD since he was a kid, that took me by surprise, GD never said anything about it. It's Kim Hee Sun, actress from FAITH drama opposite Lee Min Ho. That's just one example. Celebrities talked about being friends with GD, not the other way around. That's just the way it is.

    The comments are hilarious think what u want but just bcz u see other idols talk more openly about their friendships & flaunt it on tv, doesnt mean its your place to dissect GDs social circle and question it. Fact: he has the most # of celeb friends domestic and foreign among K-idols. The end. Your opinion doesnt matter

    I doubt any of these artists were asked who their friends are. It's all speculation, both in these comments and the list itself. Why have a problem with people saying what they think when it's not even rude in the slightest? GD himself said that he doesn't have many friends - now that is a fact.

    u again, I've read ur other comment.. its called being HUMBLE. he doesnt brag or namedrop. have u followed his social circle? I have, for yrs. As well at the media. GD gets misunderstood by media soo much & ever since all of his scandals/controversies so he prefers to not link himself to anyone or say it from his own mouth BCZ he saw what happened when he was sit consistently with scandals and controversies. People were dragging him down and ALL his friends including his "fans". YES there ARE artists who casually namedrop/bring up other artists/friendships in conversations during interviews/variety even when not asked and i dont have a problem with that i like that they are open i.e. Chansung of 2pm talked about being close with Seungri for YRS & called him live on tv. You are holding onto 1 line he said ONCE not repetitively. GD is quite social and even if he said that at one point, those who follow him can see clearly his circle of celeb friends is huge thats a fact. On GDTV during heartbreaker he revealed ALOT of his close celeb friends & regular friends on camera that we had no idea about. He called them him 'brothers'. There are older celebs he has been close with for yrs but never mentioned out loud unless directly asked about. Its a fact he has reputable designer artist, model, singer, actor/actress friends from different backgrounds and cultures. Thre are ppl who are arguing with this fact which is a waste of time. Its like saying "I know the earth is flat even though its been proven the earth is round." IF ppl want to question PARTICULAR celebs go right ahead, but the truth remains, hes got the most celeb friends domestic and overseas. DONE.

    PS THIS is why GD has a private account. He was sick of all the antis and "fans" peering into his personal life and finding out who he follows or who follows him and why he didnt follow 'X' back or why he liked someone elses photo. He doesn't care what media what artiles comes out unless its really defaming and slandering. Anyway, He unfollowed AKP along with amber, siwon, MIn, ailee etc. -- http: //onehallyu . com/topic/30810-korean-idols-unfollow-allkpop-on-twitter/

    He literally said "I don't have many friends" and talked about being lonely. That's not being humble. I'd rather believe his own words.

    I love it, to think people (and I) thought Big Bang often doesnt interact with other KPOP artists. But they show support to acts like Jay Park (when he opened AOMG) and then Beenzino. Haha, GD.

    GDragon himself said he didn't have many actual friends. Aren't many of these just connections? I feel like, honestly, a few of the celebrities with many friends are Amber, Seungri, Jackson and Heechul (or at least they seem to be close with many others, or can easily make themselves comfortable speaking to other idols, more than just taking pictures with them).
