G-Dragon's 'PEACEMINUSONE' fashion products are becoming an issue among netizens. The complaints include inappropriate product marketing and price.

First, netizens call out the cost of 'PEACEMINUSONE' products for being too expensive. It's claimed that the hats pricing 228,000 KRW ($201.80 USD) and t-shirts costing 348,000 KRW ($308.01 USD) are ridiculously expensive and also unaffordable by many young fans. 


Furthermore, the way the price is written out on the website has become a target. The Korean currency "won" is written out in English even when one chooses to read the site in Korean. Netizens find this marketing strategy unnecessary and demand 'PEACEMINUSONE' to use Korean throughout the whole site when one chooses Korean for the default language. 


On the other hand, some netizens find the above claims more ridiculous than 'PEACEMINUSONE's price and marketing, commenting, "He's a global star. If you think about his worth, then the prices are understandable", "All brand names are expensive. This is not new", "The price is normal considering that it's by G-Dragon", etc.


What are your thoughts on the issue regarding G-Dragon's 'PEACEMINUSONE' products?

Wait wt? Brand name? Global star? Hold on a minute. There is a HUGE difference between a gucci bag and a black GD T-shirt. First of all, the product is just a black shirt, so the price for it should be WAY lower. If i wanted to buy a black shirt i would just go to the market and buy one with only 5$. :/ And if the quality is not good then i'll JUST BUY 5 MORE since it's costs 5$. :) And i don't give a damn about GD's worth xD i'm a fan of his and when i heard that he was going to come out with some clothes i was very excited but then i saw the prices and the excitement was gone for good. The highest you can price this t-shirt is 100$ since it's GD. Nothing more................

ok if prices piss u off, then DONT BUY!!! super simple. also u can tell that this is an exclusive brand because there is a 1 buy per customer limit!!!

agree, If you can not afford it then don't buy. don't judge GD. if so many people can't buy it, GD and team will outomaticly adjust the price. it's economic system, you know

well, it is designer stuff. not everything celebrities make is for their fans. kanye west has a clothes brand with extremely expensive clothing, more expensive than this.

DZico prinxcipe Friday, October 7, 2016

kanye west was also criticized for over priced clothes

DZico Friday, October 7, 2016

prinxcipe DZico Saturday, October 8, 2016

DZico samoankpoper21 Friday, October 7, 2016

I can't afford to pay the price for his merchandise. That being said, if you can afford to buy it, go for it. The price can always be adjusted if the merchandise does not sell. Time will tell.  However netizens are always complaining about something so what else is new? lol

There are a lot of obvious reasons why the price of PEACEMINUSONE are soooo high:1. It's G to the D guys. His name alone worth a lot! 2. He's obviously targeting the elite class. From the marketing strategy alone to the classic products and prices. 3. He might be following the path of Chanel and other high-end fashion brands.4. He knows that there are other products that younger fans can buy to support him. Why do you think would he even have his own fashion brand while being the ambassador of 8"? He even designed the clothes that he endorses in 8"xgd. Hence, he knows that younger fans would opt to buy 8", while older fans who are already in the working class would rather buy his own brand.So I guess he has the right to determine the price of his products. After all, his name is at stake. I honestly wouldn't buy it, because it doesn't fit my budget but hey if you have money to do so then why not? 😊

If you want to buy the clothes from GD, you can buy 8seconds products. They are affordable and not very expensive.

DZico Friday, October 7, 2016

no one is forcing you to buy it .
