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................

    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
