YG Entertainment has spoken up regarding fans' latest complaints that G-Dragon's USB album 'Kwon Ji Yong' was defective, due to the red ink rubbing off easily.

The label told news outlets on June 16 (KST), "It was intentional for the red ink to stain on the USB, in order to portray the concepts of G-Dragon's DNA and being inside a mother's womb." 


YGE continued, "Some users, not knowing the intention of the USBS, claimed that 'The ink rubs off from the USB album', 'It's defective', and more online, but it's clear from the image revealed on the album sale site that the color is not permanent, and the scratches are also meant to be there. We also issued a notice before the USB album went on sale that the product may obtain scratches easily, as well as that the color may fade. Previously, when we mentioned facing difficulties with the USB album's production, this was the reason."


The label also revealed photos from the production stage of the USB album, adding on, "We realized that we could only produce the effects G-Dragon wanted by coloring the red ink onto the albums by hand, as well as marking the vintage scratches by hand. It also took a long time to perfect the system in which we are not just simply selling a USB with music on it, but a specialized item complete with unique links to access a variety of contents."


"The handwriting on the surface of the USB, 'Kwon Ji Yong', is also the handwriting of G-Dragon's mother from when G-Dragon was first born, and was also G-Dragon's idea to use... Through what's been provided in the USB, fans will be able to see a different version of the 'Untitled, 2014' MV, as well as MV making films, and more," YG Entertainment finished. 


It turns out, G-Dragon's USB albums are handmade! Pretty cool, huh?

    Painting on the USB is just a really bad idea.... how about just use red USB and hand make the scratches?

    Your not wrong to think that way bcoz if it is really intentional, then why do they say "Previously, when we mentioned (facing difficulties) with the USB album's production" before then?

    I'm not a hater... please dont take me wrong... again in my opinion i think gd idea is really cool... but the execution of the idea and concept are not done really well... and this issue concern me bcus in the near future many artist including my fav might release the same format like this album... so i dont want company selling a problematic (??) goods bcome a trend... some people may afford to buy things that their own fav idol offer to them without nothing to care about... while others who need to save money in order to buy their bias album really want things that really worth their money (if this is make sense)
