G-Dragon shared during his interview at a cafe in Seogyodong, Seoul on the 25th, "I think Big Bang will release an album next year... I think I've been saying this since last year and I continue to get bashed because I said it would happen but it didn't, so I can't say exactly when it will happen."
"I am really preparing for it now... It might sound like an excuse, but even though I'm not the type to experience a creative block, honestly it doesn't come out as well as it used to. That is why I've been pondering more, and I want to greet you as soon as possible more than anyone else."
"I want to bring good music, but the good music is not totally completed and things keep getting pushed back, so if you wait a little longer, we will make up for it... Although it would be nice if we could greet you soon... I think this album will be an important album for us so we are working harder for it."
During the interview, reporters also asked him to address his relationship with Mizuhara Kiko, especially with the two's intimate moments caught by the paparazzi. However, G-Dragon avoided the question lightheartedly, and said, "I don't have any comments to offer," then joked to the reporters, "Maybe I'll text you separately [about it]," as he laughed.
Let's keep our fingers crossed for a potential Big Bang comeback next year!
