    Power was called a flop song and Exo's worst ever, but power got the whole of SM Town Family to Dubai!!!! Interesting, isn't it?

    There's a time when GD pointed out how Shinee and Exo don't write or compose their songs. He said he can't be confident, promoting a song just given to him. The following year Jonghyun made his album and was awarded for it, I wonder how GD felt. Lol!

    Share similar things that have happened to your favs.

    Edit: GD pointed out a fact and he didn't mean to downplay any group. And Lay and Jonghyun have both made albums and have been awarded. And other group members contribute to the group albums too.

    he was asked what made bigbang different from other groups and he said they wrote their songs, but in no way he was trying to downplay exo or shinee, he was highlighting bigbang's qualities

    I mean you can promote your favourites without downplaying others

    I love bigbang,shinee and exo
    what should I do? I do not think GD intended to downplay shinee or EXO
    he was just saying how bigbang is different , I remember that interview is from 2015,he had orange hair

    Korean media made fun of Keys airport fashion, he became a stage director and custom designer in SM.
    SM vocal instructor told Taemin he is tone deaf, Onew and Jonghyun showed him he is just a shitty instructor.

    He didn't say it to anyone specifically. He just said it in a general sense, if memory serves me right. I could be wrong tho.

    GD has no reason to downplay EXO or Shinee. He was asked a question and he answered it. He was only speaking about himself and his own group so I don’t understand why people get upset about that. Hey if the shoe fits...

    Well ok and he said they make music that appeals to the public, meaning Shinee and Exo don't. I think it was unnecessary for him to do that.

    GD wasnt talking about solo stuff, he was talking about groups. Jonghyun did write songs for shinee but how many? 10 or so? Compared to the entire discography of BIGBANG. This wasnt a personal attack to SHINee, he was just pointing out what made BIGBANG different from other groups like SHINee and EXO. The same way I wouldn't be pissed if EXO said what made them different from BIGBANG is their hard and polished choreographies. Why should I be upset?

    "There's a time when GD pointed out how Shinee and Exo don't write or compose their songs"--He didn't say that tho...

    His answer is more in general sense. The interviewer is the one that brought up Exo & Shinee specifically.

    "He said (the interviewer), "These days, your competitors EXO and SHINee released albums and are promoting. What do you consider sets [Big Bang] apart from them?" G-Dragon said, "What sets us apart is that we make our own songs, which appeals to the public, and the public likes the songs." .

    Read the whole sentence. He didn't say Exo or Shinee didn't write songs, it's just that they [Bigbang] make their own songs which appeals to the public and somehow the public like their songs. I mean, isn't the recent no promotion, no teaser, no MV release "Flower Road" is a good enough proof of that. They got the public far up in their asses, anything they release will be a hit. Ain't nothing but the truth that is.

    True, but he pointed it out and it was noted. It's a fact and it's bitter.

    Do you ever think that that kind of mindset increases the prejudice against idols and talking generally and not just about GD.

    Prejudice in what sense? I appreciate if idols make their own music since I get a glimpse of who they are through their music but no one really expects for idol groups to write and compose their songs (maybe except for YG, but again, each company has different fortes. No one expects YG artists to have vocal techniques like one would expect from a SM artist).
