K-pop giant G-Dragon won the grand prize at the 6th 2013 Style Icon Awards in Seoul on Thursday.
Known for his charismatic performances and songwriting, the leader of boy band “Big Bang” has been among the so-called best dressers in the pop scene for years. He recently bleached his hair platinum for his music video for “Coup D’etat,” which topped music charts at home and abroad. The singer was named the “Style Icon of the Year” at the awards ceremony held in Sangam-dong and broadcasted in 11 countries around the globe.
“There are so many fashionable people in Korea, so I don’t know if I should accept this award. But I do love that word, ‘style icon,’” the singer said at the ceremony.
G-Dragon and the rest of Big Bang are next scheduled to hold a total of 15 concerts around six cities in Japan, starting in Seibu Dome on Nov. 16-17.
