Celebrities and pop stars often seek to take advantage of NFTs to better connect with fans through specialized content. However, it’s rare that icons themselves actually make the content, like legendary K-pop star G-dragon. 

Korean pop singer and global style icon Kwon Ji-Yong, more famously known as G-Dragon, is bringing his artistic side to Web3 via NFTs, and his fans are more than excited. 

Delivering Originality

G-Dragon exhibits a refreshing take on NFTs by breaking down his original paintings into collectible puzzle pieces on the BNB smart chain.


The artist’s first collection, Archive of PEACEMINUSONE, will be released on OpenSea on March 21. The series will feature 13,444 unique NFTs that will make up his original painting, Archive 2016. Additionally, G-Dragon plans to release two similar NFT collections following this launch.

Each NFT from G-Dragon’s collection will reward holders with unique gifts and access to exclusive merchandise, games, and more. 


Here’s a quick list of the benefits: 

  • Gifts from the G-Dragon’s fashion line, PEACEMINUSONE. 
  • Exclusive merchandise donning the owner’s NFT. 
  • Early access to ticket sales for G-Dragon’s concerts.
  • Special access to products from PEACEMINUSONE. 
  • Access to G-Dragon’s latest album. 
  • Opportunity to join the jigsaw puzzle game. 
  • Additional benefits for Gift holders like private G-Dragon content. 

G-Dragon is likely releasing the NFT collection in anticipation of his upcoming album. The superstar shared earlier this year that he is working on an album scheduled to release in 2023 after years of silence. The former Big Bang member’s last solo release was the eponymous EP ‘Kwon Ji Yong’ in 2017. 

On the Flipside

  • The K-pop industry is a major adopter of Web3 technology. Many K-pop artists from groups like Modhaus, labels like Cube Entertainment, and more have established their presence in Web3.
