(Update: The North Face cancelled GD&TOP's CF filming schedule but Bean Pole won't change the previous plan because he was not really sentenced.)
It’s just been reported that in light of G-Dragon‘s marijuana scandal, G-Dragon as well as the other members of Big Bang failed to show up for a scheduled photoshoot.
With the exception of Daesung, the members were scheduled to participate in a photoshoot for a North Face advertisement at a studio in Seoul. By noon, all the preparations were complete, and staff members as well as the other models were seen waiting on set.
Unfortunately, due to the breakout of G-Dragon’s scandal this morning, the Big Bang members did not turn up for the shoot.
A staff member revealed, “We’ve just received notification that today’s photoshoot will be cancelled.” It seems with the sudden breakout of the issue, Big Bang has been confined to their homes, and YG Entertainment called in to cancel their schedule.
Netizens expressed mixed reactions, ranging from, “How is this going to affect their other schedules?”, “What about all the staff members wasting their time on set?” and ”Big Bang fighting!“.
On the 1st, Taeyang tweeted an enigmatic message that read, “I might act like I don’t know, but I know it all. I might act like I’m being fooled, but I’m just closing my eyes.”
Taeyang’s message didn’t receive much attention at the time, but after the marijuana scandal broke out, netizens began to wonder if the message was directed towards his group leader, G-Dragon.
Netizens have been leaving comments like, “I think there’s a hidden purpose in this message“, “Did Taeyang know?“, and “This has to be directed towards G-Dragon, right?”

Even if he didn’t know, marijuana is unacceptable because he’s G-Dragon (a celebrity)

Taeyang: “I might act like I don’t know, but I know it all. I might act like I’m being fooled, but I’m just closing my eyes.”

Just because his indictment was suspended, he still used marjiauna. Shouldn’t he be banned from appearing on TV?

Life is one shot
2,028 agree, 346 disagree
484 agree, 73 disagree
It’s even more disappointing for me because I’m a fan. He’s horrible, isn’t he even apologetic to his family, label, and fans?
443 agree, 88 disagree
For KBS and MBC, you’re barred from entering no matter what if you’re caught using drugs. Are you watching? If he’s not banned, then YG definitely used money.
366 agree, 121 disagree
