With the news of Monsant Cafe under new ownership announced, G-Dragon’s agency released a statement on January 13th about it and also clarified the “chandelier” incident.
According to YG Entertainment “Monsant Aewol, known as GD’s Cafe, was sold late last year. It’s currently being managed by others under a different name.”
They added “The issue regarding the damaged chandelier, which circulated on the internet not long ago, has nothing to do with G-Dragon. The installed artworks owned by G-Dragon were already moved out a long time ago while closing the cafe’s sale.”
In October last year, a user’s post on an online community became a hot topic. He wrote “I broke the chandelier in G-Dragon’s cafe which costs about 300 million won. GD asked me to pay for the repair fee and he’d pay for the chandelier’s parts. As expected, this is why I’ve always liked Taeyang more than GD! I guess I would have to pay 300,000 to 500,000 won to repair that. Isn’t my accident covered in the insurance?” YG Entertainment didn’t say anything about the issue at that time.
Meanwhile, YG Entertainment has announced that G-Dragon is currently working on his new cafe at the YG Republique inside Jeju Shinhwa World. They said “G-Dragon will open a new “GD cafe” and a bowling alley this February and March. With the interiors at the finishing stage, G-Dragon is currently staying in Jeju personally monitoring the installation of his private artwork collection, painting inside, etc.”
