Gaho invites you to GD's $920,000 hotel in the countryside

GD's parents bought land in the countryside a few years ago with a view to building a vacation home for themselves and GD. They decided to build a pension (a small boutique hotel) instead.
The construction was financed entirely by GD as a gift to his parents. The hotel has 11 rooms, all named after Big Bang's songs including one room called Crayon, reserved for the exclusive use of GD himself.  The rooms were all decorated by GD and his mother. Currently Kwon Younghwan (GD's father) and Gaho are living at the hotel and running it with the help of manager Huh Eunmae.

The bedrooms and public rooms feature portraits of Big Bang and GD, BB figurines and dolls, etc... The pension has a plunge pool and luxurious bathrooms with hydrobaths. Two of the rooms are split-level suites, one featuring a private roof terrace with an outdoor jacuzzi.
GD and YB have already stayed at the pension and 2NE1 are supposed to visit soon too. The pension is already taking bookings and enquiries from all over the world.

However there is a catch: you must be at least 19 years old to stay there, presumably to avoid issues with young teenage fans.


I didn't want to spam Omona, please click on the source for full-size pics.

OP: what does Omona think about the decor? I like it except some of the chairs look cheap and flimsy.

(mods, I double-checked and this is not a repost)

it's cute, a bit boring design-wise but nothing too unconventional to ensure a steady income of customer$. which i understand, because gd made this to help his parents keep working and finance their living.

all of my uncles have been forced into retirement by their companies at younger and younger ages it's kinda crazy. like the youngest has been at 50

i think GD is pretty smart with managing his money with his parents. not sure which TV show it was, but i remember him mentioning that when he first started getting the big paycheques he had bought commercial properties for his parents to collect rental incomes.

though i think it would be much better in the long run for their new B&B to not actually use Big Bang as a marketing ploy to lure in guests and instead run it like a proper vacation home business.

they could probably always change some of the interiors later on when BB are old news/washed up haha? it doesn't look like there is a giant member's portrait painted on every wall of every room (maybe just one wall per room...???)

it makes sense for /now/ though that they use big bang as part of the draw for the pension, because fans with deep pockets will drop mad $$$$$ for the opportunity to stay there and just glimpse a member or two
