Q: How do you feel after seeing the results of this collaboration?
GD: This is exactly what I wanted. Not only females will be excited and wanting it when they see the shoes, but also males to be excited when they see it. The shoes that will be able to stir up both males' and females' feelings.

GD: I agree. I have an obsession with collecting shoes since I was young. Until now, the last thing I will check before I leave my house is my shoes. Just by looking at a person's shoes, you can tell a person's sense of orientation etc. To the extent that shoes are a very important life companion.
Q: If you were to give this pair of shoes as a gift, who will you give it to?
GD: I want to give it to the BIGBANG members.
