Prosecutors prepare to summon G-Dragon to court

Big Bang's G-Dragon will be summoned to an investigation for the violation of the Youth Protection Act and for lewd conduct.

The investigation will focus on G-Dragon's 1st solo concert last year, “Shine a Light”, which exhibited sexual and violent themes, and the fact that it was rated as "strictly prohibited for pre-teens under the age of 12".

The Eastern Seoul District Prosecutor official stated, “We are in the process of collecting and reviewing all the information on the subject matter,” then continued, “We will determine the specific time frame when G-Dragon will be summoned to this investigation after this.”

G-Dragon held his concert last December which included a sexy performance with a female dancer for his song, Breathe.

The prosecutors are seeking for reasons why “She’s Gone” and “Korean Dream”, which were banned by the same Act in November, were still added to the show.

The two songs mentioned are considered not suitable for minors and are prohibited for sale, rent, screening and/or distributing in any channels by this law.

Individuals who are convicted of lewd conduct according to the Article 245 will face fine not exceeding ₩ 5,000,000 and one-year imprisonment and the penalties for the violation of the Youth Protection Act are ₩ 20,000,000 in fines and three-year imprisonment.

A representative from YG Entertainment gave a statement on the issue saying, “YG will assist the investigators in this process and will take care of it on behalf of the client (G-Dragon)" and added, “we will hereby accept the decision and are responsible for the legal action taken according to the Act.”

Playing fast and loose with the law is a dangerous game and whoever allowed GD to perform the songs and prepare the stages he did should suffer the consequences. GD, as a performer and director of his own show, is also at fault in the eyes of the law.

It seems hypocritical for those of us here who routinely appreciate sexy fanfic and sexy pics and half-naked boys (and girls) to be offended with the lewdness of the concert and I can't in good conscience agree that there was anything wrong with his performance(s). Taste and morality-wise, it's debatable whether it should have been shown to young teens. Legally, it seems there is no gray area and consequences will undoubtedly follow.

Im nervous for him.

I'm looking at gd's me2day again and days before the concert, he posted a video of him rehearsing She's Gone. So it's not like people had no idea what he was going to perform. They could have told him at that point that they really weren't going to allow him to perform it, preventing minors from being exposed to "harmful content"

My question is if any 12 year olds actually attended the concert.
lheeyah 6th-Jan-2010 04:51 pm (UTC)
well there was a couple that sat near me who brought their son who looked around 4/5 years old..

Do they have nothing to do with taxpayers' money? If I were Korean I'd be pissed about the waste of funds.

Yeah well this is what you get for trying to be some hardcore new wave poster boy or something. Who was he trying to impress really? I mean, I feel for the legal crap going on, but after the initial "WTF GD NOOOO" I can't say that it shouldn't be expected.

(Also this puts things into perspective for me-- wow maybe he really is a sex maniac after all lol)
rawthorne 6th-Jan-2010 09:27 pm (UTC)
Who was he trying to impress really?

Possibly his fans. Who, I take it, are pretty damn angry there won't be an uncut version of his sex maniac concert.

Harass someone based on their race? 1 million won.

Performing "lewd" acts at a 12+ concert? 25 million won.

Oh okay Korea.
cindel 6th-Jan-2010 06:27 pm (UTC)
I want to know why YG didn't have two concert for GD?
gdlovesbee 6th-Jan-2010 07:07 pm (UTC)
I love how there's one person in here who follows every negative GD thread. LMAO.
