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.”

LOL yeah, I agree but some part of me believes he doesn't have that kind of brains anywhere around him. XD I'm saying this because when shit got real with the court case talk, he came out with a statement saying: "OMG, WE'RE SO SORRY. WE WEREN'T THINKING ABOUT HOW KIDS WOULD BE THERE. WE JUST WANTED GD TO HAVE HIS CONCERT LIKE HE ENVISIONED IT, WE FORGOT, SORRY."

I wish he'd have defended GD a little bit more XD

Oh yeah, I was disappointed when I read that too. But then when you take into consideration how any reply would still get them bashed anyhow, they opted for an apologetic stance perhaps to soften the blow. They might have thought that since the media tends to misquote and take things out of context, taking the defensive might just worsen the situation.

But since the government is now involved, here's to hoping they have prepared more viable arguments for defense if the case leads to that.

Omg, the misquoting thing is the reason I believe GD never speaks up in his own defense. Reporters aren`t always on your side =/ I`ve this before so I will say it again: Reporters are professional netizens.

I find his silence is often misinterpreted as him laughing and finding all the hate against him hilarious.

I don`t think that`s the case. It`s just that talking and explaining wouldn`t get through to the majority anyway.

Anyway, yeah... I really hope YG gets some guys on his side that know their shiz and can defend GD properly =)
