BIGBANG has set the record for drawing in the biggest concert audience in Japan this year, with about double the number of concertgoers as Arashi.
The rankings were reported by Nikkei Style on December 7, and the total was calculated by combining statistics from concerts held from January until October with expected audience numbers in November and December.
This year, BIGBANG is set to perform for a total of 1.86 million people. This astronomical number is a result of the group having been active in Japan for seven months this year, as well as the fact that they also hold the record for most number of concerts held in Japan in 2016.
G-DRAGON and CL made it on the list of HYPEBEAST’s most 100 influential people for 2016.
HYPEBEAST recently announced its list of the 100 most influential people around the world in 2016. G-DRAGON and CL were the only Koreans on the list.

Known for his quirky and experimental style on-and-off the stage, G-Dragon has made himself a front-row fixture and can be seen gracing fashion’s top shows such as Chanel.”
