YG Entertainment’s group Big Bang leader G-Dragon was engulfed in the so-called ‘tusk,’ which means the act of wearing a chin mask while smoking on the street.
On February 24, G-Dragon was involved in dating rumours with the Black Pink member Jennie. He worked as a close associate while working at the same agency, and then developed into a romantic relationship about a year ago.
Accordingly, YG Entertainment, G-Dragon and Jennie’s agency announced on the day to NewsN saying, “It is difficult for the company to confirm their artist’s personal life. Please understand.”
While their fans are so interested about the dating rumours, the controversy over G-Dragon also arose. G-Dragon’s ‘Tusk’ in the photo while they are secretly dating became a hot issue.
As G-Dragon’s photo circulates on the internet, it shows that he is smoking a cigarette with a mask over his chin, revealing his nose and mouth, which is against the standard protocol as the world is still not safe from the Coronavirus. But the controversy grew even more with the appearance of smoking while walking the streets with acquaintances, rather than smoking in the designated smoking area.
As of now, there is no known detailed information about the location where the photo was taken, but smoking in a non-concept ‘Tusk’ in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic is a subject that deserves criticism and many netizens are voicing anger towards G-Dragon.
Accordingly, it is known that one netizen reported that G-Dragon had violated the quarantine rules by smoking ‘Tusk’ and proceeded to raise the issue to the city of Seoul as a suspected violation of the quarantine rules. Afterwards, a shared screenshot of the civil petition he sent to the city of Seoul spread online.
