Bringing his personal struggle through music, G-Dragon also confessed that he went through a lot of mental and physical hardships while preparing for his solo album.

"Being a singer has always been a dream from my childhood, but now that I have run toward this goal for so long, I feel like I'm living in a dream,” the 28-year-old rapper, singer-songwriter, and fashion icon revealed during his Seoul concert. “It feels so good, but I sometimes lose track of what is real and what is a dream.

So I'm trying to get back to how I was in the beginning."

G-Dragon also revealed that it will be his last solo tour before he enlists in military service. He also gave thanks to the fans who stayed by his side regardless of what rumors or issue he had faced before and he reportedly asked them to stay.
