South Korean superstar G-Dragon, real name Kwong Ji-Yong, just recently made a comeback and he broke record after record with his brand new solo album. The 28-year-old rapper, singer-songwriter, record producer, and fashion icon has been in the industry since he was a little kid and he garnered a lot of fans worldwide throughout his career. One of his die-hard fans is Will Smith’s son, Jaden Smith.

G-Dragon’s album was released last week, and his comeback track called “Untitled, 2014” already hit the 12 million mark on YouTube as of writing. Dubbed as the “King of K-Pop,” it only makes sense that his popularity has reached Hollywood celebrities like the 18-year-old American actor and rapper.

Jaden Smith recently revealed that he just couldn't seem to get enough of G-Dragon’s new songs. “The Day the Earth Stood Still” actor shared on his Twitter account the that he’s been listening to the BIBGANG leader’s comeback album.

Jaden moves on from being Hollywood celebrity to K-Pop star?

Supporting and listening to G-Dragon’s latest tracks is not necessarily new for Jaden Smith. “The Pursuit of Happyness” star has previously noted that he wanted to be a K-Pop star and will drop an album of that genre very soon. “And Yes I Will Be Dropping A K-Pop Single In The Next 4 Months,” he tweeted back in April.

That was definitely not the first time that Jaden Smith showed interest in becoming a K-Pop star. As a matter of fact, Will Smith’s son made everyone know that one of his top goals for this year is to break through in the K-Pop industry. “The Karate Kid” actor also shared that G-Dragon is his inspiration and was hoping that he and the BIGBANG star should collaborate in the near future.

Will Smith's son wants to be the next G-Dragon?

Jaden Smith and G-Dragon met back in 2013 when Will Smith and his son visited YG Entertainment while promoting their film, “After Earth,” in South Korea.

The father-and-son tandem even posed with the K-Pop superstar which the BIGBANG leader shared on his Instagram account at the time.

While many are mocking Jaden Smith’s plan to enter the K-pop world, G-Dragon’s comeback album may just very well be the push that the actor needed to pursue his idea. With the tracks presumably on his replay list, this will definitely give him more willingness to try it out finally.

Even though Jaden is mostly known for his acting skills, he has already started a music career but has never actually found success compared to his films.
