G-Dragon, the leader of the BIGBANG, celebrated his 31st birthday on Aug. 18 and the following day on Aug. 19, the boy group marked their 13th anniversary as singers. The group debuted in 2006, and it made history by becoming one of the most successful Kpop acts around the world.

G-Dragon, TOP, Taeyang, Daesung, and Seungri were also the first Kpop idols to receive recognition from international music award-giving bodies such as the MTV’s EMA (Europe Music Awards) and more. Since then, the younger generations of Korean boybands have been recognized as well as BTS, GOT7 and EXO.

TOP’s birthday greeting

BIGBANG’s oldest member, TOP or Choi Seung Hyun, posted a photo of himself and G-Dragon and captioning it with a simple greeting of “Happy Birthday GD!” The two have been friends for a long time so his post is very touching for the fans. Then again, the photo doesn’t exist on TOP’s Instagram anymore as he already deleted it for some reason.

BIGBANG’s anniversary

Fans paid tribute to the group by posting photos of them as a five-member group and this trend worldwide.
