Filmmaker Kim Tae-yong to Tackle Traditional Music

Film director Kim Tae-yong will take on a new challenge, directing a Korean traditional music performance.

Kim will direct a musical titled "Kkokdu", which is intended for foreign audiences, that will run at the National Gugak Center in Seoul from Oct. 4 to 22. It targets visitors ahead of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

Kkokdu means a wooden marionette used for decorating a bier.

"It will be a musical that combines dance, singing, and Korean traditional music", said a staffer at the center.

G-Dragon Hits Back At Gaon Chart For 'Kwon Ji Yong' USB Issue, Says Company Is Missing The Point Of Making Music

Amid the debate on whether G-Dragon's massively successful "Kwon Ji Yong" should be counted an an album even though it was released in USB form, the BIGBANG leader used his Instagram to speak up about the issue in a very personal message. He also took a dig at Gaon Chart for refusing to accept his album as a legitimate release and questioned the basis on which the company made its judgement.

In his post, G-Dragon questioned how people whom he doesn't even know were able to easily judge what counts as an album. While he did not directly name Gaon Chart on his post, he said that the company was missing the essence of creating and releasing music. He said that the packaging and form is a moot point that people need to get over.
