Kobo Abē’s novel – later adapted into a movie – The Face of Another explores the change a man goes through as he dons an extremely lifelike mask following an accident that mars his face. The doctor is clearly nervous, and yet the feeling’s tinged with the excitement of discovery and playing God. He warns Okuyama donning the mask would change how he acts and how he behaves.

G-Dragon criticized the music industry on not taking his USB as an 'album'.
He posted on Instagram, "What's the problem? Is it really it if someone who I don't even know decides that an artist's product is not an album or not? Of course there are ups and downs of such a decision through basic reasoning, but [music storage] has changed from tapes to CDs to downloaded files... Even now, everything is changing on the outside. However, isn't the important thing the melody that won't change even after time has passed, that will stay in the ears and mouths of people, and stay as memory in their heads, as well as lyrics that comfort people and let them have fun or be sad together?"
In response to the recent announcement from the Korea Music Content Industry Association that G-Dragon’s new album, which will be released offline in USB form only, cannot technically be acknowledged as an “album,” G-Dragon responded on Instagram.
He said, “What’s The Problem?
“Is that it, if someone who you don’t even know decides that an artist’s work ‘is an album’ or ‘is not an album’? What’s the reasoning behind that point of view?
