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.

He said that the packaging and form is a moot point that people need to get over.
