Big Bangmembers G-Dragonand Seungri have gained attention after commuters spotted the idols taking Seoul"s public transportation on separate occasions.
On May 19, a fan published photos taken of G-Dragon which suggested that the Big Bang leader had taken the subway, reports Koreaboo.
It was not immediately apparent that it was G-Dragon due to him wearing a mask, shades and a camo hat. But as suspicions grew and online commenters began to scrutinize the photos, G-Dragon all but confirmed the rumors by posting a single-journey ticket for the subway on his Instagram account.
"I want to see Big Bang on the subway too," said an online commenter.
On the same day the G-Dragon was spotted on the subway, Seungri also uploaded a selfie on Twitter which showed him taking the subway but will less disguise; he only wore a pair of aviator shades.

The two were reportedly taking the subway to reach the airport from which they flew out to Jeju Island to shoot another music video.
While some fans wanted to have ridden with G-Dragon and Seungri, many others shrugged at why the incidents were even newsworthy.
"G-Dragon and Seungri are experiencing what it likes to be a commoner while this is every day life for me," said one online commenter, as translated and compiled by Netizenbuzz.
"Hey, I took the second subway at 8 AM this morning to work, where"s my article? Thought my guts were going to explode with how packed it was," "So what," said two other online commenters, garnering more than a thousand likes each.
