There are only a few people each year that make a real impact on the world, and this year’s “GQ Korea” picked two Korean idols as people of the year.

Big Bang’s leader G-Dragon was one of GQ Korea’s Men of the Year, while soloist IU was the only person picked as GQ’s Woman of the Year. Both artists were by the Korean magazine, where they discussed the past year.

GQ Korea chose IU and G-Dragon as award recipients based on all the achievements the pair accomplished in 2015.

Based on the successes of Big Bang and his solo artistic ventures, GQ Korea picked G-Dragon. In his interview, G-Dragon discussed his love of experimental art, the success of Big Bang, his role as a fashion icon, and his first venture into the physical art world with his “Peaceminusone” art exhibit.

The Big Bang member also highlighted how his role as a member of the group can’t be separated from his his solo successes.

“BIG BANG is everything. G-Dragon is BIG BANG. In 2015, BIG BANG was such a huge part of my life.”

G-Dragon was one of two people chosen as GQ Korea’s Men of the Year, along with actor Jung Jae Young.

IU was chosen by GQ Korea based on her career as a singer and the success of her “Infinite Challenge” song “Leon” and her album, “Chat-Shire,” along with her role in the drama “Producers.”

In her interview, IU also discussed the criticism surrounding her album “Chat-Shire” and the song “Zeze.”

“I don’t want to conclude, ‘This is right and that is wrong’ about the interpretations on the song,” said the singer. “Since my own freedom is important, if I want to protect that, I have to protect other people’s freedom to interpret the song…That doesn’t mean that you can conclude that I’m a pedophile. There’s a difference between interpretation of a song and criticism towards the person.”

Both artists will perform at next week’s Mnet Asia Music Awards (MAMA) in Hong Kong.
