Before heading off for his military service late last month, South Korean pop icon and leader of boy band Big Bang, Kwon Ji Yong (GD), bade farewell to his fans in Southeast Asia and gave them a parting gift to remember him by.



The singer-songwriter and rapper designed a gift package, which will be available in Southeast Asia exclusively at the one-of-its-kind GD Official Store on the leading eCommerce company Lazada.

Dubbed “The Floral Pathway”, the package comprises such memorabilia as a GD hand-printed mug and bracelet. These items are wrapped in a fancy floral-motif box that was also designed by the star. 

The floral motif is GD’s tribute to his flowers, as he calls his fans, and conveys the hope that they will walk down the road to happiness. More than 7,000 gift boxes are up for grabs in Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Indonesia. In Thailand, they become available on Tuesday (March 13.) 

To rev up excitement levels across the region, Lazada has invited fans to share their favourite GD song on its Facebook fanpage and explain why that number meant so much to them. Fans are also encouraged to hold gatherings that will be streamed live online and play games to win prizes and bid their idol farewell. They are rewarded from today through Sunday (March 11) with a chance to win limited edition souvenirs from GD. To enter, post a public comment about GD on Lazada’s Facebook Fanpage (https://www.facebook.com/LazadaThailandShopping) with the hashtags #GDLimitedEdition #KwonJiYong and share the post to their own Facebook Page, tagging three friends who are fans of GD or Big Bang. 

The winner will be announced on Monday (March 12) and the winning comment wins its writer a special GD souvenir.
