Leader of popular group Big Bang, G-Dragon, has made it onto CNN's list of 50 reasons why Seoul is the best city.
In an article title, "50 Reasons Why Seoul Is The World's Greatest City", featured on the 25th on CNN's Asian Culture website (CNN GO), G-Dragon was listed at number 30 among other Asian tourist favorites such as galbi (Korean style ribs), jjim-jil bang (mega sauna centers), good looking people, girl groups, and live squid.
