Big Bang Releases Webtoon Series In Korea, Japan & The United States
Big Bang and their pets, the GO Blings, will entertain fans through new webtoon series.
Big Bang’s own webtoon series have been released on July 20th in Korea, US and Japan. The series, GO Blings, was co-produced by YG Entertainment and KT to show the daily lives of the band members along with interactions with their goblin pets, the GO Blings. The pets were modeled after each Big Bang member and they are the stars of this series.
Kirin, the artist behind GO Blings, is a huge Big Bang fan and delicately incorporated the individual characteristics and personalities of each member into their respective pets. For example, GD’s pet, Shu, is a cat goblin designed as a shoe to give tribute to the idol’s shoe collecting hobbies as well as his fondness for cats. The Instagram account of GO Blings has their profiles as well as cute and hilarious portrayals of the idols themselves. It has been active since early 2017.
안녕 난 슈야, GD의 펫이지! 난 원래 고양이 도깨비였는데, 어쩌다 보니 신발 안에 들어오게 되었어. 동이 트기 전까진 조심해야 할거야, 반짝이는 물건을 훔치는 내 실력은 월등하거든! Hi I'm Shu, aka GD's pet. I am originally a cat goblin but happen to be in a shoe. And I am known to be a master of robbery so watch out until dawn! #BIGBANG #character #goblings #goblin #newproject #GD #GDRAGON #shu #YG #빅뱅 #캐릭터 #고블링즈 #지디 #지드래곤 #슈
