Singer G-Dragon participated in the cover design for Choi Yong-ho, CEO of Galaxy Corporation, the head of his agency.

Yongho Choi, CEO of Galaxy Corporation, graced the cover of the February issue of FORTUNE KOREA, the Korean version of FORTUNE, an American global economic magazine.

Galaxy Corporation singer G-Dragon (real name Kwon Ji-yong) personally participated in the cover design. In the cover designed by G-Dragon, Chief Happiness Officer (CHO) Yongho Choi was introduced with the title of 'Tech Maestro'.

The cover designed by G-Dragon was entirely embroidered with daisy flowers, including the FORTUNE logo. The flower language of the daisy is 'peace and hope', and it is also a symbol of G-Dragon's fashion brand 'Peace Minus One'. And in keeping with the word 'GALAXY', which means space, the design connects daisy flowers like stars in the universe.

If you access the QR code hidden in the daisy flower at the bottom right of the cover, you can see the video version of the cover designed by G-Dragon himself.

Yongho Choi, CEO of Galaxy Corporation, unlike existing entertainment or tech companies, is producing convergence content that combines super IP and technology as an AI metaverse specialist. It has as a subsidiary the production company that produced <Physical 100>, which ranked first in the world in the entertainment category on Netflix, <2 Days & 1 Night>, which won the grand prize at the 'KBS Entertainment Awards', and <We Must Come Together to Win>, and as of 2023, it will produce about 20 different entertainment shows. A program is being produced.

Yongho Choi, CEO of Galaxy Corporation, said in an interview with Fortune Korea, "Our company will introduce to the world content technologies such as music, concerts, and commerce that combine future new technologies based on AI and metaverse." In addition, the story behind G-Dragon's recruitment and the reason for visiting CES and Speardome in Las Vegas, USA were revealed.

G-Dragon, who moved his agency to Galaxy Corporation, Korea's first AI metaverse company last December, appeared at 'CES 2024', the world's largest home appliance and IT (information technology) exhibition, on the 9th as his first public move.

Meanwhile, the collaboration between Fortune Korea and G-Dragon took place last December when Fortune Korea editor-in-chief Yoo Boo-hyuk proposed a cover design to G-Dragon, and G-DRAGON accepted. Fortune Korea explained, “G-Dragon participated in the design to celebrate the cover interview of Choi Yong-ho, the head of his new agency.”

Regarding the creation of this cover design, G-Dragon said, "I was happy to be able to participate in an interview about the vision and dreams of my new agency, Galaxy Corporation," and added, "I designed the cover of the longest-running and major American business magazine, founded in 1930. “It’s an honor to do it,” he said of the production.

The February issue of Fortune Korea, for which G-Dragon participated in creating the cover, will be published on the 26th.
