G-Dragon Honored to be Imitated by Top Pop Acts Worldwide


Flo-Rida, Oasis, and Katharine McPhee have joined the list of artists who have paid tribute to Korean pop geniuses.

Big Bang leader G-Dragon, shown here:

Has had a youtube video circulating that proves his place in the pantheon of the world's great, original artists, as tributes from other artists pour in, in the sincerest form of flattery: imitation.

DokdoIsOurs can only say it is certainly not surprising, given the brilliance and originality of Korean pop, that artists around the world would aspire to imitate them.

It is certainly not the first time Korean media have been imitated in other countries, as these eerily similar movie posters demonstrate. (source) (images)

And here at Dokdo Is Ours, we are certain it will not be the last, either.

Another good example is this video by MC Mong that is a shameless copy of the fantastic song by UNKLE (DJ Shadow and Thom Yorke) "Rabbit in your Headlights"
