I look forward to great synergy, or a ‘big bang,’ through the meeting between the best experts in science and technology and my expertise in the field of entertainment.”

 G- Dragon will remain as a visiting professor for 2 years till June 2026. He will probably conduct a special lecture on leadership for undergraduate and graduate students, sharing his experiences as an artist and providing students with vision and insight into the world.
