G-Dragon, a South Korean singer and rapper who serves as the leader of boy band phenomenon Big Bang, is one of the many Korean idols who have graced high-fashion magazine covers with their alluring charisma and stunning style.

Just recently, the world-famous artist was featured for Vogue Korea’s November issue. The said magazine features G-dragon in three different covers, with each showing off his unique and spunky charm as he sports the Chanel Fall collection in celebration of the new Chanel creative director, Virginie Viard.

This is the first time in four years that G-Dragon modeled for Vogue Korea after his absence due to his mandatory military service. In an Instagram post, Vogue Korea wrote: “To commemorate the era of Virginie Viar, G-Dragon appeared on the cover of <Vogue Korea> in 4 years wearing the Chanel fall collection✨ Videos and pictorials with him will be released soon!”
