Hello Airbnb guests! This is your host, G-Dragon. For five of you special friends, I'm going to completely welcome you into Dukyang Studio, which is filled with my memories from over ten years of music and dance training. Right now the studio looks just like it did when I was a trainee, but I'm transforming it into a home for us to get to know each other better! I'm going to fill it up with everything that inspires me like fashion, music, toys and cartoons. Dukyang Studio is in the Hongdae neighborhood which is known for its artistic spirit and local underground music. I can't wait to welcome you into my Airbnb! Please make sure to check the detailed Terms & Conditions to see if you're eligible to participate :)
Interaction with guests
I became a big fan of Airbnb when I traveled as a guest to shoot a music video. I've decided to be a host and create this unique listing so I can share a once-in-a-lifetime experience to meet some new friends. I wonder what kind of memories we will create together?
Dukyang studio is full of stories about my music, dance, art and philosophy that I would love to share with you. But that's not all. We'll be having dinner at the famous cafeteria of my music label YG Entertainment which has been featured in TV shows for its delicious authentic Korean food. And I will prepare a special itinerary for you so you can explore Seoul and my neighborhood, G-Dragon style!
Make the other guests feel like they belong
No scribbling over the art ☺
