Its no secret that G-Dragon (the Korean rapper, singer, songwriter, producer, and model) has a lot of fans. Entering the entertainment industry at the young age of six has allowed GD to create his huge fanbase- especially after his debut with the Korean group Big Bang. GD has a number of awards under his name, has single-handedly shaped many of the trends in South Korea, and is known world-wide. What is there left to do?
Be a pillow, apparently.
For the price of about $57, you could own your very own GD Hug Cushion. If you are one of GD’s many hardcore fans, we want to hear from you. Would you sleep with this pillow or have the fans gone a little overboard?

How many times have you heard this one: “Ya know, [insert Asian group here] are the Irish of Asia!” Well, this St. Paddy’s Day, I’m turning this around. The Irish are the Asians of Europe, and to celebrate, we’re making soju cocktails.
We recently got a bottle of Ty Ku Premium Liqueur in the office (strictly for professional test kitchen purposes). Besides its nifty light-up bottle, we were intrigued by the company’s claim that the liqueur only has 72 calories per serving. Now, I’m not the biggest soju fan, but I could get my St. Paddy’s day off to a good start with Ty Ku Premium Liqueur. It’s soju, but it’s mixed with Asian super fruits like mangosteen and goji berry, which are full of antioxidant good stuff. And when you’re looking forward to the one night of the year where drinking is celebrated, you need all the antioxidants you can get.
But the best part is that each Ty Ku cocktail purportedly has just 100 calories per serving. Much better than the pint of Guinness I was planning on nursing the whole of the night. My Asian eyes will definitely be smiling. What are your St. Patrick’s Day plans?
1.5 ounces TY KU Liqueur
0.25 ounces Soju
