Led by Gil Smith II, the music director that has worked with Britney Spears, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne and more pop stars, professional band staff with shining resumes will be supporting G-Dragon.

Stage design will be taken over by Michael Cotten, who has decorated the stages of the Super Bowl, the Olympics and Michael Jackson′s world tour.

Videos will be directed by the visual contents producer Possible Productions.
