Following his recent unfair drug allegation, BIGBANG iconic rapper-songwriter G-DRAGON decided to build a foundation with drug eradication purposes. Join us as we unravel everything you need to know about JUSPEACE and see what GD wants to achieve in his noble deed.
BIGBANG G-Dragon Establishes Drug Eradication Foundation, JUSPEACE
BIGBANG G-Dragon decided to sign with Galaxy Corporation after suffering an unavoidable betrayal from YG Entertainment during his drug allegation case. In his first steps of working with the new company, G-Dragon revealed his detailed plans for JUSPEACE, a foundation he built for drug eradication purposes.
On December 25, OSEN reported G-Dragon’s specific plans regarding his JUSPEACE foundation. This announcement is a follow-up action after announcing his plan through a handwritten letter at the press conference with Galaxy Corporation.
After being acquitted of his unfair drug allegation, BIGBANG G-Dragon felt the calling to support the victims related to drugs. This becomes the main reason why he decided to establish JUSPEACE.
“Having experienced this event, I witnessed something entirely new to me.
I came to understand a profoundly saddening reality: each year, around 20,000 people are found guilty of drug offenses, and there’s a troubling rise in young people involved in drug-related crimes. Yet, astonishingly, fewer than 500 of them have access to treatment in rehabilitation centers.
I’m motivated to tackle these drug issues, especially for vulnerable young people and those who are unfortunately heading in a harmful direction. I aim to provide access to treatment for those who lack it. My goal is to contribute meaningfully, acting as a guardian, whether as an elder or younger sibling or even as a coworker.
Through these efforts, we can sow the seeds of a dream for a world without prejudice. By promoting campaigns for peace and a world free of bias, and by engaging in various activities alongside talented artists and fans globally, we can foster a vision of unity and understanding.”BIGBANG G-Dragon.
All About JUSPEACE
In the follow-up announcement, the fashion icon G-Dragon eventually unveiled details on his drug eradication foundation, JUSPEACE.
According to the announcement, JUSPEACE stands for JUSTICE and PEACE. It is the main value of the foundation that they also put into the slogan: protecting the peace and love of justice / justice of love. The same slogan was also GD’s closing remarks in his recent letter.
In addition to establishing the JUSPEACE foundation, BIGBANG G-Dragon revealed the foundation’s initial funding of 300 million KRW (231,356 USD). This funding came from the BIGBANG rapper alone, but he donated the name of VIP, BIGBANG’s fandom name. This funding also reflected GD’s gratitude for the endless support from his fans he previously stated.
“I managed to get back on my feet, all thanks to the VIP who supported me like it was their own concern right from the beginning and showered me with love. Because of them, I never felt drained or alone. I’m truly thankful to you all.”G-Dragon.
The CEO of Galaxy Corporation also announced JUSPEACE’s main purpose: to build a society free from prejudice through GD’s music.
“This foundation has been set up with a solid resolve to build a society without discrimination, guided by the music of Kwon Ji-Yong, also known as G-Dragon. Its activities will be in line with this purpose. The first major project of the foundation will be dedicated to combating drug issues and providing treatment for young people struggling with addiction.”Choi Yong Ho, CEO of Galaxy Corporation.
BIGBANG G-Dragon and His Future Plans with the Foundation

Furthermore, he aspires to stand with those suffering from prejudice and injustice, promote awareness and solutions for social issues, and work towards creating a fair society where everyone treats others equally.
