During an episode of Mnet‘s TMI News, they took a look at the most expensive fashion items idols have worn, and BIGBANG‘s G-Dragon topped the list.
This didn’t surprise the cast members too much, as G-Dragon is one of the biggest fashion icons in Korea. When G-Dragon went to the military, the outfit he wore went viral.
When looking at some of the most expensive fashion items he’s worn, they found that the watch he wore for the 2016 SBS Gayo Daejun was the most expensive fashion item an idol has ever worn. The watch is made by French luxury brand Richard Mille.
The brand is quite popular among celebrities, as they often release special edition watches for them.
The one G-Dragon wore was a Michelle Yeoh edition.
The watch was created to celebrate the release of the movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny, which Michelle Yeoh starred in.
The watch is extremely rare, as only five of them were released.
When the cast members saw the price of the watch, they were shocked. The watch costs around 547 million KRW (~461,687 USD)!
However, the watch has gone up in price due to resale value, as it went up to around 800 million KRW (~675,399 USD) in Hong Kong.
