G-Dragon made a rare public appearance in the lead up to his enlistment this week, to open his new cafe on Jeju Island.

Alongside YG CEO Yang Hyun Suk, he posed for photos and gave his first greetings of the year to the gathered fans and press in which he said:

"Hello, This is Kwon Jiyong. It's the first time of the year to give my greetings at an official event. I'm nervous. Firstly, while preparing I had a lot of lacking points, I received a lot of help from President Yang, so that we can open (the cafe). I think of it as a relief that I can attend this event before my army enlistment that is happening soon. More than anything, I'm more concerned about (the cafe) rather than being a 'GD cafe' but I hope it will be a place where you can always come to visit and rest comfortably. Please give it a lot of interest. Happy new year. And I will return safely." (Source)

Looks like there's a lot of personal touches in the GD cafe for fans to enjoy!
