What qualities should the leader of an idol group possess? [G-Dragon]

* The Oldest

* Representative: I can talk and represent the group

It is essential that the leader can clearly represent the group and each member. (omission) Big Bang’s G-Dragon is the one who meets up to this standard.

* Potentiating the Uniqueness: ‘My group is different’

Often the member who can portray the character and the uniqueness of the group becomes the leader. The main example is G-Dragon of Big Bang. The fact that G-Dragon, who can compose, write lyrics and produce tracks, potentiates Big Bang’s quality as ’skilled dance group whom can produce own music’. Their music plays a key role in differentiating Big Bang from other idol groups.

* The Order of Acceptance: Experiences count!

Sometimes, it is important to count how long it has been since the member joined the company, or the duration spent as a trainee. For example, G-Dragon of Big Bang debuted when he was 8 years old as ‘little rula’, and became a trainee of YG entertainment when he was in grade 6. Another example is Sunye from Wondergirls who became a trainee of JYP when she was in grade 6.

The reason why they could be the leader of their groups, is because they are the one who understand the system of idol groups the most. The leaders are the one who can relate between the group and the company.

Of Course, you cannot be a leader with only one or two of these qualities. Usually the leaders of idol groups of present day possess almost all of these qualities to fulfill their duty as leaders. The most important, and the most basic quality is undeniably the understanding and care that can heighten the harmony between the members.
