If you've never been to Hongdae in South Korea, there's no better time to go than now. Not only is it home to Seoul's arts and youth culture, it also houses Korean rapper G-Dragon's second home — and thanks to Airbnb, you might very well be able to stay in it.
That is, if you're one out of five lucky fans from China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea and Southeast Asia. Today, Airbnb announced the superstar's generous plan to host five contest winners in his Dukyang studio, where he developed his career in his Big Bang days. And like any good, reputable Airbnb host, he has specially designed the space for his guests, and plans to tour them around his home and take them around the neighbourhood he grew up in, as well as his favourite areas in Seoul. Expect an intimate dinner at the YG Cafeteria (where Justin Bieber also visited) as well as countless selfie opportunities — that is, if you can convince him to take his sunnies off.
Winners should be on their best behaviour, for this host will leave a review on their Airbnb accounts as well. A word of advice to G-Dragon's team: Beef up security checks.
For a chance to win, visit G-Dragon's listing on Airbnb and submit a write-up of no more than 300 words/300 characters (in Japanese, Mandarin or Korean) describing how you would connect with someone from a different cultural background before midnight on August 29 (Korea time). The prize also includes an economy class return flight ticket to Korea.
