During a fan meeting on Jan. 8, BIGBANG's Seungri revealed that the members have made some decisions for the new year. G-Dragon then shared that he's quit smoking as part of his New Year's resolution.

Fans applauded G-Dragon's decision to live a healthier lifestyle. He clarified, however, that he still smokes e-cigarettes and that he's just "taking a break for a bit," allkpop reported.

2.      T.O.P
