After exciting all of his fans with the music video for “That XX (그 XX)” a couple of weeks ago, Big Bang‘s G-Dragon has now released the highly anticipated mini album One of a Kind. Among the artists featured on the release is Jaurim‘s Kim Yuna, lending her vocals to “Missing You”, and Nell‘s Kim Jong Wan singing to “Today”.
