HONG KONG (AP) — The King of K-pop says reigning on a solo tour is a challenge but one he wouldn't want to miss.

G Dragon says performing with his group Big Bang "feels like a collaboration" and there's more variety to what they can do in a show.

Big Bang is immensely popular throughout Asia. But G Dragon says that he keeps himself grounded by remaining grateful for what he's achieved. He says he and the other Big Bang members discuss how their music creation helps them cope with changes.

He says, "I try to live a life without regret" and tries to stay fresh.

The singer spoke while in Hong Kong on his first solo concert tour, "One of a Kind." He's performing later in Shanghai, Bangkok, Jakarta, Indonesia, and Singapore.
