He's from Gwangju. He studied at Chung-Ang University but dropped out in 2012 because of his demanding schedule. He's also studied at Gukje Digital University. He has a younger sister named Hana.
When he was young, Seungri participated in several dance competitions. He competed against Taeyang as well as Super Junior‘s Eunhyuk, TVXQ‘s Yunho, and SHINee‘s Taemin. He also appeared on the “Battle Shinhwa“ competition show. He was eliminated but was later recruited by YG as a trainee. He never trained his voice before becoming a trainee.
When YG was forming Big Bang, he briefly eliminated Seungri. Because Seungri didn't want to face his friends and family after failing, he went back to YG and competed against SO–1 (later B2st's Hyunsung) for the final spot in the group, and won. After Big Bang was finalized, YG gave each of the members a pendant. Seungri‘s was a flag with a V on a disc with a ring around it.

When Seungri goes out to restaurants and clubs he often pays the bills, even for his members; he's talked about paying for G-Dragon many times.
