GD&TOP’s Logo Gets A Makeover!

GD&TOP, Big Bang‘s only project group (so far), will be re-releasing their first album next month to commemorate their brand new logo!
YG Entertainment put up a notice today regarding GD&TOP’s new official logo:

Hello, this is YG Entertainment.
Thank you for sending so much love to GD&TOP’s first studio album that was released last year on December 24.

GD&TOP’s bunny-shaped logo, as GD & TOP have mentioned in multiple interviews, was designed for the Zodiac year of the rabbit and used the image of a bunny’s ears with a fist making a V for victory sign, inspired by the Playboy Enterprises International Inc.’s bunny logo.
However, the company did not receive permission from Playboy, who owns the trademark rights to the owner, so the logo is not at all associated with Playboy Inc.
Therefore, due to the resulting confusion and polite requests from Playboy Inc., we have decided to stop using GD&TOP’s bunny logo.

YG Entertainment went on to announce that all albums with the bunny logo will be halted and a “NEW COVER” version (with all the same content) will be released in July.
You can bet that VIPs are already scrambling to buy up the last of the first edition albums with the original logo before they go out of stock forever.
We’re loving the new look and all, but what’s going to happen to GD&TOP’s bling-bling bunny necklaces?!
Which logo do you like better?
