Seoul, Korea – Yang Hyun-Seok “Seungri mini-album is ‘ambush’…beyond expectations”
Announcement of future plans for Big Bang and Seungri made through YG’s official blog on the morning of the 30th
Yang Hyun-Seok, founder of YG Entertainment and its popular groups Big Bang and 2NE1, described Seungri, who will be temporarily pursuing solo activity, as a “hidden talent.”
Yang announced Big Bang and Seungri’s plans for next year through the YG official site on the 30th.
Yang also wrote that “he had announced a while ago that Seungri will be releasing a digital single on the 3rd of January and that a Big Bang album will be released on the 1st of February, but there have been some changes in their schedules.”
Also, Yang added, “This would be good news for the fans in Korea. Since a Japan tour for Big Bang had been planned for next April, we had decided to release their new album on February 1st for a two-month promotion before the tour. As a result, promotion periods of G-Dragon and Seungri’s albums were shortened, but fortunately the tour was able to be moved back a month.”
Yang also explained that “Big Bang was able to secure more time on their second promotion of the duo debut album GD&TOP, which they will be doing through one of its tracks called ‘Don’t Go Home,’ and that Seungri was able to change his plan for a digital single into that for a mini-album.”
On Seungri’s mini-album, Yang commented that “he has carefully watched the mini-album preparation process and thought that Seungri was like ‘a soldier in ambush’ since he had for the first time participated in the composition and lyric making of all the songs with the help of newly recruited producers and because some of the finished songs sounded better than he expected.”
The expected release date of Seungri’s first album is January 13th.
