Yesss, G-Dragon’s album is coming out in April… I hope. It’s hard to know if these news articles are completely accurate, and no one can tell if YG will switch the date later. BUT, a vague date is good for me.
Of course, we know nothing about the album so far other than that it will be a mini-album. Also, Seungri hints that it will be “drastic and fresh,” which could mean any number of things. But I’ll take it as indication that it’s not going to sound anything like Big Bang.
FINALLY, I feel a little sad because it seems that Big Bang’s group trip to the U.S. has become the GDYB trip to the U.S. I was hoping the entire group would be able to get rest and have fun here, but it seems like things have changed. I wonder if Seungri’s solo activities have kept him from coming (so we can’t look to any improved English from him ). As for the other members, I’ll bet Family Outing is keeping Daesung from coming; similarly, TOP’s work on Iris may be holding him in Korea (or wherever they are filming).
Anyway, here is the article I’m talking about:
G-Dragon will release solo album in April, ‘Drastic VS Fresh’
Big Bang’s G-Dragon (21) will release a solo album in April.
Big Bang, the front-running group of skilled idol groups, gathered attention and gained popularity from the members’ solo activities since last year, as much as they would have as a group. After releasing his solo album last May, Tae Yang, of course, received a lot of popularity from the masses with ‘Look At Only Me,’ and his musicality was accepted as well. Continuously, this year the youngest, Seung Ri, started his solo activities with his solo ‘Strong Baby,’ which is included in their Volume 2 album. Completely different than the cuteness he showed being Big Bang’s youngest, he gathers attention everyday now for being manly and sexy.
In the midst of things, Big Bang’s leader, G-Dragon, will release a solo album and come forth with solo activities in April. Afterward, Tae Yang will visit his fans with a second solo album.
Seung Ri, at a music show recording studio on the 8th, said, “I can’t say what style of music G-Dragon hyung will bring, but I can say this confidently. It will be drastic and fresh.” Additionally he added, “He is planning on going to America with Tae Yang hyung and learning dance. Please look forward to their more improved selves.”
