Walang duda, ang South Korean boy band na BIGBANG pa rin ang isa sa maituturing na sikat na K-pop group sa Pilipinas.
Bilang isa sa pioneering K-pop group at sa kabila na ang pinakabata sa grupo na si Seungri lamang ang aktibo ngayon dahil ang lahat ng miyembro ay kasalukuyang naka-enlist sa military, nagulat kami nang makita noong Biyernes, July 20 na ang #TheGreatSeungri bilang Top 1 sa Philippines Trending sa Twitter.
‘Yun pala, ini-launch na ni Seungri ang kanyang comeback solo album, ang The Great Seungri na ang isa sa title track ay ‘1,2,3!’
Ilang oras bago ang launching, nag-post si Seungri sa kanyang Instagram account at nagbigay ng mensahe sa kanyang mga fan.
Ayon sa singer/businessman, “If I was determined to not let fans feel BIGBANG’s hiatus as much as possible as the youngest member who was left on his own because of the members enlisting, then I believe it was the hyungs‘ support that became a huge driving force behind the completion of my solo album.
“The best team has been by my side and helped me so that my first solo album in five years could improve and make up for my shortcomings.
“I want to sincerely thank Yang Hyun Suk, Teddy, Future Bounce, and all the people who have helped me with this album.
“I promise to appear in front of everyone more experienced and matured. I think I would be very happy if many people could support and love my solo activities with ‘The Great Seungri.’”
Nagpahayag na rin si Seungri ng planong pag-e-enlist sa military sa isang taon sa naging interview sa kanya.
Aniya, “I hope to enlist early next year and reunite with the other members as soon as we can. I hope our fans will keep watching over us and supporting us because we will try to make the hiatus short.”
