Red Velevt’s Seulgi has shared her thoughts about working on her solo album “28 Reasons,” support from her bandmates and more at the press conference of her solo album.
On October 4, an online press conference was held on Red Velvet’s official YouTube channel to commemorate the release of Seulgi’s first solo, “28 Reasons.”
The album “28 Reasons” is the first solo album by Red Velvet Seulgi, who debuted with “Happiness” alongside her group in August 2014.
This album captures Seulgi’s music world, who has been attracting attention through various activities such as with the group Red Velvet, Red Velvet-Irene & Seulgi collaborative works such as “GOT the beat,” and OSTs for more than eight years since her debut.
Seulgi revealed the reason why she decided to release her solo album now, saying,
The album has six songs. First of all, a dark song “28 Reasons,” a pop dance song that expresses innocence and mischievous side as good and evil characters, and Seulgi’s first R&B song “Dead Man Runnin,” which features tension in grand base drops. Against the backdrop of bouncy piano performance, “Bad Boy, Sad Girl (Feat. BE’O)” and “Anywhere But Home” EDM pop “Los Angeles” with a romantic atmosphere along with a disco-style base. The finishing touch will be adorned with a dreamy yet solid “Crown” that expresses the gaze of the person who overwhelms the crowd.
Regarding her songs on the album, Seulgi elaborated,
Seulgi’s title song “28 Reasons” as seen in the music video, looked like a fantasy that captured the depth of Seulgi’s heart in a sincere and colorful way, not like a soft cozy bear atmosphere.
The charming style of whistling and orchestration was remarkable, with the cold yet dreamy vocal sense making the whole space relaxing.
In addition, in terms of the scene, Seulgi’s colorful aura and style seemed to unfold naturally through the connection of pure white and red styling, centering on the sharp black styling combined with the dancer’s group dance.
Seulgi expressed what efforts she made while preparing for her solo album and what points to focus on while watching her music video,
Overall, Seulgi’s first solo “28 Reasons” is a new work that shows the delicacy and fascination she has developed, along with the experience that she has steadily accumulated through various album works for eight years.
Seulgi expressed gratitude for support from her bandmates Wendy and Joy by saying,
Seulgi then shared her expectations from the album, saying,
Meanwhile, Seulgi released her first solo “28 Reasons” at 6 p.m. on October 4 and begin her solo career with the title song of the same name.
