G-Dragon will release solo album in April, ‘Drastic VS Fresh’

2009-01-09 7:47:26AM
[OSEN=Lee Jeong Ah reporter] 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.”

    and Tae Yang second album :O!!!!!

  51. i got so excited i had to pee.

    that’s all i have to say XDD

  52. I’m excited too, but I feel like they’re growing apart. Everyone’s got their own thing. Mother of God, if they break up, I don’t know what to do with myself. However it’s a good thing to express their individualism, just hope they don’t get too comfy being soloists.Bigbang will never break up right? I’m just talking crazy, right?

  53. Definately gonna buy both albums! OMO! Tae Yang and GD’s solos are prolly going to be hot. Super excited.

  54. kwon ji yong is coming to the u.s. and releasing a solo album?!? im so excited! good luck to gdragon and big bang!!
    i love kwon ji yong ❀
    does anyone know where they will be going to in the u.s.?

  55. one word….
    EXCITED…n_n! mwwwwwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!
    Go GD! the album would be like GDLISTIC! so hot…hot…GDLISTIC!
