Taeyang, a member of top boy band Big Bang, will resume his solo career in October, while another member, G-dragon, holds a solo concert in December.
The head of Big Bang`s agency YG Entertainment, Yang Hyun-suk, posted the company`s plans for the two members on its official website on Thursday.
"Taeyang is going to shoot a music video for his first song "Where u at" this weekend," Yang said.
"Considering the short session for Taeyang`s first mini-album last year, we are mapping out the way to promote his first original album as long as possible this time," he added.
In mid-October, the "Where u at " music video will be unveiled online.
The release date of Taeyang`s original album is not yet decided.
Yang also mentioned the future of G-dragon. G-dragon`s first solo concert will be held at Seoul Olympic Park on the first weekend of December.
Before their debut, both G-dragon and Taeyang had trained for six years at YG Entertainment since they were 12 years old.
In 2006, the two boys finally debuted as members of Big Bang. After acquiring huge popularity with their hit song "Lie" in 2007, Big Bang became one of top idol groups across Asia.
Taeyang made his solo debut in May, 2008. His first single "Hot" was acclaimed by both critics and the public. It sold over 50,000 copies.
G-dragon`s solo debut album was released on his 21st birthday, on Aug.18. All tracks of the album hit No. 1 on K-pop charts after release.
