Seungri releases explicit music video teaserBy Korea Herald

Viewers need to go through adult confirmation in order to watch the 28-second teaser, which overall has a dreamy ambience much different from the concept of his first solo album released in 2011.
The teaser, which doesn’t feature Seungri himself, shows provocative slow-motion scenes of models and artistic close-up shots of sexually symbolic objects.
“Seungri played an active role not only in composing songs for the album, but also in production, just like for his first album,” YG Entertainment stated on their official blog.
Some of the more risque scenes that have caught viewers’ attention include the scene of a hand grazing a woman’s chest, and a man taking off a woman’s underwear.
The five-member group Big Bang debuted in 2006 with G-Dragon acting as leader and is considered one of the most popular K-pop groups both in Korea and overseas.
All members of Big Bang have come out with solo albums in the past. Especially for members G-Dragon and T.O.P., they have actively participated as a duo as well as individual solo artists, coming out with hits such as “High High” and “Knock Out.”
Seungri’s new track features Big Bang members G-dragon and Taeyang, who each contributed to the production of the new title track. It’s the first time three members got together and took part in the production of a new solo album since their debut in 2006.
“I always wanted to work with them. I imagined it to be very pleasant. The sophisticated beat and instrumental sound were all we needed for the song. I made my part; Ji-yong (G-dragon) wrote the rap and Taeyang composed a wonderful melody,” wrote Seungri on his Facebook page on Tuesday.
Although there has been criticism for the teaser because of its blatant sexuality, many fans showed anticipation for an older, more mature Seungri capable of standing alone as a solo artist like the other members of the group.
Seungri’s “Let’s Talk about Love” is set to be released online on Aug. 19 and the album will be available for sale in stores on Aug. 21.
