[OSEN=김은애 기자] YG Entertainment’s YANG HYUN SUK raised attention on BIGBANG SEUNGRI’s solo track, ‘WHERE R U FROM’.
On July 30, YANG HYUN SUK uploaded SEUNGRI’s MV poster on his social media and wrote, “#SEUNGRI #BIGBANG #WHERE_R_U_FROM #MINO #MV #OUTNOW #YG”.
He emphasized by adding, “YOU_WILL_REGRET_NOT_WATCHING_THE_VIDEO”.
Along with SEUNGRI’s comeback, the MV for the title song ‘1, 2, 3!’ was released with his album on the 20th. However, the MV for ‘WHERE R U FROM’ was kept in veil, raising the curiosities of fans.
The MV released on the 27th starts with a global summit conference scene, while the parody of president Donald Trump of USA and Kim Jong Un of North Korea’s meeting captured the viewers’ attention. While representatives argued and raised voices during the summit, SEUNGRI arrives in a black horse, wearing a military police uniform.
WINNER’s MINO appears after SEUNGRI as a featuring artist, wearing a North Korean military uniform, and everyone at the scene starts dancing while the summit becomes a party.
The MV was directed by producer Park Junsoo, who directed ‘YG Electronics’. His unique B-rated emotions flooded within the MV, adding more joy.
Billboard responded by spotlighting SEUNGRI’s new MV with an article titled, ‘BIGBANG’s Seungri & WINNER’s Mino Mock Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un in ‘Where R U From’ Music Video: Watch ‘.
Billboard introduced SEUNGRI’s MV by writing, ‘SEUNGRI’s MV is an obvious political satire, among all MVs released in K-Pop’.
In fact, the MV mocked not only president Donald Trump of the United States and Kim Jong Un of North Korea, but also reenacted a scene from the movie ‘JSA’, with MINO wearing a North Korean military uniform.
Billboard added, “While PSY’s MV in 2012 parodied the socio-economic situation, SEUNGRI’s MV in 2018 satirically described the global political situation”.
SEUNGRI is currently working hard on preparing for his first solo concert ‘SEUNGRI 2018 1st SOLO TOUR [THE GREAT SEUNGRI] in SEOUL x BC CARD’ which will be held through August 4~5 at 6 PM in Seoul Jangchung Gymnasium.
