Red Velvet Seulgi previously released an album titled “Monster” as Red Velvet’s first sub unit with fellow member Irene. She now makes a solo debut with her mini album “28 Reasons,” released Tuesday, Oct. 4.
Through this album Seulgi shows her individual artistry. Her solo mini album has a total of 6 songs, ranging from R&B vibes and dance pop songs, each track incorporating the light and dark theme, as hinted through the good vs evil narrative shown in the teaser videos. The other songs in the album are titled "Dead Man Runnin," "Bad Boy, Sad Girl," "Los Angeles," "Anywhere But Home" and "Crown."
The Korean singer described the title piece as a groovy pop dance track with the sounds of whistles, which revolve around a woman who goes back and forth from good to evil. She loves her crush, but at the same time, she wants to play a prank on him. Seulgi chose it as the lead single, as she believed it was the best track that shows who she is and shows off her performing and vocal skills.
Debuting as a solo artist, the biggest difference Seulgi felt was that in the song, the parts were divided and the focus of the music video was divided. Now all the focus is on her. She also mentioned that she liked how she got to be more involved in the process, and the concept can be catered more to her personal preference. Her opinion was also really taken into consideration because this is her own album.
The theme of 28 reasons is of good and evil. When asked how she landed on this theme for her solo, Seulgi answered that she has always been told by her fans that there is a striking difference between her on-stage and off-stage persona. She mentioned that through this theme she wants to show other sides of her. She also thought that through music, she could experiment with her darker side. With the concept of good and evil, she feels like her artistry became more philosophical and hopes this is delivered to viewers and entertaining as well. Moving forward, we can expect to see more of Seulgi’s artistry. This is not the end of her craft as a solo singer.
