“I ruin you and save you” Magical all-rounder Red Velvet Seulgi debuts solo with “28 Reasons”

Red Velvet Seulgi proved her magical charm with her solo debut song.

At 6 PM on Oct 4th, Seulgi released her new album “28 Reasons” through domestic and foreign music sites.

This is Seulgi’s first solo album after 8 years of entering the music industry. Seulgi debuted as a member of SM Entertainment’s group Red Velvet in 2014. Starting with the debut single “Happiness”, Red Velvet has grown into one of K-pop’s top groups thanks to a number of hit songs such as “Dumb Dumb”, “Rookie”, “Ice Cream Cake”, “Red Flavor”, “Bad Boy”, “Peek-A-Boo”, “Psycho” and “Queendom” over the past 8 years.

Seulgi began working on her solo album in earnest from the beginning of this year. Rumor has it that she worked hard to show a more colorful and daring side in terms of both vocal and performance.

Starting with the title song “28 Reasons” of the same name, the album “28 Reasons” were filled with 6 songs boasting various charms, from “Dead Man Runnin'”, “Bad Boy, Sad Girl”, “Anywhere But Home”, “Los Angeles” to “Crown”.

Among them, “28 Reasons”, which was selected as the title song, is a pop dance song in which the groovy and heavy bass as well as whistling sound are impressive. SM Entertainment’s producer Yoo Young-jin co-wrote the song with Sean Kennedy, Johan Fransson, Henrik Goranson, Kriz.

The lyrics feature a character in which good and evil coexist. This character has both pure interest and mischievous playfulness towards the person she likes, raising curiosity about the numerous reasons surrounding her relationship. The lyrics were written by Jeon Ji-eun, January 8th, Cho Yoon-kyung and Yoo Young-jin.

“28 Reasons that ruined you, you don’t have to know/ I have no bad intentions/ You know all 28 Reasons to run away/ So, why are you leaning on me again/ Weird attraction looking at you exhausted, Feel so bad/ I will show you heaven/ I’m not the devil Hate me as you want I don’t care/ The more you break the more you’ll want me”

“I steal your treasure, crush it/ Your impatience makes me laugh more/ Well, that’s love, Sweet and bitter/ I ruin you and save you Make your dreams come true/ Ooh ooh I’m making every rule/ I will take your breath away and give it back to you”

Seulgi’s solo debut is a thing that many K-pop fans have been looking forward to. Seulgi entered SM Entertainment through an audition in 2007 when she was a middle school student. After about 7 years of training, she achieved her debut dream and has been playing the role of an ace as the team’s lead vocalist and main dancer over the past 8 years. Among K-pop fans, she is nicknamed “all-round bear”, which means that she has a visual and charm reminiscent of a cute bear, but becomes cool when it comes to her main job.

Although this is her solo debut after 8 years, she has already continued her activities as a member of Red Velvet and various types of units, so there is high trust in her solo album.
