Seungri, a member of the K-pop group Big Bang, released his second mini-album “Let’s Talk About Love” at midday on Aug. 19.

The title song, tentatively named “I Have Something to Say,” features fast-paced house music. The accompanying music video was shot by renowned director Han Sa-min, who was behind Big Bang’s “Blue,” “Bad Boy” and “Monster.”

Seungri made his debut when he was only a 17-year-old. He is now grown up enough to show off his brand new image through this album, having contributed his talents to composing the music and writing the lyrics.

“Let’s Talk About Love” was uploaded online on Aug. 19, and Seungri will meet fans on Thursday.

Meaningfully, the day Seungri released his new mini-album is also the seventh anniversary of Big Bang’s debut.

YG Entertainment, Big Bang’s agency, unveiled the celebratory poster for their seventh anniversary, which features a picture of Uranus, the seventh planet from the sun. Seungri posted on his Facebook, “Although there were so many happenings in the seven years that we went through, they made us more mature.” He added, “Big bang’s seventh anniversary will be the monumental day that my new album is coming out.”
