BIGBANG’s Seungri opened up about some of his concerns at his first-ever solo concert.
On August 5, Seungri shared his thoughts on holding his first solo concert, “The Great Seungri,” at the Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul.
The singer remarked, “It’s my first solo concert in 13 years as [a member of] BIGBANG. I’ve performed at over 500 concerts and performed for crowds of over tens of thousands of people, but while rehearsing at the Jangchung Gymnasium, I wondered why it felt so large, and I became scared. However, so many people came that my worries disappeared in a flash.”
He added, “There were many unexpected things that happened before this solo concert was officially scheduled, but I wound up being able to hold a solo concert like this in the end. I feel like I’m receiving too much love. Thank you. I hope that you have fun with me until the end.”
Speaking about the pressure of being the last BIGBANG member to enlist in the military, Seungri shared, “To be honest, I had a dream last night before my concert today. I was the starting pitcher at an important baseball game. At the end of the ninth inning with two outs, the umpire handed me the ball, and it felt so heavy.”
He continued, “But I threw the ball, pitched a strike, and led the team to victory. I think it was a dream that describes my current situation. I think it means that, as the only BIGBANG member [currently promoting], I need to do a good job wrapping things up in order for us to win.”
