Yup. That’s GD, Taeyang and Se7en shirtless. Don’t you just love Summer?
I was born in Summer. Wonder if that’s why I’m so into Pop. Summer is the beginning of the Pop season cycle. The time the big movies and the big songs that have been in the works all year finally get released. And I have to say for me this year, summer belongs to my KPop Company bias, YG Entertainment!
Thanks to ibigbang (the main source of BB news for my lazy behind) I have learned that we are to be expecting releases from no less than Taeyang and Se7en!!!!!!!!!!!! To quote directly from their site:
“After that rumor that Taeyang’s album would come out on June 25th, YG himself has finally spoke up and the YG Entertainment site has confirmed that Taeyang’s first full album is coming this July 1st. As well as his title track and music video.
The album will be a full album with 13 songs, including his past hits “Look only at me” and “Prayer“. The album will be titled “Solar“, as opposed to the rumor that it would be called “Real”.
There is two versions of this album, the “Deluxe edition” and the “regular edition”. The regular edition only brings 11 songs, while the deluxe edition will bring the 13 songs.
Starting on June 25th to June 30th, on Taeyang’s official YG homepage, a 1-minute teaser will released of one of Taeyang’s new song.
EDIT: Coincidently Se7en’s new mini album is scheduled to be released on July 21st so a clash in promotions between these two singers that work under the same entertainment company, YG Ent, is going to be inevitable.

June 25th: 1 min Teaser for Taeyang’s new song
July 1st (My Month!!!!!!!!): Taeyang’s Album “Solar” drops!!!!!!!!!!! ><
July 21st: Se7en drops his new mini album!!!!!!!!!!
I’m just about rolling all over the floor in anticipation!!! Let the countdowns begin!
TOP: 1 day
Taeyang: 11 days
Se7en: 31 days
I have to say I am especially excited about Taeyang’s album since it was his music and amazing dance skills that ushered me into the world of KPop. The rumour that Shaun Evaristo, the choreographer behind the “Where You At” video is once again involved is also giving me palpitations. I just know whatever they come up with is going to just BLOW. ME. AWAY!!!!!!!
I’ve been meaning to do a proper spazz on Taeyang since I went all KPop but have just lacked the time but now, pls expect one!!! This occasion has to be properly celebrated!!!
Meanwhile, enjoy the concept art that has already been released for Solar!
