Seulgi releases thrilling concepts for her solo debut album, '28 Reasons'

On September 13, SM Entertainment dropped the album trailer of Seulgi's October release, '28 Reasons' (aka '2NE8 Reasons'). The album will be released on October 4 and will contain a total of six tracks including the title song '2NE8 Reasons'. Unlike the colorful, girl crush image Red Velvet's usual concepts show, it is anticipated that Seulgi's solo debut album will show a thrilling and more mature concept that is different from her usual music color.

The recently released album trailer alongside the concepts has triggered fans into drawing cinematic parallels between Seulgi's releases and popular thriller projects like the Thai drama, 'The Girl From Nowhere.' Fans are also calling Seulgi an arsonist as the trailer of her upcoming solo album shows her surrounded by fire and destruction that is leading them to believe that the album is her way of telling fans that the old cheerful Seulgi is gone and a new, more mature idol has arrived with the new release.
