With most of Big Bang off completing their mandatory two year military service, fans of the K-Pop mega-group will have to be satisfied with one off singles from previous recording sessions and albums from the one member still out in these streets… Seungri!
While not the most well-known member of Big Bang, Seungri gets a little credit for holding the group down and keeping them in the public eye during their hiatus with the release of his latest, The Great Seungri. I was admittedly not feeling “1, 2, 3!” upon the first listen. His vocals seemed nasal and I was expecting more of a punch from the chorus. However, the visual makes all the difference in this case as the video is everything I love about K-Pop.
Big budget, high production value, impeccable styling and choreography that references ballroom and Grease, “1, 2, 3!” is an ambitious undertaking that succeeds and impressively manages to make it look effortless… and in what appears to be one take to boot! It’s a feel good jam that gets better with each listen and the video stands up to repeat viewings as well. Nothing else on the album is as sonically interesting so be thankful for the summer bop that is “1, 2, 3!” cuz that Big Bang reunion is still a few years away.
