He wasn’t just a celebrity but he was a singer, a well-trained artist, and a pure youth full of passion for music. During the 51-hour long shooting of the music video for the title song, ‘할말 있어요 (Gotta Talk to U), I couldn’t find a single thing that was bad about him. His eyes sparkled like those of a little boy and in every word he said there was a pure passion. Those things lasted in my memories.
There was nothing else I did than to just quietly sit and watch him but when he was on the spotlight I felt proud like he was my son and that’s probably because I was proud of myself for discovering a hidden treasure like Seungri. Since a long time ago, Seungri has caught my eyes and he’s been my only rising star and I surely knew that he would succeed. In the music video set, I watched, looked and observed an artist and a human called Seungri. Just a few hours after I actually met him, he made me feel like we’ve known each other for more than 2~3 years. And he was 150% more mature than how he appears on TV.
The concept of the music video for ‘할말 있어요 (Gotta Talk to U)’ was to film all scenes with a glass between the set and the camera. So the setting time was longer. Since director Han Samin only allows perfect scenes, he tried to make the artist, the camera and the set perfect. Even when there was a single mistake, the professionals decided to film that part again without any hesitation. But Seungri barely made any NGs during the shooting, and even when the camera was off, he encouraged the staff and didn’t leave the MV set. Even a staff that is known to be very sparing with words of praise said to him in awe, ‘Seungri is not a celebrity but an artist.’
The first thing that comes into our mind when we think about Seungri’s 2nd solo mini album [Let’s Talk About Love] is rain. Even on the day when we had photoshoot for album jacket, it was sunny all day but when the photoshoot started, it started pouring. It was the same for the Music video filming day. In a matter of seconds, blazing sun changed into a merciless downpour. On the 2nd day of MV filming, the artist’s waiting room and the MV set was far away and because of the crazy weather all the staffs were busy trying to save Seungri’s hair, makeup and outfits.
Something to look out for in ‘할말 있어요 (Gotta Talk to U)’ music video is Seungri’s fashion. His breathtaking suit styles that were shown in each scene looked like they were exact results coming from Seungri’s DNA. I learned what a subtle sensuality is from his smooth movements in those angled suits. The staffs also worked hard to create hair and makeup that will look good with Seungri’s perfectly hemmed suit.
The music video was filmed in Korean and also in Japanase. Since Seungri himself wrote the lyrics and produced the song, he didn’t make any lyric mistakes during the lip-sync scenes. He never appeared to be exhausted and he always monitored the video himself. He also suggested his own opinions to the staffs and it was very impressive to see him work hard like a professional. I could really feel his true heart of respect to the staffs who are working for his very own song. Those things cannot be made up. There’s a saying ‘Things without sincerity cannot become sincerely beautiful.’ If that’s true, it would only make sense for Seungri’s 2nd solo mini album [Let’s Talk About Love] to shine bright.
