On his long-awaited return, Seungri said, “There are no plans for me at YG. Everything always happens so suddenly. Yang Hyun Suk has never before weighed in so much on my album. He checked my walking, and even the quality of the tires on my car.” The singer put forth a funny chart promise for his comeback: “If my nine songs line up on the charts, I’ll contact the 1,600 people in my phone to have them line up at an ice cream shop.”
Seungri also asked G-Dragon, who has over 16 million followers on his Instagram, if he could borrow the account to promote his album. “He just cursed at me,” said Seungri. But the BIGBANG members love him, and periodically contact him, saying that they miss him and love him.
Seungri shared a story of when Taeyang, who had gotten a phone call as a reward for good performance, had used the call to contact Seungri. When Seungri joked that Taeyang should be calling his wife Min Hyo Rin instead, Taeyang said that she comes to visit him every week.
