In 2012, PSY parodied the socio-economic situation of the titular neighborhood and went viral with “Gangnam Style.” Now, in 2018, former labelmate Seungri is here to follow in his satirical footsteps in the viral-ready music video for “Where R U From.”
Released on The Great Seungri on July 20, “Where R U From” features WINNER’s Mino and is a groovy EDM track built to be danced to, which is just what Seungri, Mino, and a whole crew of dancers do in the music video. But not before turning the song into the soundtrack for 2018's political scene.
Caricatures of President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un take center stage, while other world leaders also make appearances in the music video amid a lifelike political summit that is set to end in shambles. To sort things out, "The Great Seungsby" rides in on a horse and saves the day, and potentially the world, by making his way into the meeting amid a shouting match. Declaring himself the face of YG Entertainment, the BIGBANG member takes control of the situation, and then breaks into the song’s dabbing and galloping-filled choreography.
