Group Big Bang’s Taeyang released Music Video of title track “Eyes, Nose, Lips” and the second full album.

On June 3, the second full album and Taeyang’s MV were released on YG Entertainment’s official blog and online music store in Korea. Even though it’s been 4 years after he released the first full album, it is gaining huge popularity.

First of all, title track “Eyes, Nose, Lips” ranked top on the total 10 of Korean online music stores including Melon, M.net, Bucks, Daum, Olleh Music and others. Also, other 7 songs in this album entered top 10 on the music charts.

Yang Hyun Suk, a producer of YG Entertainment came up with the idea for MV “Eyes, Nose, Lips” in 11 years after he produced girl group Big Mama. A phrase of “Un Amor” which is tattooed on Taeyang’s neck, means one love. The MV is started with close-up of his tattoo, and continue to show Taeyang’s eyes, nose, and lips slowly. It represents rising of sun like his album title “RISE.”

Moreover, the neat directing focused on Taeyang, singing with doleful face, maximize the emotional vocal and amplify the charm of music. The burning photo of a woman gave a hint about the next MV of “1AM.”

On June2, Taeyang was surprisingly appeared on the Fan premiere events “RISE PREMIRE” which was held at a theater in Seoul. On this day, Taeyang showed up at the beginning of this event which was aimed at some of VIP fan club. Taeyang said “I’m glad to see you again. You can look forward to my new album as you have waited for a long time. It is good enough to wait for 4 years. Please give a love and support to it.”

Taeyang’s offline album will be released officially on June 10.
