It’s the 18th in South Korea, which marks Big Bang leader G-Dragon‘s 25th (international) birthday; and as a gift to his fans and other K-pop observers, the rapper released the first teaser for his upcoming album, Coup d’Etat.


Matching the name of his album, GD appears in a military-style set, set to his trademark red, black and white theme. The white set of visuals is more abstract, but it will be interesting to see how it ties in with the overall product. Some may see this teaser as proof that GD was not in blackface, but others may remain skeptical. However, the colour scheme feels uninspired, especially following B.A.P’s “Badman” teaser images and Seungri’s own solo album teaser.

Readers, what do you think of the clip, and of GD’s impending return?
