The title song 28 Reasons is a pop dance song with a signature groovy and heavy bass and whistling sound. The lyrics depict a character who has both good and evil inside them and has a pure interest in the person they like with a playful sense of humor appearing and raising questions about the numerous reasons surrounding our relationship.
Seulgi, who has been active not only in Red Velvet activities, but also in unit and collaboration activities such as Red Velvet Irene & Seulgi and GOT The Beat, has firmly established her position as a solo artist through this album. As she has established herself as an 'all-rounder queen' and we look forward to seeing what Seulgi will show in the future.
