It will bring together T.O.P and pop princess Sarah Geronimo where 20 fans will receive tickets to the "exclusive meet-and-greet session."
Big Bang and Geronimo have been tapped to endorse KakaoTalk in the Philippines. A TV commercial was recently unveiled featuring the two artists.
T.O.P will star in the Korean movie "Commitment," which will be released this year. In the film, T.O.P plays the son of a North Korean agent who comes to Seoul as a spy in order to save his sister.
On the other hand, Big Bang member Seungri is gearing up for the launch of his new solo album "Let's Talk About Love."
“I was in search for a voice that I had never used before. From the first verse of ‘Gotta Talk to U,' you will see a completely different style of my singing,” he said, according to YG Entertainment.
The album contains seven tracks including the title song "Gotta Talk to U," "Let's Talk About Love," Love Box" and "You Hooo!!!"
Seungri added, “As a guy artist, I’d like to be a musician who can appeal to female audience.”
YG Entertainment said Seungri produced the album and wrote and composed the six songs.
G-Dragon and Taeyang helped Seungri write and compose "Let's Talk About Love."
Seungri's album will be released online on Aug. 19 and in music stores on Aug. 21.
