Beenzino recently greeted his fans through an Instagram Live!
The rapper is one of many celebrities who will be discharged from the military in 2019. During the Instagram Live, Beenzino expressed his concern about being discharged. He shared honestly, “Now that I’m about to be discharged, I feel lost and confused. I’m also scared now that I’m about to leave.” He also talked about his fear of having to receive recognition for hip hop again, but added that he didn’t really need to be acknowledged by others.
He continued, “Will I be able to do well after I leave? Should I just stay? Should I become a staff sergeant? If I become a staff sergeant, I thought, ‘Won’t I be the first [among celebrities] to take that path?’”
However, he added, “But Stefanie told me not to do it. The concern has already ended. She asked how I could do this to a gomshin (a person whose significant other is in the army),” showing his affection for his girlfriend Stefanie Michova.
Beenzino also talked about celebrities he’s seen in the army, including BIGBANG’s Taeyang and Daesung, Joo Won, and Go Kyung Pyo. While talking about them, he asked, “Don’t you know Goon Bang?” which is a nickname for the “Military idol group” consisting of himself and the previously mentioned celebrities.
The rapper shared that he’s also seen ZE:A’s Im Siwan and 2PM’s Taecyeon, and he also talked to rapper Don Mills, who Beenzino jokingly said is afraid of his senior.
Beenzino will be discharged on February 28!

He said that Daesung prefers to sleep early, but Taeyang is a real chatterbox and every night he talks Daesung to death because Daesung is too kind to say that he wants to sleep hahahah

Basically they’re talking about how Daesung gets sleepy by 10pm so he falls asleep even when Bennzino wants to chat with him. On the other hand, Taeyang likes to talk a lot so they spend the late night just chatting away.
