BIGBANG’s G-Dragon will be enlisting in the military before the month is out.
On February 14, his agency YG Entertainment stated, “It’s true that he has received his draft notice. The BIGBANG members had always been thinking about enlisting as soon as they receive their draft notices. As such, G-Dragon will be enlisting as an active-duty soldier on February 27.”
They added, “He plans on quietly enlisting without an official farewell event in order to prevent any chaos from occurring on scene that day. He will diligently carry out his military service.”
Knowing he would enlist sometime this year, G-Dragon previously expressed his feelings about his upcoming enlistment during BIGBANG’s year-end concert at Gocheok Sky Dome. He said, “Just like how spring comes after winter ends, I hope everyone will stay healthy until then and won’t be sad. We will meet again soon. The five of [us] always hope that everyone will be happy. That is the source of our strength. If you patiently wait for the day we are [all] discharged, day by day, I believe that day will come quickly. Because our love won’t change.”
