BIGBANG’s Daesung has confirmed his army enlistment date!
On March 5, it was announced that Daesung will be enlisting in the military on March 13, a day after fellow BIGBANG member Taeyang. In the past, Daesung had expressed a desire to begin his military service around the same time as the other members, so he applied for voluntary enlistment last year.
Daesung had a busy year in 2017. Not only did he release a solo album and go on a 18-city tour in Japan, but he also held multiple concerts with his fellow BIGBANG members.
With G-Dragon already enlisting on February 27, this means that three out of the five members will be beginning their military service in under a month. T.O.P is currently fulfilling his duties as a public service worker, and youngest member Seungri is busy with news of a solo album on the way for the first half of 2018.
A source from YG Entertainment stated, “Seungri also wanted to enlist around the same time as the other members, but his Chinese movie ‘Love Only’ is scheduled to be released on March 2 and he has also been preparing a solo album. He plans to voluntarily enlist after he has completed his scheduled activities.”
