BIG BANG is enlisting?! YG Entertainment clarifies rumors
Rumor has it that all five BIG BANG members will enlist in the military together when it’s T.O.P’s time to go. On Wednesday, June 1, 2016, a rumor spread that G-Dragon, Taeyang, Daesung, and Seungri were “discussing whether they would register for the military when T.O.P’s enlistment date gets confirmed,” according to Donga News. The rumor seems to stem from the sad truth that the oldest member T.O.P, who’s 28, must join the military by early next year at the latest.
But YG Entertainment has never discussed the possibility of all five members joining the military simultaneously, the agency clarified. An unnamed YG staff told Ilgan Sports that BIG BANG will continue to produce songs even when some of the members are in the military.
However, BIG BANG fans are wishing for the boys to just enlist together, since this would shorten their absence from the music industry significantly.
“If we’re going to talk about that, we’ll feel sad,” G-Dragon told The Washington Post during the M.A.D.E. tour in Tokyo in March. “We are Korean, so we have to go someday, but I don’t know when it’s going to be. Until then, we’ll just try hard to do what we've got to do.”
