On Monday, BIGBANG released their third studio album MADE, their first Korean album in eight years. But with two years of compulsory military service awaiting all five members of the band, only time will tell if the kings of K-pop will ever be able to regroup and continue making records together.

BIGBANG, the biggest K-pop band in Korea, even called the "biggest band in Asia" by the Washington Post, just released their full-length album MADE, complete with 11 songs, including the three new tracks "FXXK IT," "LAST DANCE," and "GIRLFRIEND." Elated fans welcomed the long-awaited release of the band's new record, but with G-Dragon, T.O.P, Taeyang, Daesung, and Seungri all preparing for their two years of military service, the future of Korea's biggest boy band is up in the air. Even if there was to be a a reunion, most fans are accepting the fact that it will be a long time from now, at least five or six years. 

Even G-Dragon doesn't sound too optimistic for a quick reunion, noting that it would probably take a lot longer than five or six years to actually start making and producing songs together. But for the sake of BIGBANG fans in Korea, and all around the world, let's hope that, no matter how long it takes, the boys will get back together after their military commitment, and start creating music together once again.
