It's only a matter of days until VIPs send G-dragon off to the army.

YG Entertainment finally revealed through a statement that the BIGBANG member is scheduled to begin his active duty on February 27. “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. 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.”

At the end of last year, the 29 year-old star offered words of encouragement to fans who'll miss BIGBANG as they serve their country. “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," he said at BIGBANG's concert at the Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul.

"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 reunited, day by day, I believe that day will come quickly. Because our love won’t change.”

G-dragon's fellow bandmate Taeyang decided to get married to the love of his life earlier this month. BIGBANG and other celebrities joined Taeyang and his new wife actress Min Hyo Rin for their special day. He is getting ready to join G-dragon in the military on March 12. Member T.O.P is currently serving as a public service worker. We're still waiting for news on Seungri and Daesung's enlistments in the future.
