Their last studio album as a group is “”, which was released in December 2016.
Recent report said that Daesung, G-Dragon, Taeyang and Seungri would all next year in the spring. While Daesung and Seungri have some time left before the deadline, they reportedly decide to enlist together with the older members so that Big Bang can come back together as a group as early as possible.
G-Dragon, whose real name is Kwon Ji Yong, said at his “Act III: Motte” concert in Seoul last month, “I’m enlisting in the army next year. This could really be my last time. I’ll be 32-33 years old when I get back, will you be okay with that?”
Daesung, meanwhile, told fans during a concert in Japan back in August, “When I am done with promotions this year, I might have a long hiatus. But I think it’s the best choice for Big Bang to have a new start.”
