G-Dragon To Begin His Military Service On February 27
Less than two weeks before G-Dragon says goodbye for a while.
Fans of BIGBANG’s G-Dragon will have about two weeks to prepare themselves for the inevitable “see you again” as he begins his military service on February 27.
YG Entertainment confirmed on February 14 that the leader of BIGBANG has received his notification for enlistment and will join the army as an active duty soldier.
The agency added that G-Dragon’s enlistment will be done in private. “He will quietly enter a boot camp without making public its location,” said YGE.
G-Dragon will be the second member of BIGBANG to enter the army for his mandatory military service after T.O.P.
Taeyang, who is the same age as the BIGBANG leader, is also expected to begin his compulsory military service this year.
Last year, G-Dragon successfully wrapped up his second world tour, Act III: M.O.T.T.E, with over 650,000 people in attendance, making it the largest tour by a Korean solo artist.
Before his tour, the BIGBANG leader released his self-titled extended play. Kwon Ji Yong was released as a USB flash drive instead of a traditional compact disc.
“Untitled, 2014” was promoted as the lead single of the album. Initially, “Bullshit” was intended to be the album’s title track. However, due to ongoing controversies and the song’s provocative title, YGE opted to use “Untitled, 2014.”
Kwon Ji Yong was a commercial success in South Korea and abroad, topping all major domestic music charts, and recording the most number one in iTunes chart in 46 countries upon its release.
G-Dragon was also named the idol with most copyrighted songs. He wrote most of BIG BANG’s hits, including “Lies”, “Lasy Farewell”, “Fantastic Baby”, “Bang Bang Bang”, and “FXXK IT.”
He also performed his last concert with his members Daesung, Taeyang, and Seungri at the BIG BANG 2017 CONCERT <LAST DANCE> in Seoul last 30 and 31 December 2017.
