Based on statements from YG Entertainment, G-Dragon and Taeyang of BIGBANG will be enlisting in their mandatory military service in the first half of 2018.
Daesung and Seungri are able to defer their enlistment still, so it is unclear whether they will join Taeyang and G-Dragon as they enlish. There have been discussions and interest expressed by some that they would enlist together to shorten the group’s hiatus.
Currently, Taeyang is planning his wedding prior to his enlistment. The group will holst their last concert; BIGBANG 2017 Concert ‘Last Dance’ in Seoul at the Gocheok Sky Dome on December 30, 2017 and December 31, 2017, marking their last performance before enlistment.
