According to reports from YG Entertainment BIGBANG members G-Dragon and Taeyang are no longer able to postpone their military enlistments.
The agency reported that the pair are expected to enlist in early 2018. It had previously been rumoured that they would be enlisting before next Spring (in South Korea).
It is still unclear at this time whether Daesung and Seungri will be enlisting at the same time. They are still able to postpone their enlistment dates, however, there is speculation that all four may enlist together in order to shorten the duration of the bands forced hiatus.
At their recent concert at the Tokyo Dome, the four BIGBANG members hinted at G-Dragon’s and Taeyang’s enlistment by telling the audience, “We’re truly sad that once this tour is over, we won’t be able to see you for a short while.”
