Military enlistment may be a sad thing for fans, but BIGBANG shared a strategy so they won’t be missed long.
On December 13th, the members gathered for an interview to promote their third album, MADE. During the interview, BIGBANG tackled the issue of military enlistment and revealed, “All five members were consulting so we don’t have to wait long to get back together.” They continued, “We thought it would great to find a plan that will shorten the time for five people together.” They aim to complete their mandatory service as soon as possible so the group can only have a few members missing for a short time.
An interesting discussion about their contract renewal was revealed. According to G-Dragon, they jokingly suggested, “We were going to enlist together if we did not renew our contracts.”
The members also emphasize that it won’t be the end of BIGBANG but will only be gone for the time being. At present, the members are preparing for various project activities, solo and unit, and will think of more activities to fill during that period.
MADE is one of the last full albums from the group prior to T.O.P’s enlistment early next year. They are also expected to finalize their tenth-anniversary concert on January 7th and 8th.
