Apparently BIGBANG (빅뱅) fans will not get the chance to welcome their idols back from the army.
Recently, YG Entertainment came out with a statement asking fans not to visit 3 of the members – G-Dragon, Taeyang and Daesung for their upcoming military discharges.
The official statement was posted on the group’s official website today (Wednesday, 23rd October) that reads:
“Hello, this is YG Entertainment. This is a notice regarding the discharges of G-Dragon, Taeyang, and Daesung in October and November.
The military bases where G-Dragon, Taeyang, and Daesung are currently serving are in the border territory where the African swine fever virus has been detected. In order to prevent further spread of the virus, the quarantine system is being strengthened. And it’s recommended for everyone to refrain from visiting the area.
Civil authorities have also requested extra caution. Therefore, we ask fans to not visit the BIGBANG members’ military discharging sites in order to prevent the spread of the virus and also to ensure fans’ safety. We thank V.I.Ps who have been waiting for the discharges of the 3 members of the group.”
For the uninitiated, G-Dragon enlisted in the military back in February 2018, followed by fellow members Taeyang and Daesung in March 2018.
