Fans of G Dragon, leader of South Korean boy group BigBang, were in for a surprise on Wednesday after the singer’s agency announced his enlistment date.
According to YG Entertainment, G Dragon has received his draft notice and that he will be enlisting as active-duty soldier on February 27.
The announcement also mentioned that G Dragon opted to enlist quietly, without an official farewell, “in order to prevent any chaos” from fans who would want to see him for the last time.
G Dragon is the second Bigbang member to enlist. In February of last year, TOP also enlisted in the military. However, after being embroiled in marijuana controversy, he was kicked out of service and has to re-enlist again.
The boys were last seen together during Taeyang’s wedding with actress Min Hyo Rin.
