BIGBANG’s Daesung becomes the fourth member to fulfill his mandatory service in the South Korean army.
On March 5, YG Entertainment announced, “BIGBANG’s Daesung will enlist on March 13.”
What is noticeable about the enlistment date is that it is only a date after Taeyang’s enlistment on March 12.
Daesung, who hoped to enlist on a similar date with other members, volunteered last year. This will make the three members – G-Dragon, Taeyang, and Daesung – serve in the military around the same time.
Previous to the enlistment, Daesung kept himself busy not only releasing a solo album in Japan, but also having an 18-city tour.
Enlistments of the three make Seung-ri the only remaining member for his military duty. He recently announced to release a solo in the first half of the year, while working on promotional visits for his Chinese movie.
“The youngest member Seung-ri, too, wished to enlist about the same time as other members,” said a source from YG Entertainment. “But he plans to enlist later after promotions for the movie ‘LOVE ONLY’ and solo activities.”
