“I Will Be Back” … Daesung Enlists with a Bright Smile
Group BIGBANG’s Daesung (29·Kang Daesung) enlisted in the ‘Ikija’ 27th Infantry Division recruit training center.
On March 13, 1:35 PM, Daesung entered the ‘Ikija’ 27th Infantry Division recruit training center located in Hwacheon, Gangwon-do. He will start his active military duty for 21 months after completing his basic military training.
After arriving at the scene, Daesung greeted his fans who came a long way to see him off with a bright smile. In front of the reporters, he stated “I will be back. (Fans) I love you”, and entered his assigned base.
Daesung is the third member of BIGBANG to be enlisted as an active soldier. G-Dragon entered the 3rd division on February 27, while Taeyang enlisted in the 6th division on March 12. They enlisted within a month, which can be interpreted as their will to come back with all members as soon as possible, by minimizing their vacancy gap.
According to related officials from YG Entertainment, Daesung wished to enlist when other members start enlisting, and therefore volunteered to enlist last year.
Born in 1989, Daesung made his first debut as a member of BIGBANG in 2006. He was loved by the public not only with his unique and strong voice, but also through his charms in various TV broadcasts.
He was also successful as a solo artist, and has released multiple single albums. His album released in Japan back in 2014 was also a huge success.
Meanwhile, BIGBANG will release their new single ‘FLOWER ROAD’ on March 13, which is an unreleased track created with their enlistments in mind.

‘Deep Bow+Waves Goodbye’ BIGBANG Taeyang Enlists While Fans·YG See Him Off… Min Hyorin Will Wait
Group BIGBANG’s member Taeyang (Dong Youngbae) walked into the base while his family and fans saw him off.
On March 12, 1:50 PM, Taeyang entered the ‘Blue Star’ 6th Infantry Division recruit training center located in Cheorwon, Gangwon-do. He will start his active military duty after receiving basic military training. He will secure the Gangwon battlefront along with G-Dragon who enlisted in the ‘White Skull’ Division, and Daesung who will enlist in the ‘Ikija’ Division.
The fans waited in front of the base from the morning, waiting for Taeyang’s arrival. Since the weather got warmer since G-Dragon’s enlistment date, people wore lighter clothes while waiting for him. The fans held slogans that stated, “We’ll wait for you”, and held plan cards that read “Let’s Meet Again”.
Taeyang waved his hand to the fans and smiled. He even performed a deep bow on the ground, showing his affections and respect towards the fans. The fans responded by yelling “We love you” and “We’ll be waiting”.
It is known that Taeyang’s wife, Min Hyorin, also saw him off. She did not appear at the scene, however. The couple became husband and wife at a wedding held last month in a church located in Gyeonggi-do. Min Hyorin will wait for Taeyang and support his active military duty in good health.
YG Entertainment’s Yang Hyun Suk also supported Taeyang’s enlistment. He uploaded a selfie taken with Taeyang and wrote the caption, “#I love you_Youngbae #Come back in good health”. He also uploaded a poster of BIGBANG’s upcoming single, ‘FLOWER ROAD’ which will be released on the 13th. Taeyang also uploaded the poster on his Instagram, while saying goodbye to the fans.
BIGBANG’s enlistment rush will continue further until the 13th, the date when Daesung enlists. Four members of BIGBANG including T.O.P who’s serving as a public service worker, G-Dragon who enlisted 2 weeks ago, Taeyang, and Daesung will be serving military duty. YG Entertainment will release ‘FLOWER ROAD’, a new song by BIGBANG for the fans on the 13th and will release the ‘LAST DANCE’ concert DVD later, which was successfully held last year.
