On Wednesday, Feb. 14, YG Entertainment officially announced G-Dragon‘s enlistment. After receiving his draft notice, the BIGBANG leader and one of K-pop’s veritable legends decided to fulfill his mandatory military service starting on Feb. 27.
Along with members Taeyang, Daesung and Seungri, GD (birth name Kwon Ji-yong) successfully completed BIGBANG’s “LAST DANCE Tour” at Gocheok Sky Dome. He will be the second of the BIGBANG members to enlist, TOP entering the military on Feb. 9, 2017.
Though VIPs will be beside themselves with the urge to see him off, GD declared he wishes to enlist quietly.
*EDIT: The previous title dated GD’s enlistment as the end of January. That has been retracted and corrected.*
