SEOUL, March 8 (Korea Bizwire) — Popular boy band BIGBANG will put out an unpublished song performed by all five of its members for the first time in about a year, the group’s management agency said Thursday.
“BIGBANG will release a song produced in its entirety,” YG Entertainment said in a release. “As Taeyang and Daesung are set to enter the Army after G-Dragon, it will be happy news to the group’s fans in and out of the country who are saddened by the group’s break.”
It will be the first new single from BIGBANG since the full-length album “Made” came out in December 2016.
The group will be unable to remain active for at least two years due to their military duties. In South Korea, all able-bodied men have to fulfill their military duty for around two years.
Team leader G-Dragon joined the military on Feb. 27 to become the second BIGBANG member doing military service. Taeyang and Daesung are scheduled to be admitted into boot camp on Monday and Tuesday, respectively, leaving Seungri as the only BIGBANG member yet to serve. T.O.P is currently doing public service as an alternative to army duty.
