YG Entertainment’s boy group BIGBANG recently guested on an episode of CNN International‘s Talk Asia where the topic of mandatory military enlistment arose. As K-Pop idols age into their twenties, many must begin to think about their enlistment in the future.
In South Korea, all male citizens between the ages 18 and 35 must serve approximately 2.5 to 3 years on military duty. This policy affects many K-Pop idols and celebrities who may have to halt promotions to fulfill their military term. BIGBANG fans have begun to worry about the future of the group as many members such as G-Dragon and T.O.P are nearing their thirties.
In the interview, Taeyang speaks about how the BIGBANG members view their future. He tells the interviewer that BIGBANG will go into their next 10 years together with a positive outlook and tackle any tasks or responsibilities that must be done while T.O.P states that he will leave things to destiny.
