On May 31, various media outlets reported that Big Bang are considering completing their mandatory service around the same period in order to reduce the length of their hiatus. However, YGE soon responded to the rumors with strong denial.
Yang Hyun Suk even stated to OSEN, “Throughout these past 10 year with Big Bang, we have never discussed any plans to enlist during the same time period.” He added,“We are planning to take legal actions against the rumors.”
In addition, another YG representative said, “Big Bang’s oldest member T.O.P. will enlist first, and then other members will follow one by one. In fact, G-Dragon andTaeyang are preparing solo albums for next year.”
