G-Dragon in Military
If you’re new to the world of K-pop, you probably don’t know about this rule and law in Korea. Korean men above 27 years old are obliged to serve in the military service for 2 years. This obligation is for everyone without exception, unless there are some conditions that allow them to be freed from the obligation. Idols are no exception, including the kings of K-pop, BIG BANG.
Four members of BIG BANG, T.O.P, G-Dragon, Tae-yang, and Dae-sung, are currently doing their military service and will be discharged in 2019-2020. The first one to enter the military was T.O.P, followed by GD, and then Tae-yang and Dae-sung. GD, who is the leader, enlisted on February 27th this year. He’s serving in the third Infantry Division recruit training that is located in Cheorwon, Gangwon Province.
Lately, pictures of GD from his military service have been released and spread among fans and K-netz.
The pictures show him with his complete uniform, bare face, and the thing that becomes a very hot topic: his precious smile! VIPs are relieved because he looks healthy and happy while being away from the medias.
Let’s hope that he will finish his obligation well and come back soon!
