On August 4, BIGBANG held a press conference for their special 10th anniversary exhibition.
At the conference, the group was asked about their plans for military enlistment. G-Dragon had previously stated that he wished to leave his so-called “top spot,” and now he said jokingly, “I don’t want to leave anymore. I want to stay here for a long time.”
More seriously, he added, “Whenever our country calls us, we’ll go. We don’t know when or who it will be, so I want to show people the five-member BIGBANG for as long as we’re allowed.”
He continued, “We’ll go and do our duty well. It’s the aftermath that’s the problem. However, when that time arrives, we might be older and have changed our minds. Although we will always be BIGBANG, we don’t know what will happen when we come back [from enlistment]. But no matter how long it takes, when I find my confidence again, I’ll definitely reappear in front of the public eye again, right?”
The exhibition will run until October 30. BIGBANG will also be holding an anniversary concert on August 20.
