G-Dragon’s Military Discharge Location Changed Due To Safety Concerns
Only one day left until G-Dragon is officially discharged from the military!
On October 25, YG Entertainment revealed, “G-Dragon will be discharged from Yongin instead of Cheorwon.”
As G-Dragon is currently completing his military service in Cheorwon which is located in Gangwon Province, he was originally supposed to be discharged there on October 26.
Previously, YG Entertainment asked fans not to visit BIGBANG members on their discharge dates due to safety reasons. The agency stated, “The military bases where G-Dragon, Taeyang, and Daesung are serving are in border territory where the African swine fever (ASF) virus has been detected. In order to prevent further spread of the virus, the quarantine system is being strengthened, and not visiting this area is being recommended. Civil authorities have also requested extra caution, so we ask that fans refrain from visiting for their discharges in order to prevent spread of the virus and for the safety of fans.”
Despite the official request, it is anticipated that many fans will still come to see G-Dragon. Therefore, G-Dragon will be discharged from Yongin which is located in Gyeonggi Province.
Fans can look forward to G-Dragon’s return tomorrow. Taeyang and Daesung will be discharged in November.
