TaeYang of BIG BANG Plans to Serve in the Military by Next Year

All men, except for those who are exempted, are to do one’s duty in the military when over 19. Ordinary men serve in the military at around 19 ~25 average, however, for celebs, they have tendency to push the duty until 28~30 because of their busy schedule.

TaeYang of BIG BANG has told his plans to serve his time to the country by next year in a concert in Japan. By next year he would be 30 in Korean age and the number 30 is sort of a marginal line.

He said that he is currently working on a new album, the last one before military service. This year, he’d be focusing on his 2nd world tour, which started from this 9th of July. It is known to be his long dream to perform in a stadium since he became a singer. In the latest concerts, he thanked the audience for giving him such opportunity to achieve his dream and sang 18 songs with great energy. 

Though we won’t be seeing much of TaeYang next year, let’s just try to enjoy what he has to give us now.

He’d be having a concert in Japan from August 5th ~ 6th, and in Korea on 26th ~27th of the same month. It’s been three years since he last had his concert in Korea.
