[EXCLUSIVE] G-DRAGON will fill the vacancy of BIGBANG… G-DRAGON will make a solo comeback in the first half
Fans will not be able to see the complete team of BIGBANG for some time, but there will be a comfort for them. BIGBANG’s leader G-DRAGON (GD) is now planning to make a solo comeback in the first half of this year.
According to the music industry insiders recently, G-DRAGON is now concentrating on the work for his new album. G-DRAGON writes songs constantly in his everyday life, so he will come back as soon as the new album is completed, rather than setting a specific date for comeback.

The music videos of BIGBANG’s “FXXK IT” and “LAST DANCE” were ranked first and second among K-Pop music videos watched around the world and in the US in December 2016.
BIGBANG will comfort their fans who are feeling sad because they cannot see the complete team of BIGBANG for a couple of years from now, by coming back as solo artists. In the first half of this year, G-DRAGON and TAEYANG will release their solo albums and DAESUNG will kick off his Japan dome tour.
According to music industry insiders on January 13, G-DRAGON and TAEYANG are now working on their solo albums, for their solo comeback in the first half of this year. Along with the solo album release, the two will also hold solo concerts.
