Big Bang to enlist in the military at the same time?

Arguably the most fearful words for any male idol group fans: military enlistment. It seems like the inevitable moment isn't too far for VIPs, as media outlets have begun reporting on Big Bang's mandatory service requirements. 

It seems like G-Dragon, Seungri, Daesung, and Taeyang are all considering enlisting around the same time as the group's oldest member T.O.P

By end of this year or the beginning of 2017, T.O.P needs to enlist in the military, as he can no longer delay his mandatory service. In order to prevent Big Bang's hiatus being prolonged, the other 4 members, who also have to enlist sooner or later, are planning to serve in the military around the same period.

While the other 4 members have the option to delay their enlistment a little further, the members evidently believe that enlisting together at once is the best option. It's terrifying to imagine a couple of years without Big Bang, but it seems like they are trying their best for V.I.Ps.

YG denied this . He comfirmed GD and YB's solo for next year and that each member will enlist separatly

I think this is best for them and for VIPs. FTISLAND also plans to enlist at the same time. It would just be as though they were preparing for a new album anyway.

they should release something new early next year, like jan - march, then Enlist. and then make Teddy create sick songs and Big Bang come back end of year 2018. so doesn't look like they were gone for a while (it is 18 months for military duties right? I may be wrong though)

I believe it's 18-25 months.

always repeat the same thing...

That's a smart move. Though I would like them to have individual promotions..but cool. At least they'll be back in two and half years or so. I can't wait for their comeback it'll take a while but worth the wait 😄

It may be actually a good solution. Only 2/3 years. And they can go back to making music. Because after 5 years it may be hard to continue as a group.

I'd much rather have them go in separately.  this way we won't get to see them together for at least 10 years.  By then maybe ikon or winner will be the new kings.

But if they enlist together, you could be sure that they'd /all/ return at around the same time. If they went individually, they may be able to promote as a solo artist or sub-unit but they won't be together as Big Bang for longer, if you get what I mean.

obviously. but that's not what the article says and that's not what YG just said.

Guys it's only two years plus VIP is a really strong fandom they won't break that easily we're known as fans who always have to wait and be patient cause yg be trolling us all day everyday ahahha! It's not like they're gonna be gone forever THEY WILL BE BACK, STRONGER THAN EVER and we will be there to support them every step of the way as we are loyal fans! This is not the end (when they go that is) they will be back :) #BBFTW I think going altogether is a great idea cause that means they'll be back together sooner pluuus I'm sure they'll love being in the army together so they won't feel lonely ;) woo!!~

Where are the sources for this? I think is the best they could do. To go together and finish together . we wouldn't have to wait for years till all of them finish their service. Just do it guys!
