Article: [Exclusive] Big Bang to enlist together?... members agree to minimize hiatus

1. [+657, -28] I'm most curious about whether GD will serve active duty or not
2. [+647, -44] GD and TOP are 100% going to serve in public service
3. [+437, -23] Every man in Korea must serve in the army but celebrities get praise for going active duty but even then some do all they can to get out of that
4. [+33, -5] Why do I feel like GD doesn't match army service at all ㅋㅋㅋㅋ I want to see him in service
5. [+22, -2] I bet Big Bang's army hiatus will be shorter than the hiatus between their albums ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
1. [+2,681, -45] Yeah, please just enlist all together if you guys are going. We've waited hiatuses of three years even though it wasn't for the army so we can handle it ㅜㅜ
2. [+1,776, -43] Yeah, that seems like a good idea ㅠㅠ
3. [+1,653, -35] They have to serve anyway so they might as well enlist together and cut down on the hiatus for their fans... It seems like a good idea but it did seem like their CEO wanted them to serve separately which would take 10 years before the group is whole again ㅠㅠ I hope the members push with their decision to serve together
4. [+1,116, -34] I can wait so don't worry and serve ㅠㅠ
5. [+210, -6] Big Bang rarely promotes on TV anyway so a hiatus of a year and 8 months probably won't even feel like a hiatus to fans ㅋㅋ

1. [+186, -6] It'd be so much better to just enlist together and cut down on hiatus
2. [+164, -18] Whatever the case, I think GD will be in public service no matter what
3. [+47, -6] Just send them all together. It might suck at first but it's the fastest way to make the group whole and promoting together again. That's why YG should've paid more attention to supporting rookie talent instead of relying on Big Bang so much. Look at SM, TVXQ makes up a bulk of their income but they have so many more stars to rely on that TVXQ could enlist at the same time.
4. [+11, -4] If they all enlist in active duty together, it'll do so much for improving their image and cut down on the hiatus time before they're whole again. You only serve once, why not make it the best?
5. [+7, -0] I wonder how much they're hating having to serve right now ㅋㅋㅋ
1. [+1,236, -7] They have long hiatuses anyway, why can't they all serve during?
2. [+565, -7] What the.. this is a mess of communication
3. [+414, -9] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
4. [+307, -20] They have to serve anyway, just go at the right time~~~ but I did hear from others with experience that enlisting at the same time with your friends is not a good idea, it usually puts a dent in your friendship..
5. [+151, -6] I can see why YG wouldn't want them to... their main income will be cut off ㅋ
