South Korean boy group Big Bang’s military enlistment is set to happen anytime next year! During their recent interview, the band members reveal the things that they do for their upcoming opportunity to serve their nation.

The boys shared that they have agreed to minimize the time that they spend together. Furthermore, they also talked about what they thought after renewing their contract.

"We discussed the fact that it wasn't good if the 5 of us get together for too long. It's early to say this, but we think it's best that we minimize the time the 5 of us spend together. The person holding the key to this rule is Seungri… During the time of our contract renewal, we even joked around, saying, 'If all of us don't re-sign, we should start our mandatory military service together. Let's go together when we're this cool," Big Bang said as quoted by All KPop.

In February next year, T.O.P will be the first group member to undergo the military enlistment. The other member’s compulsory national service date was not yet revealed.

Meanwhile, Big Bang has recently released their latest album titled “MADE”, which is their first full-length after 8 years. According to reports, three of its featured tracks namely "FXXK IT," "Last Dance," and "Girlfriend", has have topped 19 iTunes global charts including Finland, Hong Kong, Indonesia, the Philippines and Singapore.

According to member G-Dragon as quoted by All KPop: "We are happy that our music is loved every time, but we also worry how to make the next album. The next album is always our biggest worry. Thanks to everyone who love our music, we haven't failed yet, but we think it's love we don't deserve. But we have the desire to continue [the success]. As musicians, we also have a desire to make better albums”.

Big Bang is made up of five members namely G-Dragon, T.O.P, Taeyang, Daesung, and Seungri. The band made their debut in 2006 under the management of YG Entertainment.
