Eun Cheon is furious; Pil Joo is ousted

Daesung, member of iconic K-pop group, “Big Bang,” will be enlisting in the mandatory military service in Korea. Military service of two years is mandatory for South Korean males.

T.O.P. started his military service last February and G Dragon enlisted earlier this year. Taeyang, who married in February, will be enlisting around the same time as Daesung.

The only member who has not enlisted is Seungri, who plans on doing so later this year after promoting his Chinese debut film “Love Only.” Daesung and other Big Bang members love Hawaii and have had concerts, family vacations and photoshoots here. Daesung also had a DNA show the first week of January at the Hawaii Theatre for his fans.
