Is Taeyang Still a Member of BIGBANG?
When it was first announced that Taeyang would be leaving YG Entertainment in December there was some concern amongst fans that the singer would also be leaving boy group BIGBANG.
However, according to Soompi, YG Entertainment quickly dispelled any concerns by issuing a statement in which they said: “There is no change in the fact that Taeyang is a BIGBANG member and part of the YG Family.”
Taeyang is the second of three members of BIGBANG to leave YG Entertainment as T.O.P. announced he had not renewed his contract with the company in February, while Daesung announced he was leaving the company shortly after Taeyang’s announcement.
All three will remain members of BIGBANG despite leaving the record label, while G-Dragon has chosen to remain with YG Entertainment and in a video he announced on January 1 that he too had plans to release a solo album.
In a video message, G-Dragon said: “I plan on meeting you guys through various activities.
“I’m preparing an album too. I’ll make sure to bring some good news to you guys in the new year.”
G-Dragon has not yet revealed any specifics regarding the release date of his upcoming album, but it will be his first solo release since his 2017 self-titled EP “Kwon Ji Yong.”
