The band is known for bringing K-pop into the spotlight. The band earlier consisted of five members namely G-Dragon, T.O.P, Taeyang, Daesung, and Seungri. However, Seungri left Big Bang in 2019 after a slew of controversies followed him everywhere. The members of Big Bang are dubbed as ‘Kings of K-pop’ and they are known for their trendsetting musical experimentation, self-production, and stage presence.

Big Bang has an extensive discography but they had their own shares of ups and downs. The last album released by the South Korean group was in 2016 titled ‘Made.’ The group did perform in a few live concerts to stay in the limelight. The boy band also gifted their fans a sort of farewell song titled ‘Flower Road’ in March 2018 before they headed towards their mandatory military service.

Between 2017 and 2019, T.O.P. enlisted for his two-year service as a conscripted policeman. The remaining members continued promotions without him and went on a Japanese and Seoul dome tour called the Last Dance Tour in 2018, as posted on the official website of YG Entertainment.

In the same year, 2018, the rest of the members -- G-Dragon, Taeyang and Daesung -- began their enlistment in the mandatory military service and Seungri was initially announced to enlist in March 2019 after he had announced his retirement in the same month. In January this year, it was announced that Big Bang will perform at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, which would have marked the band’s comeback. However, due to the Covid-19 lockdown, the event got delayed with no further updates.

Now, the new poster shared by YG Entertainment has given hopes to their fans about their much-awaited return to music but there’s nothing official yet. MEA Worldwide (MEAWW) will keep you posted on the same.
