BIGBANG has already celebrated their 10th year in the business last year. While the popular South Korean boy band are not showing any signs of slowing down, their career may come to a screeching halt when their mandatory military service will finally catch up to all them.

It's no secret that G-Dragon's (Kwon Ji-yong) passion is making music for the fans but he is also very realistic when it comes to his upcoming mandatory military enlistment. The BIGBANG singer has shared that he is open to the possibility of doing his duty very soon, but the only thing that worries him is what's going to happen when he returns to the limelight.

During his recent “Act III: Motte” concert in Seoul, G-Dragon revealed that he will be enlisting for his mandatory military service next year. Although he has been noting that he is ready to enlist himself, the BIGBANG star did share a couple of things that worry him.

“I’m enlisting in the army next year. This could really be my last time. I’ll be 32-33 years old when I get back,” G-Dragon told the audience, as reported by Koreaboo. “Will you be okay with that? I’m not okay with becoming that age. I might not be able to paint my nails anymore.”

The BIGBANG leader then shared that he opted to make his “Act III: Motte” as simple as possible. Although G-Dragon is mostly known for his eccentric style, his world tour represents his other side, which is the simple Kwon Ji-yong.

“I’m not sure which of my image you’re a fan of, but I hope you can love me whether I am the fancy G-Dragon or the shabby Kwon Ji Yong pretending to be cool,” the 28-year-old South Korean rapper, singer-songwriter, record producer, and fashion icon told the fans.
