CEO Yang Hyun Suk of YGE even stated to OSEN, "Throughout these past 10 year with Big Bang, we have never discussed any plans to enlist during the same time period." He added,We are planning to take legal actions against the rumors."
A representative of the label also stated, "Big Bang's oldest member T.O.P. will enlist first, and then other members will follow one by one. In fact, G-Dragon and Taeyang are preparing solo albums for next year." As allkpop quoted.
