I haven't been updating this thread so:

Recap on GD's military release


Although his release is bit old news already, note that he said that other BB members will be released soon and they have talked together how they miss doing music. And that he will be back soon as true "G-Dragon". So i think there will be definitely more of his solo stuff and BB stuff coming.

Taeyang's release is 10th November and Daesung's 11th.
