Holding back his tears, the Big Bang leader says that his mind ‘is just blank right now. I’m not sure what to say exactly.’
Big Bang held their last concert before their military enlistment on December 30 at the Gocheok SkyDome in Seoul. Footage of their concert was shown in the January 12 episode of “Livin’ the Double Life”. Many people could be seen shedding tears during the concert, including G-Dragon.
Towards the end of the concert, each member took some time to say their goodbyes to all their fans. Seungri was the first one to bid his farewell. “This tour, which seemed like it will never end, has come to a close today. I can’t believe that we have to say goodbye after several more songs,” he said.
Daesung then said that he was not sad just because the concert “has become our last performance before military enlistment.” He continued, “I just want to tell you guys thank you for gifting us all the great times and memories.”
After that, G-Dragon stepped up to the stage. Holding back his tears, the Big Bang leader said, “Honestly, my mind is just blank right now. I’m not sure what to say exactly.. I don’t have anything special to say.. I’m happy. It was happiness and all I can say is that I’m grateful.” Following his remarks, teardrops could be seen running down his cheek.
Taeyang was the last to bid his farewell. “As you know, after this performance, we will not be able to meet you guys for a short or a long time depending on how you perceive it,” he said, before reassuring his fans they would meet again later with “improved, new sides.” He added, “The times we spent together will always be a big encouragement to us during our military duty. Thank you so much and I love you.”
Following their emotional goodbyes, Big Bang closed out their last concert with a rendition of “Last Dance”. Sandara Park, who attended the concert that day, was also crying. “I was watching from the audience and I cried, since I’ve been going to Big Bang’s concerts for ten years now,” she shared on “Livin’ the Double Life”.
