    The musician, whose real name is Kwon Ji-young, returned to civilian life after being discharged from military service on 26 October after having enlisted on 27 February 2018.

    At least 3,000 fans gathered to greet their fave:

    ​“Thank you for waiting”, the artist reportedly told his fans. “I will return to my job and faithful to my work”.

    VIPs (official name of BigBang fandom) reacted to the star's first post on Instagram with excitement amid uncertainty about the group's future.

    ​It is unknown whether G-Dragon will continue his career as a solo artist or if there are any plans for a BigBang comeback, as no official statement has been made yet. The artist's label, YG Entertainment, is facing trouble after a series of scandals, one of which resulted in BigBang member Seungri resigning from the industry.
