K-pop band Bigbang's singer readies for military dutyWorld | 8 Mar 2019 3:08 pm
Seungri of South Korean boy band Bigbang will join the army late this month for mandatory military service, his agency said today.
"Seungri will enlist in the army on March 25," YG Entertainment said.
The 29-year-old singer is facing a police inquiry into allegations including drug use and the provision of sex services to foreign investors, which he has strongly denied in earlier investigations, Yonhap reports.
The singer canceled his solo concerts originally set for March 9-10 in Osaka and March 17 in Jakarta due to the scandal.
All other members of the popular boy group are now serving their military duty.
