Daesung, Taeyang (Naver V Live)

Big Bang members Taeyang and Daesung completed their mandatory military service Sunday. Many local media outlets reported from the scene, where both band members were discharged from the service after 20 months.

“Thank you to so many people who came today,” said Taeyang, who seemed excited and nervous. “It’s hard to believe that I am being discharged. Depending on how you look at it, the time (in the military) seemed both short and long. But it was a very meaningful period. I would like to thank my fellow comrades and superiors who led me for the past 20 months despite my shortcomings.”

“I’ve learned and felt so much during (my time in) the military,” said Daesung. “I have felt emotions that I haven’t experienced before, and I learned to understand other people more. To all the soldiers and my supervisors that are working hard even at this time to protect the country, I would like to say thank you and I love you.”

On their future plans, Taeyang said the two musicians need lots of wisdom. “We will put in a lot of thoughts and discussion amongst ourselves and would like to repay (you) with good things. We will work hard to show you many sides that we were unable to show you during the military period.”

With Big Bang members T.O.P and G-Dragon having been discharged in July and October, respectively, all four members have now completed their service.

Momo said she enjoyed cooking and would love to cook for her fans and eat together someday.
