***** UPDATE *****

It's official, G-Dragon is coming back on June 8 with his newest solo album, titled "Kwon Ji Yong" and taken after his real name.

Not long to wait until the BIGBANG leader is back!


For a number of months now, there have been whispers that G-Dragon and Taeyang have been hard at work on new albums for their solo comebacks. Thanks to a new photo from none other than YG CEO Yang Hyun Suk himself, we have the surest sign of a comeback confirmation for both BIGBANG members!

The YG CEO shared a new photo on his Instagram, which shows Taeyang and G-Dragon in the recording studio. But the most interesting part of the photo are the accompanying hashtags (translated below) confirming that recording for both artists' albums is complete, and that G-Dragon's comeback will happen in "early June" followed by Taeyang's.

#MYFAMILY #MYBROTHER #MYFRIEND #DuringOurLastRecording #TodayMarksTheProjectComplete #DefinitelyEarlyJune #TogetherFor17Years #LookingForwardTo17YearsMore #HwaitingGD #NextIsTaeyang #YG

While no exact date has been revealed, the "early June" window means that fans won't be waiting too long for the long-awaited solo returns of G-Dragon and Taeyang!
