Big Bang sets comeback date as May
According to YG Entertainment, the five-member boy group’s agency, the K-pop act will return to the music scene on May 1.
It has been almost three years since Big Bang released an album because each member has been concentrating on their solo activities.
Big Bang is planning to go on a world tour after releasing the new album.
In addition, T.O.P, a member of Big Bang who is currently pursuing his acting career, will play the main character in an upcoming web drama series co-produced by CJ E&M and Amuse, a Japanese entertainment company.
Japanese actress Juri Ueno will team up with T.O.P. on the show.
The upcoming web drama series will be screened in other countries as well as Korea and Japan through websites and mobile platforms later this year.
A different YG act will release an album each month between May to September this year.
YG released a teaser image Wednesday with the message “Who’s next?” along with the dates of the first of every month.
Along with Big Bang, other musicians from YG, including iKon, are expected to release new albums this year.
