BIGBANG’s G-Dragon To Reportedly Enter Well-Known Infantry Division For His Military Enlistment

After YG Entertainment confirmed that BIGBANG’s G-Dragon will be enlisting in the military on February 27, reported details about where he will be undergoing his basic training have been revealed.

According to an industry source, G-Dragon will be entering the 3rd Infantry Division recruit training center located in Cheorwon, Gangwon Province on February 27. Enlisting as an active-duty solider, he will be undergoing five weeks of basic training before receiving his military assignment.

The 3rd Infantry Division, widely known as the “White Skull” or skeleton unit, is where actors Joo Won and Ji Chang Wook are also currently carrying out their military service. They are assigned to the 23rd infantry regiment and artillery brigade of this unit respectively.

The Ministry of National Defense has explained they will not be confirming the exact location at the request of YG Entertainment. As previously announced, the BIGBANG member will be entering quietly with no official farewell events in order to prevent any potential chaos.

Before he enlists, G-Dragon will be carrying out his last scheduled event at the opening of the Jeju Island branch of YG Republique on February 25. Soon after, fellow BIGBANG member Taeyang will also be enlisting on March 12.

Out of all the days in the year, he has to enlist on my birthday. How dare he?? #ImBeingReallySarcastic #IProbablyWouldveHadAMeltdownIfDaesungEnlistedOnMyBDayJustSaying

Yes i dont really understand lol i googled and this is what i got

noun, plural infantries. 1. soldiers or military units that fight on foot, in modern times typically with rifles, machine guns, grenades, mortars, etc., as weapons. 2. a branch of an army composed of such soldiers.

But the skeleton unit is widely known because..? 😂

Nicknamed “White Skull” (백골), the 3rd Infantry Division is one of the oldest in the military and is notorious for its intensive training.

The “White Skull” troops have as much as pride as those who serve in the Marines. It was one of the first military divisions to infiltrate the 38th parallel between North and South Korea during the Korean War. This division plays a significant role to South Korea’s national defense as its tasks include the frontline and the G.O.P (General Outpost near the border).
