"We're truly happy to announce Taeyang's new start," YG said. "There is no change in his status as YG family and a member of BIGBANG. Since we know many people are waiting for the group's activities, we'll make efforts for this together."

The group debuted as a five-member group in 2006 and has since released a number of hit songs, such as "Lies," "Last Farewell," "Fantastic Baby" and "Bang Bang Bang," standing at the forefront of an Asia-wide boom of Korean pop music.

After the departure of member Seungri, the group returned as a quartet with a new single, "Still Life," in April after four years of hiatus mainly caused by members' military enlistments.
