It’s been almost 5 years since BIGBANG has last made a comeback, with their third Korean album titled MADE being released back in December 2016. As loyal fans continue to wait for any type of comeback news from the boy group, it seems that some Korean fans have taken matters into their own hands.
It’s been reported by numerous media sites that some Korean BIGBANG fans have begun to protest the lack of promotions made by the boy group—by sending a protest truck in front of YG Entertainment demanding for a 4 member comeback.
VIPs (BIGBANG’s fanclub) are waiting for a full 4-member group comeback. YG Entertainment promised their full support while renewing their contracts. Up until now, however, YG Entertainment has yet to do even basic work that an agency is required to do.

It was also further reported that the fans requested for YG Entertainment to take legal acton against all of the ongoing malicious rumors and comments made about BIGBANG. In their demands, they also asked for agency confirmation regarding Seungri‘s departure from the boy group, while specifically asking for a 4-member comeback.
Longtime K-Pop fans know that BIGBANG’s 5-year hiatus began due to a variety of different reasons. The members all began their mandatory military enlistments from 2017-2019, creating an overlapping time period of missing members. In addition to that, a couple of the members found themselves in different controversies—T.O.P‘s drug controversy and former member Seungri’s Burning Sun Scandal.
While the group was confirmed to make a 4-member appearance at the 2020 Coachella festival, the event was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic that occurred. Since then, BIGBANG fans have not yet heard about any comeback news.
