Fans were seen gathered outside the place, saying their goodbyes to their favorite South Korean singer.

Outside of his success of over a decade with Big Bang, Daesung has carved out a formidable solo career in Japan by releasing two solo albums, "D'scover" and "D-Day", since 2013.

With four out of the five BIGBANG members now in the military, the group will go on a temporary hiatus while youngest member Seungri works on his solo activities. "This is not the end of us/ I hope we'll meet again when the flowers are blooming", G-Dragon raps. "If you want to leave, I understand", Daesung and Taeyang sing during the refrain. Additionally, it receives positive responses internationally as it tops iTunes Top Songs chart in 28 countries including New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan and Brazil.

The song, with lyrics written by G-Dragon and T.O.P, features the voices of all 5 members, including Taeyang, Daesung, and Seungri.
