One of the oldest groups in K-pop, BIGBANG, made a nostalgic comeback with the song “Still life”, which surprised the fandom with the special video. However, VIPs are worried about T.O.P‘s departure from the agency that saw him debut with the boy band.
The idol’s contract with YG Entertainment ended on February 7th, 2022, so it was possible that he would not participate in BIGBANG’s comeback. However, the company announced that this would happen, since T.O.P had finished recording the video.
During the night of April 5 in South Korean time, the singer of “Turn it up” published a letter through his personal Instagram account, saying goodbye to YG Entertainment for the 16 years of being with them during his career with BIG BANG.

Finally, he gives thanks to the fans who have followed him since the beginning of BIGBANG and his solo career. Even though T.O.P has officially withdrawn from YG Entertainment, the artist will continue to release music for his fans, according to an interview he conducted with Prestige.
