The South Korean Military Can't Keep Up With Big Bang Fans Sending G-Dragon Mail
The South Korean Military are facing a new dangerous threat: Fan mail.
This year, the country's military arm has seen a surge in K-pop and K-drama stars enlisting.
However, they have been forced to put out an urgent warning to all K-Pop fans, urging them to stop sending fan mail to their most prized soldier; G-Dragon of Big Bang.
The 29-year-old rapper who is a part of one of the biggest selling boy bands in the world, has been receiving an “excessive” amount of fan mail since enlisting on Feb 27, with fans going crazy over his hiatus from music.

The army have literally run out of ink and paper trying to print everything, and the influx of emails have completely crashed the online server.
YG Entertainment put out a notice on its social media account stating that, “G-Dragon is in a difficult position within his military unit as the amount of incoming mail from fans is excessive.”
bigbang will release a digital song but all I can think is military service I’m about to cry I miss em so much and I’ll have to wait at least till 2019

With another two Big Bang members; Taeyang and Daesung beginning their military service today and yesterday, it's safe to say the South Korean Military better organise a private mailroom.
Today, 4/5 of bigbang will enlist in the military. I don't even know what to do with my fangirl life for the next 2 years without them. A new song will also be released today and there's a 100% chance that VIPs will cry an ocean. Fam let's hug 😭💛☹️ #빅뱅_나온다_차트_비워라
