Fans gathered outside the military camp to say goodbye to the star.
The 29-year-old singer entered the 6th Infantry Recruit Training Center in Cheorwon, Gangwon Province on March 12 where he will undergo basic military training for his active duty appointment. The almost four-minute track finds the five-piece group singing about their special relationship with fans over a slick, mid-tempo melody. "As always, thank you and I love you", he added. The song has shot to No. 1 on Melon, Genie, Bugs, Mnet, Naver and Soribada's real-time charts.
Better still, Flower Road has been well-received internationally and has topped the iTune Top Songs Chart in 28 countries, among them New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Brazil. The song was written by G-Dragon and T.O.P, and composed and arranged by G-Dragon and The Fliptones.
Serving as a bookend to the group's career so far, "Flower Road" fittingly begins and ends off with a fading shoutout of BIGBANG's name by G-Dragon, recalling their 2008 song "Sunset Glow". Balancing out melancholy and optimism, the track is an homage to BIGBANG's relationship with the millions of fans around the world who have supported them for over a decade.
According to Soompi, Seungri wrote on his Instagram that he plans to enlist once he has completed his planned schedule for this year "to minimize Big Bang's hiatus".
