Members of the biggest Korean hip hop boy band Big Bang proved that life goes on even while one of them remains in training in the military. Hot balladeer Taeyang wrote he misses the oldest member and main rapper T.O.P, who's in training with his troops in the military. Leader G-Dragon grows off a beard, Daesung snaps a photo with actor Kim Soo Roo while youngest member Seungri hints at a collaboration with WINNER's Song Min Ho for his upcoming solo album.

The 28-year-old singer of "Eyes, Nose, Lips" reportedly sent a virtual letter for rapper-actor T.O.P. with the title "Hyung, I miss you." According to Big Bang Updates, the public can browse the titles of the virtual messages yet only recipients can open and read the content. More importantly, not everyone can send virtual letters. The 29-year-old enlisted in the military February 9 together with JYJ's Junsu as conscripted policemen. Taeyang also wrote him a handwritten letter before and even made the oldest Big Bang member cry with the words "I love you" because the "Turn It Up" rapper thought "it's a phrase that is very hard for men to say to each other."

The 28-year-old fashion icon G-Dragon, meanwhile, reveals Tuesday he's been busy growing a beard. He posted a black and white selfie that captured his facial hair under a smirk and a dark-rimmed glasses. Fellow member Daesung, who'll reportedly drop his first Japanese solo album "D-Day" in April, appeared together with actor Kim Soo Roo in a photo shared on the actor's social media account. Seungri also plans to release a solo album and even hinted at working together with WINNER's Song Min Ho.

The V.I.P.s caused an uproar recently as they accused BTS of copying Big Bang again. This time BTS allegedly copied T.O.P.'s stage concept No Signal during their performance at the 6th Gaon Chart Music Awards. Gaon apologized for the controversy Thursday. "After checking with the outsourced production company that was responsible for the ceremony, we found that there was insufficient monitoring of the footage used for the performances, which resulted in the incident," said Gaon on their official homepage, according to Soompi. "Furthermore, the company did not have a chance to thoroughly run the footage by BTS before the ceremony either. We are deeply sorry for any inconvenience we have caused."
