"Just like when winter goes, spring comes, everyone please stay healthy and don't be sad, and we'll be able to meet again very soon," G-Dragon told the concertgoers. He also said that the rest of the Big Bang group hopes that everyone will be happy, even though they will be away.

He also the promised that their break will just be quick and their love will never change. From then, the "Good Boy" hitmaker went on a break and resting.
