Previously, his management agency YG Entertainment announced that he would enlist without any official farewell event with fans to avoid an excessive number of fans cluttering.
However, many fans still came to the military base to share the moment.
They all held up banners that were written with messages such as, "We will be waiting for you, TAEYANG.", "See you next winter!" and so on.
At the site, TAEYANG said his final goodbye to his fans.
TAEYANG continually waved at them, and some lucky fans even got to shake hands with him.Right before entering the military training base, TAEYANG raised his hand in salute, and bowed to his fans by completely kneeling down on the ground to show a deep respect.It had been recently reported that TAEYANG's wife Min Hyorin was going to accompany him to the military base, but there were no signs of her at the site.
At the training base, he will be getting five weeks of intense training before being stationed to a particular military base.
TAEYANG is expected to be discharged from the military in December 2019.
