The Big Bang boys are splitting up. Yes, it's true, but as you all may know by now it is merely temporary. G-Dragon, TOP, Taeyang, Daesung and Seungri will be splitting up to do their own things in the first half of 2009. G-Dragon is getting ready for solo activities, Taeyang is preparing for a second mini-album, TOP is starting to film for the drama "Iris." Overall, I think that one of the strengths of Big Bang is that they are capable of standing well on their own, though some are better flying solo than others.
