The photo marks the band’s first teaser following their announcement in February that they would be making a comeback after a four-year hiatus, along with the news that member T.O.P’s contract with YG Entertainment agency would also end. The artist is still expected to participate in Big Bang’s activities. 

Big Bang debuted in 2006 with the album “Big Bang Vol. 1 – Since 2007” and has since been dubbed the “Kings of K-pop” following their success and impact in the music industry. Their April 2022 comeback will be the boy band’s first release since their 2018 song “Flower Road.”
