BIGBANG rapper T.O.P has been known to post some of the most eclectic things on his personal Instagram.
He even follows only one account on Instagram, and it’s an Italian alpaca farm’s account.
T.O.P posts anything from funny edits of himself, to art pieces he fancies. His most recent post however had fans talking.
Posted for all his 13.2 million followers to see, T.O.P posted a photo of the remaining four members of BIGBANG. T.O.P is alongside members G-Dragon, Daesung, and Taeyang in the post, and former member Seungri is visibly removed from the photo.
The photo was captioned with “#ilovemyband” and “#ilovemyfans”.
Former member Seungri left BIGBANG after the Burning Sun scandal in 2019, when he was accused of being involved in prostitution, embezzlement, running a secret sex chat room, and a number of other accusations that led to a three year prison sentence.
The remaining members T.O.P, G-Dragon, Daesung, and Taeyang haven’t spoken out publicly about the incident, and we haven’t seen much from BIGBANG in terms of music since then.
We’re not sure what T.O.P was trying to convey with his latest Instagram post, but V.I.Ps were quick to start talking about what he could be trying to communicate. They took to Twitter to share in their hopes that this was a sign that BIGBANG would be coming back.

Many of the humorous tweets showed V.I.Ps coming out of hibernation to see their faves become active again.

For some, T.O.P’s “#ilovemyfans” is enough.

They also noted that a lot of YG groups were also announcing comebacks at this time. Some BLINKs were even expecting BLACKPINK news soon too, as many expressed disappointment in their lack of music activities.

Super sleuth V.I.Ps also noted that the YGX Performance Director and Choreographer Lee Youngsang had updated his Instagram story on the same day as T.O.P’s Instagram post with an image of fellow BIGBANG member and leader, G-Dragon.

His caption “let’s go on a tour!!!” further excited fans and confirmed their theories that T.O.P’s Instagram post meant something.
This is all just a couple months after V.I.Ps sent a protest truck to the YG building demanding a 4 member comeback as it had been nearly 5 years since BIGBANG’s last comeback MADE.
V.I.Ps are waiting for a full 4-member group comeback. YG Entertainment promised their full support while renewing their contracts. Up until now, however, YG Entertainment has yet to do even basic work that an agency is required to do.
It’s still early on in the year, so we’ll have to just wait and see what BIGBANG’s got planned, but until then, let’s all walk the “Flower Road” together.
