BIGBANG’s T.O.P will be returning from his mandatory military service one month early.
Since January 26, 2018, he has been serving as a public service worker. Prior to this assignment, T.O.P was a conscripted policeman when he began his service February 2017. He lost his conscripted policeman role when allegations of marijuana use and a subsequent indictment surfaced during his service. T.O.P also spent some time in the hospital following an alleged accidental overdose.
“Choi Seung Hyun’s discharge date is July 8. Due to the reduction regulation that was applied to public service agents starting from last year, his service period has been shortened by about 27 days,” a spokesperson from the Yongsan District Office said.
T.O.P’s service time has been shortened thanks to Defense Reform 2.0 that was released July 27, 2018. The reform shortens the military service time. For public service workers, the reform has been applied gradually to shorten service terms for those who started their services October 3, 2016.
T.O.P will be the first BIGBANG member to be discharged this year. G-Dragon, Taeyang, and Daesung are expected to be discharged in October and November of this year.
