T.O.P's Hospital Press Conference Briefing



The hospital where T.O.P is currently being treated has just announced that they will be making an official statement at 4pm KST this afternoon. A representative from the Ewha University Hospital in Mokdong has just told the media gathered at the hospital, “The doctor plans to give an official briefing on patient T.O.P’s condition at 4pm this afternoon.”

There is currently much confusion as to T.O.P’s current condition, as the Seoul Metropolitan Police, who originally found T.O.P unconscious, made a statement contradictory to T.O.P’s family and YG Entertainment.

---

At 4pm KST, Ehwa University Hospital in Mokdong hosted a press conference to brief the public on T.O.P’s current condition. A group of doctors attending to T.O.P briefed the press and then received questions on T.O.P’s condition, saying, “T.O.P arrived [at the hospital] on June 6, 2017 at 12:34pm. Three people arrived together with him, one holding his upper body, and two his lower body.” This statement confirms that contrary to the police statement earlier, T.O.P was indeed carried in, rather than walking in with support of his troop.

The doctors continued, “When we attempted to wake him up with normal stimuli, he had no reaction. It was only when we more forcefully tried to stimulate him that he reacted in a state between lethargy and stupor. His pupils did not constrict in response to light stimulation. His vital tests showed elevated blood pressure, quick pulse, and unstable breathing. He showed signs hypoxia and high levels of carbon dioxide, signs of respiratory failure. At this point he was determined to be in critical condition. We determined it to be an emergency situation.”

Kim Chungha Talks About Going Solo & Her Role Models


Kim Chungha, who debuted on June 7 with the solo album “Hands on Me,” recently sat down for an interview with MyDaily to talk about the new step in her career and her role models in the industry.

Without hesitation, she named Lee Hyori as her role model. “It might be too obvious, but I respect her so much,” she said. “I really wanted to go to her guest house and I wish I had applied. I thought only the members of the public could go but it turned out it was open to celebrities too. I feel so much regret at not even trying to apply.”

She added, “If I become successful, it would be an honor to meet her at an end-of-the-year awards ceremony or performance someday.”

YG Entertainment apologizes for how they have handled the T.O.P situation.




This is YG Entertainment.

We want to apologize to everyone who has been disappointed and hurt by the series of horrible events recently that involved T.O.P.

According to the hospital briefing, T.O.P was transferred to the emergency room at Ehwa University Mokdong Hospital on June 6 after losing consciousness at the 4th Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency.

We hope that T.O.P regains his health as soon as possible.

Us, YG, have a sense of responsibility we need to take for what happened. We fell short of everyone's expectations, we will accept the fan's reprimands with a heavy heart. We will also do our best to prevent similar problems from occuring in the future.

Once again, we would like to apologize to everyone we have worried.
