T.O.P is back from his military service

BIGBANG’s T.O.P wrapped up his mandatory military service.

On July 6, T.O.P began his last day of service as a public service worker, greeted by fans as he arrived at the The Yongsan Crafts Museum in the morning. He discharged when his work ended for the day at 7 p.m. KST.

A source from his agency YG Entertainment stated, “T.O.P himself has stated that he hopes to have a quiet discharge as he does not wish to cause discomfort to the visitors of the museum.” They added that to respect his wishes, T.O.P will head home after being discharged without any separate events or greetings.

T.O.P initially enlisted as a conscripted policeman in February 2017 as the first member of BIGBANG to go to the army. He served until June of that year, when he was dismissed from duty due to marijuana use. In January 2018, he then resumed his mandatory service as a public service worker. He has also taken 3 times more sick days than normal soldiers as of March of this year. At that time, TOP said that the sick days were taken to treat his panic disorder.

He was initially scheduled to complete his service in early August, but new military laws implemented in 2018 shortened service periods for soldiers, and his new discharge date was pulled from July 8 to July 6 as his workplace does not open on Mondays.

T.O.P is the first member of BIGBANG to be discharged from the military. G-Dragon enlisted in February 2018, and Taeyang and Daesung enlisted in March 2018. All three are expected to be discharged by the end of the year.

Both TOP and his fans s*ck

2. [+332, -26]
He didn't do anything and was on his phone in an empty room. He even had staffs personally delivering his food to him. The journalists covered all of that... YG's staffs were at his place of duty while the government kept it all hush hush... tsk tsk

3. [+300, -65]
Currently, all the world is boycotting YG. Officials and broadcast stations from all over the world should join the YG boycott. Please prohibit the shows with YG artists as casts and stop consuming and streaming YG's music.

4. [+197, -11]
Even a kid like him still has fans

5. [+152, -10]
So many f*cking pigsㅎㅎ

1. [+2,837, -178]

2. [+1,026, -134]
The obvious look of someone who will do drugs to celebrate his discharge

3. [+789, -68]
I hope that criminals like him never come on TV again. The kids will watch and get influenced by him

4. [+624, -45]
You call this a discharge?ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Even saying "passed by the military" would be a jokeㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+379. -90]
F*cking trashy f*ckerㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+175, -10]
F*cking hate himㅜㅜ don't come on TV ever again

Big Bang TOP, discharged today... ignored waiting fans 'quiet return home'
1. [+928, -16] His fans are hopeless tsk

2. [+806, -14] All the dumb kids are gathered there

3. [+632, -12] Druggie b*tches waiting for another crazy druggie

4. [+31, -5] ATMs

5. [+27, -0] He still has fans? ㅋㅋㅋ Wow ㅋㅋ

6. [+27, -0] I really want to pick apart the brains of those fans ㅋㅋㅋ I wonder how they're able to function in society, they're so hopeless

7. [+26, -1] Even Park Yoochun had fans sending him armfuls of gifts for his birthday on the day of his discharge ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ such crazy b*tches ㅋㅋㅋ

8. [+16, -0] Foreign fans are hopeless, even Kangin with all his scandals gets comments like "oppa oppa", they're a mess

9. [+16, -2] The druggie and his fans, what a perfect match. And all you VIPs who are downvoting comments here, you guys are no different, tsk.

10. [+14, -0] Why would you wait outside in this heat to see a guy like that

TOP 'first facial expression since discharge'
1. [+2,914, -180] Trash

2. [+1,053, -138] He totally looks like he wants to celebrate his discharge with some drugs

3. [+815, -69] Please keep criminals like him off of TV, I don't want kids being influenced by him

4. [+650, -47] The fact that this is considered a discharge at all ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ even a dog would laugh ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+392, -91] Trash of a ba$tard ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+180, -11] I hate him so much ㅜㅜ please stay off of TV

7. [+118, -3] Imagine going home to YG and your father and dongsaeng are gone ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

8. [+117, -10] So he basically got the easiest service ever just for doing drugs??? Let's all do drugs before enlisting

9. [+109, -14] How can he call himself a man when he got caught doing drugs purchased with the money from his fan's allowances? And he still didn't serve in the army, tsk tsk. Pathetic ba$tard, you Big Bang fangirls better not leave any comments.

10. [+83, -3] He better not promise to pay back his crimes with new work and just live quietly

does anyone know what the deal was with his secret fanmeet that looked to be taking place in.. an underpass? a parking garage? how were fans selected for that? I’ve seen pictures on my explore page on IG but I didn’t have context

I’m surprised he met any fans at all honestly, given what has happened with BB.
pikapika217 7th-Jul-2019 02:45 pm (UTC)
I mean, compared to Seungri who still apparently has fans that want the group to reunite one day him still having them doesn't surprise me.

_clochette_ 7th-Jul-2019 02:49 pm (UTC)
oh I agree, I’m not surprised he still has fans, I’m just sort of surprised he chose to meet them, given he wanted to be so low-key when he enlisted and that was before everything that happened.

I also found it interesting his instagram post was in english only
evilcoc0nut 7th-Jul-2019 04:18 pm (UTC)
Considering Knetz have been reaming him and foreign fans, it doesn't surprise me that it was in English lol. :x
blck_ink 7th-Jul-2019 02:59 pm (UTC)
I read somewhere that yge contacted fans/fansites with the location and gave them numbers which got them into the venue...
jaequeeragenda 7th-Jul-2019 02:50 pm (UTC)
did he get punched in the lip or does he just have a big zit lol
neongoldtooth 7th-Jul-2019 02:57 pm (UTC)
I don’t feel one way or another about him. But damn the pr move yg is trying to play with his fanmeeting and hand written notes. And the ppl falling for it. Ugh
blck_ink 7th-Jul-2019 03:01 pm (UTC)
wheeew time flies. it's weird to think how much more has happend since he left.
vintage_boom 7th-Jul-2019 03:19 pm (UTC)
anyway...all this post is making me question is how many idols have STIs? that cold sore looks bad.
dior_chic 7th-Jul-2019 03:37 pm (UTC)
Since no one wants to wear condoms (generalizing don’t come for me people lmaoooo).....probably a lot of them.
vintage_boom 7th-Jul-2019 03:42 pm (UTC)
lol exactly

kcaomei 7th-Jul-2019 03:42 pm (UTC)
this is so out of character for him, clearly YG is still trying to desperately salvage anything to reflect good light lol
love_keiko 7th-Jul-2019 05:02 pm (UTC)
i thought so too!

and the funny thing is i've been commenting about my feelings about this which is conflicted af as a TOP stan and ppl are coming for me like BUT IT WAS JUST WEED like idk... i understand that, i didnt think it was a big deal then but...

a lot has changed in the cultural landscape since TOP's scandal. are we really gonna sit here and watch what's going on and not think twice??
sciencebottle 7th-Jul-2019 05:05 pm (UTC)
yeah exactly. with what has come to light this past year how could anyone not be critical of a celebrity's true intentions? you have every right to feel conflicted and voice that
kcaomei 7th-Jul-2019 06:15 pm (UTC)
i couldn't agree more!
vintage_boom 7th-Jul-2019 06:23 pm (UTC)
and I mean considering all the other mess that same trainee plus the seungri situation it's likely it wasn't ~just weed he was involved in. I've been conflicted about the other BB members since the Seungri scandal started, I think that should be where everyone's at with them rather than blind support.

blck_ink 7th-Jul-2019 06:33 pm (UTC)
i just saw a video of this "fanmeeting" where he is shaking his fans' hands and the while thing just felt weird?!?
aleksu7 7th-Jul-2019 07:21 pm (UTC)
Keep it
gigabytexx 7th-Jul-2019 07:49 pm (UTC)
He was the first Kpop dude I liked, I don't follow his scandals but what did he do...? Is doing drugs is a big thing? Has he abuse women?
Sorry i just wanna know why is he so hated 😅
pseudo_shigure 7th-Jul-2019 09:20 pm (UTC)
In korea even using marijuana is a big thing. So yeah.
rainstormraider 8th-Jul-2019 12:29 am (UTC)
Because he acted like he was seduced into drugs by a trainee and then it turned out that he was the one pursuing her.
kimbafierce 8th-Jul-2019 02:08 am (UTC)
Are you asking about why Koreans hate him?
He did drugs, and avoided military serves - or at least got the most comfortable serves connections can get you. So yeah..
pseudo_shigure 7th-Jul-2019 09:22 pm (UTC)
My friends are excited that he’s back. While i felt like 😐 i’ve never had bias in bb anyway and now with the current situation idk how to feel
