- BIGBANG member T.O.P is set to return from his mandatory military services this July
- He will be discharged earlier than expected due to the South Korean government's decision to shorten the length of the mandatory military services of their male citizens
- This decision was created and has been implemented since 2018
BIGBANG member T.O.P will be returning from his mandatory military services this July.
According to a representative from the administrative office of the City of Yongsan. the South Korean boy group member will be discharged from the army earlier than expected due to the government's decision to shorten the length of the mandatory military services for all male citizens in the country.
In a statement, the representative said:
Choi Seung Hyun (T.O.P's real name) will be discharged from his mandatory service on July 8. Due to the government's mandatory service law which went into effect last year for public service workers as well, his mandatory service date has been shortened by approximately 27 days.
T.O.P was enlisted into the army in 2017 as a conscripted police officer. Unfortunately, he was removed from his original title when he was caught using illegal substances in July of the same year.
Because of this issue, the South Korean government plans to abolish the recruitment of celebrities as conscripted police officers.
BIGBANG is a South Korean boy group consisting of five members: Seungri, G-Dragon, T.O.P, Taeyang, and Daesung. However, Seungri left their group in 2008. They were introduced to the public back in 2006 by their agency, YG Entertainment.
