T.O.P of South Korean idol group Big Bang will complete his mandatory military service in July.
He was the first member of Big Bang to begin the duty. On February 2017, his mandatory service as a conscripted police officer but only after 117 days since he has begun the service, he was confirmed to use illegal marijuana at home and was charged and fined for illegal drug usage in July of 2017.
In January of 2018, T.O.P lost his position as a conscripted officer and began work as a public service worker for the city of Yongsan.
Big Bang member T.O.P will also be discharged from his mandatory service earlier, as a result of the government's decision in 2018 to shorten the length of mandatory service for all males serving in the military or in public service. Thus, he will be discharged 27 days earlier which is July 8.
