As a result of the recent changes on South Korea’s law on mandatory military service, it was announced by the City of Yongsan’s Administrative Office that Bigbang’s T.O.P (Real name: Choi Seung Hyun) will be officially discharged from service on July 8, 2019. The said date is 27 days earlier than his original scheduled date.
T.O.P initially enlisted in February 2017 and was originally expected to be discharged on August 2019. In January 2018, he was transferred to public service after being fined for illegal drug use in July 2017.
This marks the start of the End of Bigbang’s Military Service as members GDragon, Taeyang and Daesung are also nearing their discharge dates.
