How Big Bang’s T.O.P. Spends Last Week Before Military Enlistment
How Big Bang's T.O.P. spends the last week before his military enlistment Thursday is finally revealed as fans plan to send him off on the D-day.
Big Bang's main rapper and oldest member planned to just chill and have a break while YG Entertainment dropped some details on the star's enlistment.
Soompi reported Friday that the 29-year-old YG artist will be taking some time off to rest before he enters the military.
T.O.P. will report Thursday to the Chungnam Nonsan Army Training Center where he will be spending the next four weeks for basic military training. Afterward, the rapper-actor will start serving as a member of the guard band at the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency.
YG Entertainment, however, did not disclose any concrete information on how fans can greet T.O.P. before he leaves the limelight for about two years.
"T.O.P's military enlistment is coming soon," Koreaboo quoted YG Entertainment as yaing. "It has not been decided whether he will greet the fans one last time on that day. We will need to discuss with him about that."
The Big Bang star's military enlistment has been creating such a fuzz for the longest time since he expressed his intention to finally serve his mandatory duty.
T.O.P. talked about his military conscription on variety shows and interviews as well as bid a temporary farewell to the V.I.P. fans as Big Bang launched a comeback album and a 10th-year anniversary concert tour.
YG founder Yang Hyun Suk revealed Big Bang's 2017 plans in last month's interview with Yonhap News.
"BIGBANG has grown to a scale the likes of which I never imagined," Soompi quoted him as saying. "Everyone is worried about BIGBANG going on hiatus. But the members have their own, very successful, solo careers. They'll be focusing on solo promotions this year."
YG also previously announced G-Dragon and Taeyang's individual solo comebacks this year.
