Big Bang's T.O.P. Receives Lee Byung Hun's Expensive Farewell Gift

Big Bang's T.O.P. fondly referred to top actor Lee Byun Hyun as his "best brother and friend" as he revealed the latter's expensive farewell gift for him.

The 46-year-old critically acclaimed actor continued to look after his 29-year-old friend who's now left off for military duty.

T.O.P. took to Instagram on Wednesday to share the precious gift he received from his precious friend.

"From my best brother and friend," wrote T.O.P. as a caption.

The post captured a photo of a 1987 Chateau Petrus bottle of wine with a handwritten message, "Please return in good health and I hope that the time [you spend in the army] does not feel wasted. I hope to drink this with you once you're discharged."

The said wine is known to be among the finest French wine and pegged to be around 5 million to 6 million KRW or about $4,370 to $5,240.

T.O.P. is known to be obsessed with fine wine and even purchased a large piece of an Argentine grape field in order to produce an endless supply of wine.

"The Good, The Bad, The Weird" star Lee Byung Hun formed an enduring friendship with Big Bang's main rapper after they worked together in the 2009 espionage series "Iris."

Lee Byung Hun played the lead role of South Korean Special Forces soldier Kim Hyun-jun while T.O.P. played the mysterious assassin Vick.

The senior actor talked about his friendship with T.O.P., whom he also revealed to be a drinking buddy.

"Seunghyun has an abnormal spirit world," said Lee Byung Hun in an interview with STAR, according to BIGBANGGisVIP. "Maybe because of that, I don't really feel the generation gap with Seunghyun. I think that's because we have similar interests. We both like movies, coffee, wine... Probably because we have the same hobbies." 

T.O.P. was among the many celebrities who attended Lee Byung Hun and Lee Min Jung's star-studded wedding in 2013.
