On the day of T.O.P.'s enlistment, fans flocked to the military base in Nonsan and brought industrial sized helium balloons with them. These fans even brought banners with them and they were bashed for being shortsighted and in forgetting that they are at a military base.T.O.P.'s fans still flocked to the base where the star will receive his basic military training in Feb. 9.

These actions are contrary to T.O.P.'s wishes. People were already expecting that some fans would go out of their way to send off their K-pop idol. However, what people did was beyond expectation since they even brought balloons. In military bases, it is inappropriate to fly objects and decorate the perimeter with banners. This is exactly what those fans did.
