BIGBANG member Choi Seung Hyun, who is popularly known by his stage name T.O.P, was rushed to the intensive care unit in Ehwa Womans University Hospital two days ago. The singer was found unconscious and reportedly overdosed on drugs. Before he collapsed, T.O.P was undergoing investigation for recent charges on illegal use of marijuana in South Korea.
A representative for the YG Entertainment artist revealed that T.O.P has finally regained consciousness. His condition is showing progress as it has been revealed that his respiration and other vital signs were found stable.
