It was a sad day for VIPs as the eldest member of Big Bang, Choi Seung Hyun or more known as T.O.P., begin his mandatory military service on Wednesday, February 9, at the army training center in Nonsan. After which, an intensive training at a police school will follow to prepare him for his duties in Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency for the duration of his service.
Before his enlistment, he posted several pictures on his Instagram account as usual documenting his last moments in Seoul. His fellow members G-Dragon and Taeyang as well as his sister were not spared from the sadness as evident on their posts on Instagram.
Despite T.O.P.’s request to quietly enlist, fans still went to Nonsan to catch a glimpse of him. He is the first member of Big Bang to enlist and he will surely be missed. Big Bang will not be the same when he is not around. Take care of yourself T.O.P. We will not forget you. We will wait for your return!
