T.O.P’s (real name Choi Seung Hyun) enlistment is less than 2 days away and truth be told, we still don’t know how to handle this heartbreaking news 🙁
It seems like the rapper himself has difficulty bidding farewell as well, as he has refused to meet his fellow BIGBANG rappers and VIPs (as fans of BIGBANG are lovingly known).
He posted a photo of BIGBANG on his Instagram, along with the caption, “Members I’ll miss. I’m going to miss you so much I’m not going to see you before I go. *sticks out tongue*”
However, the members left comments on his post, begging him not to leave without seeing them first. Leader G-Dragon commented, “Let’s see each other. Please at least FaceTime me. Hyung,” while Taeyang said, “Please, let’s meet. Please.”
We don’t know if the members’ pleas were read by T.O.P., but the artiste has also decided to not meet fans for one last time before he conscripts. He plans to enlists quietly, with no official events or farewell.
Despite this, fans and reporters are expected to flood the Nonsan army training center on 9th February (Thursday), as the rapper and JYJ’s Kim Junsu will be enlisting on the same day at the same place.
They will begin their his training for 4 weeks at the army training centre in Nonsan with other new recruits, before receiving further training at the police school. The rapper will then be continuing his service at the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency as part of the guard band.
He is expected to be released from the military sometime in 2019.
