Big Bang's T.O.P. to Be Dismissed From Military After Marijuana Scandal

The 29-year-old rapper will be expelled from the police division and will have to re-enlist to the army to complete his mandatory military service.

AceShowbiz - T.O.P of Big Bang has to face a series of consequences after being charged with marijuana use last week. The "Doom Dada" rapper, who is currently serving in the military, will be expelled from the police division to go through investigation and trial.

The police revealed T.O.P's military service status on Monday, June 5. "In the 41st article of military police management laws, there is a law that states a soldier can be expelled if he is not fit to fulfill the duties," the police said. "We will soon be ordering him to leave the division."

The 29-year-old rapper will have to re-enlist to the military if his trial doesn't end in imprisonment. "You cannot be accepted back into a division you have been expelled from unless under special circumstances. His enlistment as an army policeman is now over," the police further explained.

Prior to his military dismissal, T.O.P released a handwritten apology letter on Saturday, June 3. "This is Choi Seung Hyun [T.O.P's birth name]. First of all, I would like to sincerely apologize for causing great disappointment," he wrote. "I have no excuses and feel very regretful and fearful, so I am writing down these feelings in the form of words. I am sorry for not being able to personally apologize to everyone. I am ashamed of myself. I apologize."

His bandmate G-Dragon also apologized on his behalf at Big Bang's fan meeting in Japan. "We are sorry for causing a disturbance. We will make sure something like this won't happen again in the future. Please keep supporting us," he said.

T.O.P admitted to using marijuana after it was revealed that he smoked marijuana three times in his house last year. Following the controversy, he was accused by a Japanese media outlet to be a cocaine user.
