BIGBANGs T.O.P To Complete Mandatory Service As Public Service Worker

After being deemed unfit to return to service as a conscripted policeman on July 31, BIGBANG’s T.O.P has officially been assigned reservist status by the Ministry of National Defense and is being transferred from the police department today, August 28, to finish the remainder of his mandatory service as a public service worker (generally those assigned reservist status complete mandatory service as a public service worker).

According to police, T.O.P will be serving under the supervision of the Military Manpower Administration in the jurisdiction of his residence. The time that T.O.P had been dismissed from duty — for the duration of his prosecution — will not count toward his total service.

BIGBANG’s T.O.P, who recently admitted to allegations of marijuana use, has returned to his station and will for the time being be carrying out his usual duties, according to Ha Man Jin, the bandmaster of the Seoul Metropolitan Police. Ha Man Jin came out to brief reporters when they missed T.O.P, who returned to base much earlier than his scheduled time.

Ha Man Jin said, “‘Currently, T.O.P has returned to his station [after being off-base], and is on standby. The deadline to return was originally 6 p.m., so he doesn’t currently have any assignments. Whether or not T.O.P will be transferred to another department has yet to be decided.”
