The idols are all serving their mandatory military service (Picture: Facebook/Instagram) K-pop idols T.O.P and G-Dragon of BIGBANG and actor Seulong of boy band 2AM are currently serving their mandatory Korean military service. Recently, T.O.P was investigated for violating military regulations when BIGBANG’s song Flower Road was released on 13 March while he is serving as a public service worker.
He enlisted in February last year but his military service as a conscripted policeman was suspended in June when he was charged with smoking marijuana at his home. The following month, a Seoul court convicted him for marijuana use and sentenced him to 10 months in prison suspended for two years together with a fine of 12,000 won (£8). He resumed his military service last January as a public service worker and will be out by June next year. When the issue about the Flower Road song came out, YG Entertainment explained that the song ‘was recorded two years ago while working on the MADE album’.
T.O.P was accused of engaging in personal business with the release of the song. Korean media reported that the Military Manpower Administration (MMA) has cleared him of the suspicion and it ruled that he did not violate any rule.
Meanwhile, fellow BIGBANG member G-Dragon, who enlisted last February 27, has finished his five weeks of basic military training and he will serve as an active duty soldier.
It was reported that he was selected as an army instructor’s assistant following his military training but the MMA has denied it.
