The boy band member left the hospital on Friday amid officially being suspended from mandatory military service because of a marijuana scandal.


Yonhap said T.O.P. was seen sitting in a wheelchair, wearing a hospital gown before being transferred to another hospital where he will receive psychiatric treatment.

He started his military career as a conscripted policeman but was hospitalized after allegedly overdosing on benzodiazepine.

If the singer receives a jail term of 18 months or more, he will be dishonorably discharged from military service. KS
