Just yesterday we reported on Bigbang's T.O.P's apology to fans after getting caught for using marijuana. Today, the news has come in that the K-pop star was found unconscious from an apparent drug overdose and has been receiving treatment at an intensive care unit. Here's everything we know so far:

  • The 29-year-old actor and singer apparently overdosed on tranquilizers at 10 PM on Monday.
  • He had been prescribed the medication for medical purposes, according to the Police. 
  • When he didn't seem to wake by noon the next day, the BIGBANG member was rushed to the hospital, where upon arrival he was admitted to the intensive care unit. 
  • An official statement from Y.G Entertainment states that, “T.O.P has been taken to the Intensive Care Unit and is receiving intensive care. He normally takes tranquilizers, but according to the police he took more than usual this time. We are still checking whether or not he has regained consciousness yet. Please wait for developments.”

T.O.P.’s hospitalization comes off the heels of a marijuana scandal. He was officially charged last Wednesday for smoking the substance, which is illegal in South Korea, with a 22-year-old female singer at his home in Seoul last October. The charge puts his mandatory two-year military service in jeopardy; he temporarily left Big Bang in February to begin his service, which must be completed before the age of 35. The Korean military police issued a statement, noting, “There is a law that states a soldier can be expelled if he is not fit to fulfill his duties. We will soon be ordering him to leave the division."

As of now the actor whose official name is Choi Seyn Hyun is yet to regain consciousness. An acquaintance issued a statement, stating “The results from tests have yet to come out, but I’m suspicious that it’s due to an overdose from excessive drug use. He was having a hard time due to recent events and I think his stress reached a breaking point. It’s very unfortunate and I hope he wakes up soon.”

While the actor's mother is currently at his bedside caring for him, T.O.P fans are rallying on Twitter gunning for the actor to regain consciousness. 

We are rooting for you, oppa! Stay tuned for more updates!
