BIGBANG's T.O.P. finishes conscripted police examinations, gearing up for impending enlistment

Military service is something that is unavoidable for healthy males in South Korea and even high profile celebrities aren't exempted from conscripting. Just recently Choi Seung-Hyun, who most people know as BIGBANG's T.O.P., completed the conscripted police examination in preparation for his enlistment sometime next year. It would seem that the 28-year old singer-rapper is totally gearing up for his enlistment and is totally devoted to the plan unlike most celebrities who often put their conscription on hold until the age of 30.

As reported by Allkpop, it has been claimed that T.O.P. has finally finished taking the conscripted police examination on Tuesday, October 25. It has also been revealed that BIGBANG member's legal name has been listed on as one of the applicants for the conscripted police.

The result of the exams will be revealed on November 11 and whoever passes the examinations will definitely be enlisted. If T.O.P. were to pass the exams, he would be joining other known celebrities and idols that are serving as conscripted police like Super Junior's Donghae and Siwon, and TVXQ's Changmin, reports Soompi.

While T.O.P. may be ready for his enlistment, fans aren't all that welcoming of the idea that BIGBANG will temporarily be losing one of their members. What's even more sad for the fans is the fact that after T.O.P. enlists, the other members are sure to follow one by one which means it will take a long time before BIGBANG can return as a complete group.

BIGBANG has already addressed their impending military service and has revealed that T.O.P. will be the first of the five member group to enlist.

"When our country calls us to serve, we'll answer," G-Dragon said.

They promised to do their duties well. However, BIGBANG along with their fans fear the outcome of their military service as they don't know what will happen when they do return. T.O.P. is expected to enlist next year and in the meantime, the group is preparing for a November comeback and has already finished filming one of their music videos.
