After completing his month-long training at the military boot camp, fans are now worried about BIG BANG's T.O.P. after he failed to attend his training completion ceremony because of health issues. This came as a shock for fans who were very happy to see T.O.P.'s earlier photos in training looking happy and well.

It can be recalled that since reporting for basic army training for his mandatory military enlistment, photos surfaced of T.O.P. with his batchmates, looking like he is acclimating well to his new environment. There were even photos of him and co-trainees sporting wacky hand gestures with T.O.P. breaking out his signature finger pointing move, Drama Fever reported.

After completing his month-long training however, the BIG BANG member was conspicuously missing from his completion ceremony, making fans wonder what happened to T.O.P. Army officials addressed the concern by assuring that T.O.P, whose real name is Choi Seung Heun, was unable to attend the graduation because of health issues.

According to them, T.O.P. was receiving treatment at the army base's infirmary rendering him unable to attend the rites. It was not made public if he was receiving treatment for an injury or an illness. They did assure however, that T.O.P. completed his training requirements and will proceed for the next phase of his service with no problems.

T.O.P will be transferred to the riot police training base in Gyeonggi province for two additional weeks of police training. Afterwards, he will be deployed at the Gangnam Police Station where he will render his official police duty, reported Big Bang Updates.

T.O.P was not the only K-pop idol to complete the first phase of their military service as JYJ's Kim Jinsu will also be leaving the Nonsan Army Training Center on March 9. Kim Jinsu will be transferred to a separate training center in Gyeonggi province to attend task group police training and will be deployed at the South Gyeonggi Police Agency.
