T.O.P confirmed that he left BIGBANG. He also said he is preparing to come back as a solo artist.
The Pann article regarding this became a hot topic with over 133,000 views as of the morning of June 1st. Below are some comments from Korean netizens.
- But what’s the concept of posting and crossing off the name of the group that you belonged to for over 15 years?
- Other members are just starting their solo activities again to regain their stained glory. GD and Taeyang are still full of affection for fans. Did you think everyone will welcome you after you said you’d leave the group and release a solo album?
- Wow, isn’t there something going on with the name Seunghyun? How can you two with the same name make a fuss then leave like this? (Seungri: Lee Seunghyun, T.O.P: Choi Seunghyun)
- Didn’t T.O.P already withdraw from BIGBANG? I thought he left after the drug scandal.
- I guess he doesn’t have any lingering feelings about BIGBANG. Isn’t that too rude to the members and fans?
