T.O.P began his army duty in March 2017 under the authority of Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency. Later, he was indicted without detention for violation of Narcotics Control Act, while then serving as an active conscripted police officer.

The Ministry of National Defense concluded the decision that T.O.P is unfit to continue as a conscripted policeman.
He was sentenced to two years of probation for ten months in jail, in July of last year.

T.O.P is likely to serve at the Yongsan Craft Center in front of the Hangangjin Station. The Yongsan Craft Center is a comprehensive cultural facility where older people produce and sell artifacts, and are currently preparing for public opening in early February.

T.O.P debuted in iconic K-pop group BIGBANG before venturing to acting roles in television and film. He is set to star in action thriller Out of Control as an interpol agent. It will be released in China early this year.
