SEOUL, Oct. 19 (Yonhap) — K-pop band BIGBANG plans to hold a year-end concert in Seoul but without its main rapper T.O.P, who was involved in a marijuana scandal this summer, its agency said Thursday.

The group will throw a two-day show titled “BIGBANG 2017 Concert Last Dance In Seoul” at Gocheok Skydome in western Seoul on Dec. 30-31, YG Entertainment said. T.O.P will not be part of the concert, according to the company.

T.O.P, whose real name is Choi Seung-hyun, was found guilty in July of smoking marijuana multiple times and given a 10-month jail term with a two-year probation. The 29-year-old smoked the banned substance four times with a trainee singer at his home in Seoul in October of last year.

Unlike the troubled member, four other BIGBANG stars have had robust personal careers throughout the year. G-Dragon recently finished a 29-city world tour after releasing his hit solo album “Kwon Ji Yong” in June, while main singer Taeyang also dropped a new solo record titled “White Night.”

    They are very famous rappers and doing their job with the cool way. I did not find such a great singer in my whole life. The reason is that they have the courage to do something unique and this is the main reason that they are famous.
