BIGBANG’s T.O.P. gets suspended sentence for marijuana use

July 20, 2017

SEOUL, July 20 (Yonhap) — Popular singer and actor T.O.P. of boy band BIGBANG was given a suspended sentence by a Seoul court on Thursday for smoking marijuana multiple times last year.

The Seoul Central District Court found Choi Seung-hyun — his real name — guilty of the use of the illicit drug and sentenced him to 10 months in jail, suspended for two years, on par with the prosecution’s demand.

Choi, 29, was indicted without detention early last month for using the banned substance four times with a 21-year-old trainee singer at his home in Seoul in October.

He had admitted to only the first two counts but later pleaded guilty to all charges, saying he “bitterly regrets” his wrongdoing.
