February 6, T.O.P posted a farewell message to his fellow BIGBANG members on Instagram.
He said, “Members I’ll miss. I’m going to miss you so much I’m not going to see you before I go. *sticks out tongue*”
At this, G-Dragon begged him not to just leave without seeing them. G-Dragon said, “Let’s see each other. Please at least FaceTime me. Hyung.” Taeyang also said, “Please, let’s meet. Please.”
T.O.P will be enlisting on February 9, and he will be doing so quietly with no official events.
