BIGBANG‘s T.O.P is currently serving his military enlist as a public service worker, working at the Yongsan Crafts Museum since January 2018. While he was scheduled to be discharged from the military on July 8, 2019, his discharge date has now changed.
A source from the Yongsan-gu office has stated that T.O.P’s discharge date will be moved up by 2 days, meaning he will be discharged on July 6 instead.
The Yongsan Crafts Office, where T.O.P is currently serving as a public service worker, operates as normal on Saturday. On Monday (July 8), it is a day where the museum is not open.
Therefore, once T.O.P finishes his shift on Saturday, July 6, at 6 pm, he will be discharged.

Many businesses in Korea have regularly scheduled days where they are not open. For example, stores such as Lotte Mart, E-Mart, and Costco are closed every other Sunday.
T.O.P was originally scheduled to be discharged from the military on November 8, 2018. Due to his marijuana scandal, his military enlistment was paused during the trial and investigations. Upon resuming his military service, his discharge date was meant to be in August 2019, but due to the new military law gradually reducing the service length from 21 to 18 months, changed to July 2019.
