“At 7:30 AM today he was snoring and sleeping and when we woke him up for breakfast he opened his eyes slightly and tried to go back to sleep. We thought he would be tired so we let him sleep. When he seemed unable to wake up and was sweating at approximately 12PM we moved him to the Ehwa Women’s University Mokdong Hospital emergency unit.
The doctor said that T.O.P seems to have overdosed on his prescribed medication and the details will be confirmed when the patient wakes up. He is also not in any critical condition but the medicine contains sleep-inducing substances so he is in a state of sleep. It will take 1 to 2 days for the substance to leave his body at which point he will be fit to normally carry on with his life.
