Ever since, all five members of Big Bang were prominently featured in Nongfu Spring's advertisements, however, after T.O.P and his marijuana scandal, the company decided to photoshop him out of their advertisements. Presently, only four members of the group are featured in advertisements.

I must say the photo shop work is not bad, i nearly didnt notice anything missing from the below photo without comparing it with the original one.

It's cos each member shot separately, so assuming the layers are intact it's just a matter of deleting TOP's layer

ok so.. i can understand this because they're a company trying to promote a healthy image and smoking (anything) is not very healthy.

thaad + scandal. it figures and its no biggie the companies have to look after themselves and be DIPLOMATIC. thankfully TOP is more into modeling and ART vs GD who is an endorser for  gazillion things. so in a way, its not as bad as we think and time away from the public eye with military is best for him.

This is about as petty as cropping someone out of a photo.

On other note- did you guys heard GD's new song preview lyrics? He's talking about Kiko in his new song for sure!!!

IMO, i HIGHLY doubt it and its about time ppl stop digging so deep about GDs rships with his lyrics. cmon after heartbreaker when he did "window" he wasnt with kiko back then and his lyrics were dark. he is an artist so he takes inspiration from everywhere. I dont think he gives a fuck anymore since 2015 and he has since been with other girls including nana which may be ongoing. while i like Jiko, not everything is about her. GD seems like he can carry his own . shes sleeping with that hot japanese model too and gd scores himself plenty of hot babes , so win win :)

I don't think the nana thing is true, when GD was giving the I neither confirm nor deny statement on radio star seungri jumped and said she's nothing but a cute dongsaeng I have eaten with them its really nothing like that then GD was trying to shut him, one thing is true GD is hanging with friends and donsaengs and hooking up Here and there but I doubt he's in a relationship with any he's just enjoying his life and doing his work, but what he and kiko had was real, he met her when they debuted in Japan long time ago, and ended in 2015 something like 6 years, I didn't be surprised if songs has traces of her it's normal
