The June 9 broadcast of KBS 2TV's 'Entertainment Weekly' focused on the drug Benzodiazepine, which Big Bang member T.O.P took before his hospitalization, after the unrest caused by his marijuana scandal.


Previously on June 7, test results revealed traces of the drug in the idol's body. T.O.P had overdosed on Benzodiazepine as medical experts claimed he was experiencing respiratory problems.

Neurosurgeon Kim Kyung Soo commented on the average dosage, "If a person takes one pill a day it is 5mg and 10mg. In more severe incidents, it's about 2 pills."


Mr. Kim also mentioned, "Similar side effects like that [of T.O.P 's case] can occur if a person ingests 20 pills or more."


Meanwhile on June 9, T.O.P transferred hospitals, leaving the ICU at 2:30 PM KST. He's looking to receive psychiatric treatment at a different hospital with private facilities.

Since day one I've suspected he did it on purpose. It's too coincidental. The poor guy. Everyone (those giving him negative shit) need to just leave him alone and give him space. If he's stressed to the point of all this then something is wrong that's bigger than drugs. Who cares how he deals with the stress (unless it were to hurt someone else), what they should be doing is helping him to that he doesn't feel the need to resort to it. Idols are pushed so far and put under so much pressure by the company and fans alike to be so perfect.

WHICH BENZODIAZEPINE ?????????

Onerva Smallyellowhallo Sunday, June 11, 2017

Ikr? I wish they would specify there are several different kinds of benzos... not all are the same.

So I guess that patient confidentiality doesn't work in Korea. Okay.

_Jarhon Saturday, June 10, 2017

Taaaaaaaaaabloid bullshit. When will you fucking morons learn?!!? This idiot has no access to TOP's medical records. He has no fucking clue what has actually happened or what he took. He's giving estimates based on other shitty tabloids making wild claims. Like fucking SERIOUSLY... its 38792428749th article based on bullshit. And the reaction is always the same "*gasp* omg, really?!?!" ... NO NOT REALLY, fucking hell its tabloid bullshit

Thank you.

Kyzara Saturday, June 10, 2017

I'm not a VIP, but I would really wish that they respect medical confidentiality and they should have stopped commenting on his case as soon as he changed Hospitals, because the harm was already done at the first. Now, can they leave him what's left of his privacy?

TzuyuGirl Saturday, June 10, 2017

if someone take 20 + pills isn't that basically suicide ?

propanda TzuyuGirl Saturday, June 10, 2017

Likely. If you are supposed to take max 2 a day,. over 20 is way too many to take accidentatly.

Onerva TzuyuGirl Sunday, June 11, 2017

benzos (there are lots of different ones) are rarely lethal when overdosed on alone, it gets more dangerous when taken with alcohol or other substances. also you build a tolerance eventually. they have a really wide therapeutic effect range.

pink_oracle Saturday, June 10, 2017

Well, if it's the case that he did purely OD on the drug then 20 pills is no accident at all. Poor kid, should never have taken that first spliff.

MAN !!! ... WOMAN !!! ... *TOP* !!! ... BOTTOM !!! ... OVERDOSE !!! ...

Shimamura_Uta Saturday, June 10, 2017

It's okay fans.. he will be fine as long as he's in the hospital. They probably won't even give him an acetaminophen without splitting it in quarters. His only chance is to seduce a young nurse woman and make her his pill ****** which is really not out of the realm of reality.. her mom must continue being his personal sitter for 2 weeks longer hahaha

Whoooo Shimamura_Uta Saturday, June 10, 2017

Remind me why you're not banned yet?

Cath_Keller Whoooo Monday, June 12, 2017

She has to be reported a certain number of times before she can be banned accdg to admin. I did report all of her comments too. We need others to do the same

Shimamura_Uta Saturday, June 10, 2017

As some of you know Country musume girls are now pretty much disbanded. I feel my bad attitude and bad karma have something to do with it. Now i can't enjoy my favourite band they are disbanded as well. I'm really a cursed fan.. all my bands are disbanding or bullying. T-ara, jinwoo, country musume, crayon pop, bon jovi , tupac , they're all dead or disbanded.

Shimamura_Uta Saturday, June 10, 2017

Bon jovi is dead.. that guy's a robot out there. He's not even cool lol i'd slap him in the mouth if he tried singing in my presence.

Shimamura_Uta Saturday, June 10, 2017

T-ara got bully problems as soon as I jumped on the wagon. It's when day by day before it that I joined the wagon. Then the wagon was derailed into hell.

Shimamura_Uta Saturday, June 10, 2017

Who's next wagon i can join i'm not really BTS fan. I am big bang fan.. i was 2ne1 fan i even have yellow confetttis that fell from prudential ... remember we had to wait 50 hours for the mic check 1-2.. i have the confetis that was befallen my head.. now 2ne1 is like that confetis smh. Can i have a long lasting fandom

Shimamura_Uta Saturday, June 10, 2017

Shimamura_Uta Saturday, June 10, 2017

I'm trying to lowkey sneak into TWICE wagon but they keep pushing me off. Let me on how come JYP is on there he's 75 with young girls.

Shimamura_Uta Saturday, June 10, 2017

Hello venus (originalle)_ , i think the whole of HP will die off soon. I'm really not shocked if that happened. It's because i stepped into their store and made all their products sold out. I spread my curse all over their store and employees.. please i was the onlycustomer on there the rest were just side eyein the employees! PLEASE STOP that's really poor technique

Shimamura_Uta Saturday, June 10, 2017

Who drop over 1k on a jpop store and return with just 200 doller in the bank! That's poor management of doller.

Shimamura_Uta Saturday, June 10, 2017

F*ck you hater. If i'm cheered up, so must TOP oppa. I'm the one who is playing the foil character in this, and for many years now for these idols! Welcome TOP oppa!
