While shooting for his upcoming movie, The Alumni, T.O.P received injury to his right hand. The injury occurred during the filming of a fight scene involving glass. A piece of shattered glass cut the back of his hand, causing the need for immediate surgery. T.O.P is currently in the hospital.
YG Entertainment representative has stated,
“It wasn′t a minor injury, and so he had to go through surgery, pitching his agency and the film′s production company into a state of emergency. They got together in an emergency meeting to talk over changes in schedule and postponements to help T.O.P recover quickly. T.O.P is currently more worried over the changes in the film and Big Bang′s schedules rather than his own injury and is determined to get through all schedules as planned.”
T.O.P currently has no trouble moving his body and plans to attend both the movie fan meet and upcoming 2012 Big Bang Alive Galaxy Tour. Although he will be able to attend these events, the injury is expected to hinder the movie shoot due to his hand being bandaged for two to three weeks.
An official from YG stated,
“Because shooting for the film had stopped when the director was replaced and had barely started up again, T.O.P is more pressured at the thought that the filming schedule will be pushed back again because of him. We will talk the schedule over with his doctor so that they can progress without putting too much strain on T.O.P.”
