He spent more than two days in hospital after passing out from a drug overdose. 

But on Friday, T.O.P of the Korean boy group Big Bang was pictured in a wheelchair leaving Seoul's Ewha Womans University Medical Center, affording fans of the popular singer a huge sigh of relief. 

A report from The Korean Herald said T.O.P, whose real name is Choi Seung-hyun, was transferred to an undisclosed ward to receive psychiatric treatment. Choi was also quoted to have apologized for the incident. 

Last Tuesday, Choi was found unconscious while performing his mandatory military service as a policeman. He was suspected to have overdosed on enzodiazepine, a prescribed tranquilizer used to fight anxiety, among other conditions. 

Prior to his hospitalization, Choi was indicted for marijuana use. He initially denied smoking marijuana, which is illegal in South Korea, but later on admitted to doing so after his drug tests came back positive.
