“After their single was released, I got a call. ‘Bro, it’s me.’ I said, ‘Oh, my little super star brother is calling me now?’
He said that he missed me, but couldn’t go out. So he asked if I could come to his hostel.

Happy belated birthday Choi Seung Hyun, T.O.P. You are an inspiring figure, a great entertainer, and loved all over the world.
