    Big Bang member T.O.P. has drawn flak for showing up in court with full makeup on his first day of trial.

    The idol appeared on June 29 for the first time in public since his recovery from tranquilizer overdose.

    Sporting an all-black suit and sleek hairstyle, T.O.P. officially apologized through the press before proceeding to court.

    In the hearing, he admitted to all four cases involving the consumption of liquid marijuana. Han Seo Hee, the trainee whom he smoked with, was sentenced to four years of probation, 120 hours of drug rehabilitation and a fine of ₩870,000 (about $770) in mid-June.

    While some netizens paid attention to his apology, others were more critical of his appearance. Allkpop took note of some comments:

    “In midst of all this he’s wearing eyeshadow.”

    “What was he thinking wearing full makeup? He’s really out of his mind.”

    ”Look at that eyeshadow… Are you going MV filming?”

    “That makeup lol crazy”

    “He managed to get full makeup before coming.”

    “Is he really wearing makeup? Wow…. amazing…”

    T.O.P. was sentenced to two years of probation, which, when violated, would result to 10 months of jail time. His final sentence is expected on July 20.
