Having been given time off for the Christmas period, Big
Bang’s Seungri made the most of his days off – arranging a private three-day vacation with FT Island’s Choi Jong Hoon.
The friends of four years snuck away for a short trip to Bangkok, Thailand. “They wanted to get away somewhere different for the holidays,” a source tells IdolWow!.
The boys, both 22, checked in to separate rooms at the five-star Dusit Thani Hotel hotel at different times on December 24.
The insider reveals: “It was a last minute trip. They each brought friends with them. Jong Hoon met Seungri in Bangkok, having flown straight from Tokyo.”
Despite the short trip time, they made the most of their hours, meeting up with local friends including Thai rocker Kong Karoon Sosothikul, who invited them to his family home for dinner. “Crazy Christmas eve last night with my crazy Korean bro,” the Thai singer posted the morning after.
They were also introduced to friends of Sosothikul during the stay, including a group of pretty girls, who shared Instagram photos of their antics.
Today Choi tweeted a photo of the pair on their return flight from Suvarnabhumi Airport. “VI..I love you,” he wrote. Attached was a snap of the two making cute faces to the camera.
Now back in Seoul, Seungri shared a blog post about their time in Bangkok: “This Christmas I wanted to rest in a warm place, so I went to Bangkok with [Jong Hoon].”
