SEOUL, June 30 (Yonhap) -- G-Dragon, the leader of K-pop boy band BIGBANG who is currently serving his mandatory military duty, has returned to his military base after receiving treatment for his ankle, his agency said Saturday.

YG Entertainment said G-Dragon returned to his base in Cheorwon, 90 kilometers northeast of Seoul, on Friday after receiving treatment at the Armed Forces Hospital in Yangju, Gyeonggi Province.

G-Dragon, whose real name is Kwon Ji-yong, came under fire following an allegation that he received special treatment from the military by being admitted into an exclusive room of the hospital instead of one of the shared rooms used by normal soldiers.

The agency earlier denied the allegation, claiming the rumor was "groundless and malicious."
