B.I Drug Scandal
Previously, former iKON member, B.I drug scandal had been in progress since the artist last admitted drug use in September 2019. Regarding to B.I drugs purchase charges, his new company (IOK Company) has released an official statement.
“B.I admitted to some of his (drug) charges in his investigation.”Gyeonggi Southern Provincial Police Agency, September 2019.
Although the test came out negative in February 2020, the investigation still continued based on B.I drug confirmation statement. After that, the police had filed B.I drug scandal case to the prosecution office.
To complicate things further, it was a scandal about a drug purchase a few years before that the police had wind of but which was never investigated because YG sent a witness abroad so she couldn’t be questioned and otherwise leaned on the police not to pursue the matter.— lawless (@Lawless82711890) March 27, 2021
Today, B.I drug scandal continues, and Yang Hyun Suk, YG Entertainment Founder charged for B.I drug scandal cover up. They will both be facing trials for the case.
Basically: you can be investigated with only little to no clues pointing towards you. If you are charged, it means that they have reason to believe you are guilty and are officially accusing you. However that does not determine whether or not hes actually guilty or innocent— Why your idol has messed up searches (@wtfhappenedkpop) June 8, 2021
