More details of T.O.P's marijuana charge revealed + government involvement rumors

AKP STAFF
Big Bang, T.O.P
More details about Big Bang T.O.P's marijuana use charge have been revealed.


YG Entertainment has already confirmed T.O.P admitted to the charges, but reports say he initially denied the accusations. The Big Bang member and a female acquaintance in her 20s were found to have illegally smoked marijuana in his home on 3 different occasions between October 9-12 of last year. 

T.O.P first told police, "It wasn't marijuana. It was an electronic cigarette." However, his acquaintance eventually admitted to the crime. Police also stated the acquaintance had multiple drug offenses on file already.

With T.O.P's marijuana charge, netizens are revisiting the supposed government connection to YG Entertainment, which sprang up late last year. Rumors are alleging Choi Soon Shil, the aide and friend of recently impeached South Korean President Park Geun Hye, has a financial stake in YGE and YGE-affiliated buildings.

Allegedly, this connection is why YG Entertainment labelmates, including Park Bom and G-Dragon, got away with their perspective drug scandals. Furthermore, there are speculations that T.O.P was charged for his drug use because YGE no longer has the protection of Choi Soon Shil, who was officially charged for intervening in state affairs last November.
