On February 8, Jung Suk Won was taken in by police at the Incheon International Airport on suspicions of using the drug Philopon, a form of methamphetamine, and after two days of investigations, he's been discharged. The police stated, "It's his first offense, and we could only confirm he used the drug," explaining the reason for his release. Jung Suk Won admitted his guilt and revealed he used the drug out of curiosity.
His agency C-JeS Entertainment also stated, "Jung Suk Won has been investigated for drug use. He admitted to the crimes and cooperated with investigations, and as it's his first offense, he was released with no imprisonment. He's apologetic for disappointing so many people by making a bad mistake. He's deeply sorry for hurting his precious family. He'll be cooperating with the police for further investigations, and he's bowing his head for causing a public concern."
As previously reported, Jung Suk Won is said to have used Philopon during a recent trip to Australia. A random tipper called the police with the information, and the model and actor was arrested when he arrived in South Korea.
Stay tuned for updates on the case.
