'PD Note' to dive further into Park Bom's controversial drug scandal

MBC's 'PD Note' is digging further into Park Bom's drug scandal. 


On April 23, 'PD Note' announced that the second part of the special, 'Prosecutor Reform', will be airing soon. 


According to a survey, Korean citizens named 'Prosecutor Reform' as the most urgent issue that needs to be addressed. With this in mind, the special will cover cases that led to major controversies in society due to questionable rulings. 


Among the issues is Park Bom's drug scandal. 



Back in 2010, Park Bom was caught using international mail to smuggle narcotic amphetamines. The former 2NE1 member claimed she wanted to use the drug for the treatment of her depression. Despite all the suspicion behind her drug scandal, the prosecutor decided to suspend her case, meaning they would neither investigate nor punish her for the crime. 


The ruling fired up another controversy on YG Entertainment's abuse of power and celebrity "special treatment". 


Many still question why Park Bom was not properly penalized for the use and smuggling of the illegal drug.  


'PD Note' will be diving further into the case on their April 24 episode.
