Actor Yang arrested for alleged drug use + Yang Dong Geun, Yang Se Jong, and more deny they're actor named


Actor Yang has reportedly been arrested for drug use. 

According to reports, police received calls about the actor running around nearby a hotel in the Nonhyeon neighborhood of Seoul around 3AM KST. It's reported Yang was acting strangely and speaking nonsense at the police station, and after drug testing, he was found positive for Philopon. Police are currently in the process of starting an investigation into Yang and his acquaintances. Yang is said to have starred in hit movies and hit dramas on SBSMBC, and KBS

With the news, multiple stars with the last name Yang are being speculated, and they've denied they're the actor named in headlines. Yang Se Jong's label stated, "He's currently filming a drama. He has nothing to do with actor Yang who is suspected of using Philopon." Yang Dong Geun's agency also stated, "He's currently on set for a drama." Yang Ik Joon's label stated, "He's currently at Marronnier Park." Yang Hyun Min's agency stated, "Nothing like that is going on." Yang Joo Ho's agency also stated, "Yang Joo Ho is not the actor suspected of drug use. He's currently filming with no problems. It's a surprise these speculative rumors have suddenly started."

Stay tuned for updates.

i'm going to be honest, kmedia using surnames for suspects or perpetrators is pissing me off. approximately half of the korean population has 1 of 3 popular surnames (kim, lee, park) so saying "actor Kim did xyz illegal act" for example will lead to A LOT of actors being suspected. say their whole name - if they're proven to be guilty - or just stick to "an actor" or "actor A", etc.

He already found to be guilty why they didn't announce his name and avoid suspicious for other actors
