On April 24, JYJ's label C-Jes Entertainment released an official statement to announce Yoochun's departure from the industry.
The label's statement reads as follows:
"Hello, this is C-Jes Entertainment.
We have been following the investigation with trust in Park Yoochun's claims that he was innocent, but yesterday, we learned through news reports that the National Forensic Service results showed positivity.
Despite waiting for good results in the investigation with trust in our artist, we were faced with such news reports, and feel miserable. After concluding that we cannot reestablish a trustful relationship with Park Yoochun, we have decided to cancel our exclusive contract with the artist.
As previously stated, Yoochun will retire from the entertainment industry, cancelling all future schedules from today forward in order to submit to the court's official decision.
We are aware of the severity of this situation and feel great responsibility; we will make sure that such disconcerting events do not happen again through strict regulations and changes in policy.
Once again, we bow our heads in apology for causing concerns."
Back on April 23, police confirmed that the hair follicles collected from Yoochun's legs tested positive for the illegal drug methamphetamine.
