Cube Entertainment confirms BTOB's Ilhoon is being investigated for marijuana use; apologizes on idol's behalf

AKP STAFF

Cube Entertainment has released an official statement regarding BTOB member Ilhoon's marijuana investigation.

In the statement, which was released on the evening of December 21 KST, the agency said the following:


"Hello, this is Cube Entertainment.


After checking with Jung Ilhoon in regard to the news released earlier today, it has been confirmed that he has been summoned by the police investigation agency for questioning on charges of smoking marijuana, as previously reported.

He feels a heavy responsibility for causing concern to many people, and he will do his best to faithfully carry out future investigations.

Once again, we are sorry for causing concern."


The statement follows a previous shorter one where the agency had denied knowing anything regarding a drug investigation. According to a Channel A news broadcast, the police were able to find circumstantial evidence pointing to his marijuana usage, including virtual currency transaction and test results from a hair drug test.

i dunno why do idols still do it.. smoke weed, when they KNOW its illegal and it will cost them their career.

Often the generic defense is they say they take it because they are stress and suffer from depression or whatever. but i think there are celebrities who suffer from depression and stress or anxiety issues. but they approach a proper doctor and use medi that is ALLOWED in Korea.

Frankly if you REALLY need weed to cure your illness (which i dun think so), he should probably take a long rest, FLY to a country where it is LEGAL, do it there, and come back when he is okay.

but seriously saying you need it for whatever reasons is just an excuse.


There has been so many incidents of celebs getting caught.

report says he started 4 years ago until last year.. which means he is a regular user already. this is not something he tried out of curiousity.
