    A law will never change without some people breaking it before
    But well this is not the role of idols, as they have already said when they are getting they just say sorry lmao

    I applaud guys like Bill, who talk about this
    http://netizenbuzz.blogspot.com/2020/11/rapper-bill-stax-advocates-for.html

    I don't think Ilhoon is a bad person, it's not like im a clean person either... But he was caught, and everyone needs to accept that.
    If you want some changes, demand the change. Don't just keep saying "sorry for my mistakes."


    Also i can't with people who think this is something against the idols. This guys spent more than $90k
    He is not the main target, there is a dealer behind everything. He is just the dumb guy who used bitcoins

    I get too many replies, busy much, blinks consume most of my energy, gosh those kids are something:sweatr:

    Ikr? I'd probably get supported which would feel weird tbh. Things will only turn around if BTS member does it. Half of people here will change their opinion :D

    TBH, I can "understand" the frustration of fans of BTOB (or any groups who deal with their idol members leaving their groups because of weeds) and it's kind true it's not as bad that killing or rape someone. BUT, we need to understand that it's illegal in Asia. Then, when an idol decide to take or buy it despite knowing it, he/she should know that consequences could come to him/her anytime.

    Yes, it's true that being an idol isn't easy and can be really stressful so some of them could use weeds to try relaxing or anything. (Not sure effect of this since I never touched drugs my whole life despite being legal in my country but my sister said it was help to relax so). But, it's also true that it exists many other ways to relax or help yourself to cope stress as go see a professional (or drinking/smoke as a mad as all their korean peers XD).

    Sadly, it's also true that Asia isn't really open about mental health and how it's a taboo (so people don't dare consult). For sure it improved since I saw more and more people opening about taking medecine or see psy in South Korea last years but it's still far to be the best.
    So, I feel like it's important for Asia to start to be more open about mental issues so people can be more open to seak help and find other ways to cope their stress/depression or anything. Like this, it would decrease case like this one when idols decide to go with the worst solution possible wasting them and their groups.

    Sorry if it's long, just wanted share my pov.

    Listen,

    I'm pro weed but it's against the law. Therefore he got what he deserved. Idols need to stop thinking they are above the law.

    If it was any normal person, they would of been jailed. As much as I think weed should be legalised, it's not. Therefore, you should be held accountable.

    Sex, drugs and alcohol. We can live without all but we still chose do 'm all

    Maybe using weed was a way for him to cope with stress or mental problems. Some of y'all are acting like he did hard drugs (heroine, cocaine, meth etc.). I would probably smoke $90.000 dollar worth of weed too because as far as I know the mental healthcare over there is shit. I dare to say 30-40% of our oppa's probably smoke weed lmao

    I understand the law and if you get caught you pay for it and he did welp

    I mean
    They know they go down once caught
    They keep doing it
    How is it someone else's fault?

    It would have been worse if it was a normal citizen too
    As some other people have said, they are not above the law

    Also, to compare the legalization of homosexuality with such a mundane issue...is quite vile ngl

    i actually love BTOB's i'll be your man one of my favorite songs
    sad that he just gets kicked out instead of reprimanded or something or temporarily suspended
    buttt Cube doesn't play that game.

    Unfortunately many swear by Weed and how it helps and are for it and it's being legalized in places, however, it's still illegal in Korea. So if he did something illegal and got caught he has to face the consequences, its sad that Cube just threw him out like that instead of giving him time to reflect and go on a hiatus for a bit but

    Cube is like that...Sure hui can tell you...it's quite sad but whether some people agree with weed or don't, we can't change the laws. Some will say it's better than alcohol however, here in Las Vegas you can't be operating a vehicle while high you cant smoke it while driving. There's still those risks.

    It sucks but he did what he did knowingly and he has to unfortunately deal with the consequences. Smoking anything can't possibly be good no matter how much stress an artist is under...Smoking can really damage their lungs and vocal chords and I don't know why they do it at all, drinking too much can cause liver damage or other problems. I wish they found a healthier way to de-stress instead of turning to things like this.

    Exactly. At some point, people need to stop babying idols and realise that they are breaking the law in their country. It doesn't matter that it's "not that bad" in the eyes of America because they aren't living in America. These idols are smoking weed in Korea so they are obviously going to face charges for it.

    As it's illegal don't do weed or at least be discrete. Simple. It's their own fault for getting caught

    In my perspective, smoke weed isn't that bad and I really don't care.
    But who are we to judge, it's illegal in S.Korea so.
    Btw I agree that the concequence of it is exagerated and their career shouldn't be ruined by this.
