According to the legal community on the 27th, the Drug Crime Investigation Unit of the Incheon Metropolitan Police Agency decided not to extend the travel ban on Mr. Kwon, which expired around the 25th.
It is known that the police recently requested the Ministry of Justice to extend the travel ban on actor Lee Sun-kyun (48), who is also under investigation for suspicion of marijuana and psychotropic substances under the Narcotics Control Law.
There are speculations within police circles that the direction of the future investigation will differ for Mr. Kwon and Mr. Lee, given the differing measures regarding the extension of the travel ban.
Both individuals received a 'negative' judgment in the precise assessment by the National Forensic Service.
However, in the case of Mr. Lee, circumstantial evidence such as text messages exchanged with a club manager Ms. A (29, female) suggests that the police will continue the investigation.
However, the possibility that the case involving Mr. Kwon will conclude with a 'non-indictment' without further summoning and not being passed to the prosecution has increased. This is because there is no particular circumstantial evidence, and the precise assessment by the National Forensic Service related to the drug administration allegations has been completed.
