“I didn’t do drugs while on probation” … 2021.06.09
Han Seo Hee denies the allegation of using Methamphetamine.
On the afternoon of the 9th, the first Trial of Han Seo Hee, who was indicted for violating the Narcotics Control Act, was held at the Court Building.
Han Seo Hee (HSH) is accused of (using) administering methamphetamine in Gwangju in early June 2020.
However, Han Seo Hee said, "I deny the charges."
Han Seo Hee is accused of purchasing 9g of cannabis (Marijuana) four times from July to December 2016 and smoking cannabis in a roll or in liquid form seven times. In particular, she drew attention by smoking marijuana with (K-pop Group) Big Bang's T.O.P at T.O.P's residences. Han Seo Hee was sentenced to three years in prison, (converted to) four years of probation, a money fine of $780 USD, probation, and 120 hours of drug treatment lectures.
The defendant, who was convicted and sentenced for drug charges, is (PEE) regularly tested for drug positivity under probation at the probation office. In July 2020, a (PEE) urine test for Han Seo Hee was positive (showed illegal drugs) for anti-psychotic drugs such as methamphetamine and amphetamine. She was detained in probation (a HOLDING JAIL Cell) for 20 days (consequently).
Prosecutors had then (July 2020) requested the cancellation of the Probation for Han Seo Hee. A closed interrogation was conducted, and Han Seo Hee claimed a (PEE) urine test error. The (more accurate) Hair Test at the National Forensic Research Institute (follow up) showed a negative result (NO Illegal Drugs). And (subsequently) the Probation was maintained (Sept. 2020 , and HSH was *released* from the HOLDING JAIL). But (subsequently), the Prosecution requested a formal TRIAL on March 30 (2021), saying that some of the charges (of illegal drugs usage concerning HSH) were valid.
Han Seo Hee is the one who reported to the Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission in Year 2019, of allegations of (illegal) drug use by B.I (K-pop Idol), and (YGe Agency CEO) Yang Hyun Suk's (interference ???) refusal to investigate.
Han Seo Hee told the Police about B.I's purchase and use of drugs in the course of being investigated for smoking marijuana in 2016. And (HSH alleged) , that Yang Hyun Suk threatened and intimidated her (HSH) to change her statement (to POLICE). And that the Police Investigation was not carried out properly.
After Han Seo Hee's revelations, B.I withdrew from (K-pop Group) iKON and terminated his exclusive contract with YGe Agency. Yang Hyun Suk also stepped down as YGe Agency CEO. Both B.I and Yang Hyun Suk denied all the allegations raised by Han Seo Hee. But during the Police Investigation, B.I admitted to using marijuana. Yang Hyun Suk denied all charges of intimidating Han Seo Hee, as well as trying to get Han Seo Hee to escape overseas (locate outside of S.Korea , to avoid further Police Investigation).
However, the Police judged that there were (valid) suspicions and sent Yang Hyun Suk to the Prosecution with an opinion of indictment without detention. On May 28 (2021), the Prosecution indicted Yang Hyun Suk without detention on charges of Threatening Retaliation under the Act on Aggravated Punishment of Certain Crimes. On the same day, B.I was also indicted without detention on (illegal) drug charges.
The second hearing will be held on the (July) 23rd of next month at 2pm.
