According to Dispatch, Ilhoon was investigated more than once in July and October of last year and admitted during police investigations that he habitually smoked marijuana. His drug test results from his hairs also came back positive. 

Last year, police arrested a crew of cryptocurrency drug dealers who handed over the name of idol singer Jung Il-hoon to reduce their sentence (plea bargaining). The sale book revealed Ilhoon deposited cash to an acquaintance through a borrowed account who converted the money to virtual currency and purchased drugs. His transaction details were also revealed during account tracking process. 

Ilhoon also enlisted in the middle of a police investigation but told police, “I didn’t enlist to hide from investigations. I was just following the legal procedure given by the judicial authority.”

An aide from his side spoke to Dispatch and stated, “Ilhoon admits to the marijuana allegations and he’s reflecting on his actions. He’s sorry for the damage to the team.”

In the meantime, Jung Ilhoon is currently awaiting trial.

BTOB‘s Ihoon has been charged with routine drug use. 

On the 21st, Channel A reported that Ilhoon regularly took drugs and used virtual currency to avoid investigation. According to the report, Ilhoon used drugs several times with acquaintances from 4-5 years to last year. At the beginning of this year, police investigated him for drug abuse and a drug substance was detected in his hair. 

Police also investigated his purchase method noting that Ilhoon deposited money into a 3rd account that broker exchanged to virtual currency to purchase the drugs to maintain anonymity and avoid tracking. 

Ilhoon also enlisted in the military on May 28 despite a police investigation being underway and the investigation continued to the beginning of this year and he was forwarded to the prosecution in July.

In response to the accusations, CUBE stated “that they didn’t know Ilhoon was caught with drugs when he planned to enlist in March but ended up being delayed due to the corona.” 

In the meantime, Ilhoon has been steadily communicating with fans through selcas on Instagram so the fans are currently in shock.

10Asia reached out to Cube to confirm the facts but they were not able to reach them. 

  1. [+110, -9] He did that for 4 years??? I’m so ashamed for being his #1 fan. I don’t think I can hear him sing and rap anymore…I’ve been Melody for 5 years but it looks like he’s getting a big head.
  2. [+99, -2] 5 years…so he’s a habitual criminal. I’m sure the members all knew about it.
  3. [+39, -0] Ah~BTOB is on the way down too. Make you you investigate all his acquaintances because there’s no way he’s the only celebrity that did it on his own.
  4. [+25, -0] Celebrity drug criminals should only get one strike out. The adverse effects on our youth and society from their actions is gravely serious. 
  5. [+21, -0] Goodbye druggie~
  6. [+8, -8] Whenever a celebrity drug scandal comes out I wonder what politician scandal is getting buried in the back. Everyone knows Koreans that travel abroad abuse marijuana…he’s just unlucky to have been caught doing it in Korea ..ㅠㅠ
  7. [+5, -0] This is his first news after enlisting in the army…ah so embarrassing.

A friend of 25 years is in the ER after attempting to commit suicide. I was so surprised that I ran. She’s like this. I’m really upset and angry. I want to relieve the injustice. The suicide note mentions the name of a man Oh the most. Please stop with the malicious comments because comments are murder too. She wrote “Oh Mr. XX please save me.”

If this was really an emergency wouldn’t she be in the intensive care unitㅋㅋㅋ? You don’t get placed in a regular bed like that at the hospital if you were on your death bed from a suicide. They also wouldn’t want all those patients lying next to you either ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ.
  7. [+89, -2] So your close friend wrote a suicide note and the first thing you thought is to take a picture and upload it??? Do you realize 6 people died waiting for a bed because of the corona? Guys~please wake up to the realize of what’s going on.

Iranian woman Sahar Tabar (23) who had undergone over 50 plastic surgeries in 2017 trying to look like Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie (45) was sentenced to 10 years in prison

According to Indian Hindustan Times and Daily Mail on the 13th, Sahar was arrested in October last year for loosely wearing her hijab to reveal her surgery looks. As a result, she was charged with promoting corruption and blasphemy among young people.

In order to achieve her “Jolie look” Sahar got over 50 plastic surgeries and lost weight to 34kg. Online, she’s referred to as “Zombie Jolie.” 

Suspicions were later raised that she manipulated her Instagram photos using make-up and AI to achieve her extreme look and during a local broadcast she revealed, “It’s true that photos were a bit manipulated but I really did get plastic surgery.”

Her lawyer revealed that she had recently tested positive for coronavirus and filed for her bail. In a report by The Guardian, she had also been treated for mental illness at the hospital.

  1. [+3,953, -70] Her original face is prettier than Angelina Jolie’s??!
  2. [+2,032, -40] Shouldn’t her doctor be in jail too?
  3. [+124, -0] I googled her and it says the 50 plastic surgery thing is a lie? She’s just another attention seeker that gained fame by uploading selcas she edited using photoshop.
  4. [+74, -0] It’s like watching a “scream” movie
  5. [+69, -4] She should’ve just lived with her original face. She looked way better before surgery. 
  6. [+61, -2] I almost fainted when I saw that photo this late at scary. I thought I saw a ghost.
  7. [+57, -0] Wearing hijab loosely and showing off your plastic surgery face is blasphemy??? No matter how relative culture is, this is an intolerable amount of oppression.
  8. [+28, -0] Aigoo~she was so beautiful before the surgery…she turned into a monster for money.
  9. [+28, -0] Huh??! I’m more shocked about the laws in their country than her plastic face.

KPOP NOW – [BREAKING] BoA summoned by the prosecution for smuggling multiple drugs

ArticleThe original Hallyu star BoA summoned by prosecution for smuggling zolpidem

Source: Chosun Ilbo

On the 16th, Seoul Central District Prosecutor’s office summoned SM singer BoA (34) for secretly smuggling several psychotropic drugs including Zolpidem from abroad. BoA was caught during customs screening trying to bring in the drugs from Japan through an employee from SM’s Japanese branch. The drugs were listed under the employee’s name. 

An official from the investigation agency stated, “She was caught trying to smuggle drugs into the country after receiving the prescription in Japan. She was caught with other drugs that are frequently abused including Zolpidem.”

Regarding this, SM stated, “it happened because an employee from our Japanese branch got confirmed to purchase the drugs on behalf of BoA in a normal procedure but did not recognize that the drug would be problematic in Korea. It was a mistake due to ignorance of the Japanese branch employee who was attempting to send it in to another employee out of convenience.”

Prosecution will determine whether to prosecute BoA after in depth questioning whether she actually took the medication and intentionally smuggled it to Korea. 

  1. [+3,041, -126] SM is trying to say she wasn’t illegally trying to bring it in and that it was a mistake through ignorance but didn’t Park Bom claim the same thing too? She said she got a prescription overseas and didn’t know it was illegal in Korea. The issue even became quite big in the industry but now SM is talking the same as YG. I doubt she really didn’t know.
  2. [+2,591, -1,010] Zolpidem is a drug used for sleep… Honestly, the public can’t predict how difficult it has been for BoA, who debuted at a young age and showed only perfect appearances to the public… of course she would have trouble sleeping? Yes, she deserves the hate for smuggling drugs but I’m worried after this news has come out that she’ll have even more worries now and will need to rely on even more drugs to fall asleep. 
  3. [+1,695, -574] This is the power of the public. Jung Wook Hong’s daughter can’t even get arrested even after smuggling over millions of drugs ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ so ridiculous.
  4. [+1,024, -51] Zolpidem is a drug commonly prescribed for sleep disorders in Korea. Why do you have to bring in prescriptions from Japan? If you talk to your doctor they can get you a prescription right away?
  5. [+305, -5] From reading other articles it looks like it wasn’t just Zolpidem she smuggled other drugs too..
  6. [+247, -12] She’s a director at SM and didn’t know? Nowadays, any anon can search up the internet and why is she importing it under someone else’s name? It’s not just Zolpidem on the list of drugs she attempted to smuggle which is problematic on its own? Guys~ ignorance does not excuse you from knowing the lawㅋㅋㅋㅋ it’s not like she’s illiterate.
  7. [+172, -15] And yet she sat innocently next to Yang Hyun Suk on Kpop Star preaching to aspiring idols pretending to be some cool and righteous person that succeeded at a young age…only to be smuggling in drugs under someone else’s name. BoA-ya…wake up! In this country, there are many people who sleep worse than you, get their shops shut down and their homes foreclosed on.
  8. [+23, -1] Make sure you do a thorough investigation of the drugs all the way to the bottom…the result will be amazing to see.

Cho Doo Soon and his wife have reportedly been asked to leave the building. 

Residents of the Danwon-gu building in Ansan told media that “the landlord gave Cho Doo Soon and his wife an eviction notice” however his wife Oh refused to leave saying “they have no place to go.” 

The landlord also expressed unfairness saying “he didn’t know that Oh’s husband was Cho Doo Soon.”

A tenant living  on the third floor of Cho Doo Soon’s apartment building posted a short video on an online community and revealed, “I want to transfer my rent and move. I signed a lease and paid deposit of 5 million won for monthly rent of 250,000 won and moved a month ago. I told the landlord to take out the deposit but the owner told me to wait and I have yet to receive an answer. Please advise on how to get my deposit back. I really want to move. I’m going crazy.”

Police are also investigating 8 people including Mr. B (21) for obstruction charges for causing chaotic scene in front of Cho Doo Soon’s residence on the day of his release. 

So far over 100 police have been deployed to patrol Cho Doo Soon’s residence.

  1. [+910, -9] I can’t believe a vicious sex offender like Cho Doo-soon is receiving special benefits like limited express security car, expenses and even benefiting from real estate rental law~~
  2. [+414, -29] To protect him to this level…you’re no different from his wife.
  3. [+313, -11] ??? What are the police doing? In subzero weather they’re protecting a ba$tard like him? Where is our president right now?
  4. [+146, -5] Our country is too tolerant of juvenile crimes and drunk driving criminals. The police are working this hard to protect a felon out of prison. What about the psychological anxieties and fears about the innocent residents living in that building…what about their privacy?
