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.
