The police acknowledged that they initiated an investigation into the alleged drug use by singer G-Dragon and actor Lee Sun-kyun, known for his role in the movie Parasite, based solely on statements without concrete physical evidence.
During a regular press conference on the 13th, an official from the National Police Agency's National Investigation Headquarters (Noodlebon) stated, "The investigation into drug-related crimes involves determining suspicion by considering not only the findings from the National Forensic Service's evaluation but also statements and forensic data." The official added, "It is somewhat unreasonable to prematurely label the investigation as baseless simply because it has yielded negative results thus far."
Acknowledging the difficulty of conducting an investigation before securing clear evidence during the internal investigation stage, the official reassured, "We will persist with the inquiry in accordance with established procedures."
The official confirmed, "Indeed," and elaborated, "We initiated the investigation prior to the formal process to verify statements made by the investigator regarding other individuals' crimes, and we are proceeding methodically based on the information available to us."
Previously, Lee Sun-kyun received negative results in both a basic drug test and a comprehensive test, while G-Dragon also tested negative in a basic examination. G-Dragon is awaiting the results of a more thorough examination by the National Forensic Service. With consecutive negative results in the drug tests, suspicions have arisen regarding the validity of the police investigation.
Presently, a total of 10 individuals, including Lee Sun-kyun and G-Dragon, are either under investigation or undergoing internal scrutiny by the Incheon Metropolitan Police Agency for alleged drug use. Among them, five individuals, including A, the manager of an entertainment establishment accused of distributing drugs to Lee Sun-kyun and G-Dragon, have been formally charged, while the remaining five are still in the investigation stage prior to being charged.
There is currently no set schedule for additional police summons for Lee Sun-kyun and G-Dragon.
