Korean Popstar G-Dragon Undergoes Police Questioning in Drug Use Investigation
On November 6, K-pop sensation G-Dragon, a member of the famous group Big Bang, was subjected to four hours of police questioning regarding suspicions of drug use. The artist voluntarily went to the Incheon Metropolitan Police Agency’s drug crime investigation office to answer queries after being previously booked by the police on allegations of drug use.
G-Dragon, whose real name is Kwon Ji-yong, addressed the media following the interrogation, adamantly denying any involvement with illegal substances. According to Korean media reports, he stated, “There are no drug-related crimes. I came here to reveal that.”
The musician arrived at the police station at around 1:23 p.m. Korea Standard Time and emerged approximately four hours later at 5:20 p.m. He disclosed that he had undergone a simple reagent test, which yielded negative results. G-Dragon also mentioned that he had willingly submitted his hair sample for further examination.
Regarding his cooperation with the investigation, the artist expressed his thoughts, stating, “I don’t think it’s unreasonable. The police probably didn’t have a personal grudge, but they did their job due to the nature of their job based on someone’s statement. Anyway, this is an investigation to prove that I have nothing to do with drug crimes, so I don’t think it’s unreasonable, but I hope they will do it in a positive way.”
G-Dragon humbly implored the investigative agency to promptly release the results of the detailed examination. He assured the public that he appreciates their support and asked them not to worry, expressing his hope that they would trust and wait for him.
It is worth mentioning that the Incheon police are currently probing drug use allegations involving G-Dragon and Lee Sun-kyun, a renowned actor famous for his role in the award-winning film “Parasite.”
