BTOB‘s Ilhoon has just been accused of habitual drug usage according to the police and is currently under investigation.
According to an exclusive report from Channel A via Sports Donga, Ilhoon was brought in on drug charges for suspicions of habitual drug usage. His case was sent to prosecution in July.
Police have confirmed through testimonies and account tracking that Ilhoon smoked marijuana several times with his acquaintances, starting from 4-5 years ago and as recent as last year.
Traces of drugs were also detected in hair samples during a drug test.
We have secured evidence that Jung Ilhoon purchased the marijuana not with cash, but with cryptocurrency in an attempt to avoid any investigation.
There is more controversy surrounding this since he joined the military during his investigation.
