MONSTA X‘s Wonho was recently cleared of all drug charges after being wrongfully accused of illegally using marijuana back in October 2019.
In an interview that he did with Dispatch, Wonho firmly stated that he has never done marijuana.
I do acknowledge my past issues. But this time, it isn’t it. I have never done marijuana. I clearly explained this to the police.
But in order to prevent further damage to the group, he chose to step down as a member of MONSTA X.
I thought the only way for the group to continue on was for me to leave as soon as I could. I wanted to prevent as much damage as possible from reaching the group.
Now that Wonho has been completely cleared of all drug charges, Starship Entertainment released a statement about their future plans with him. The concern of Monbebes is that their statement was a bit vague as to what will specifically happen to Wonho, since they only finished with this:
During the period of investigations, we had been waiting for a long time while doing our best to minimize his exposure to avoid false accusations with the help of our lawyer. We will not hold back in supporting Wonho’s decision for his future plans.
– Starship Entertainment
And so while the fans are overjoyed…

Monbebes are reaching out to Starship Entertainment to remind them of their “promise” to support Wonho once his charges are cleared, but as of this writing, there is no official announcement yet.
“You promised to Wonho that you would support him. If he wants to rejoin the group, I request you examine it (the possibility). Also, I ask you to please give more tangible and clear protection.” #MonbebeBelieveInWonho#몬베베는_원호의_선택을_지지할거야@OfficialMonstaX https://t.co/IBOqCjQvWC

For the time being, Monbebes are savoring the happiness of knowing that Wonho is innocent.
Wonho, you are a living proof that self-atonement is real, and human being can learn from mistakes

They also applaud his bravery for admitting his past mistakes.
wonho’s heart is truly out of this world. he only loves three things: his family, his members, and his fans. while reading the interview and even before reading the interview, it’s clear that wonho is a selfless person. he would give up anything if that means it will protect-
