The paths of G-Dragon and Lee Sun-kyun, who were both under investigation for drug-related charges, took contrasting turns
According to legal circles on Dec 21st, the Incheon Metropolitan Police Agency’s Drug Crime Investigation Unit plans to summon Lee Sun-kyun, who is facing charges under the Narcotics Control Act for marijuana and psychotropic drugs, for the third time on Dec 23rd.
Lee Sun-kyun is accused of smoking marijuana at the Seoul residence of A (29), the manager of an entertainment venue in Gangnam, this year. After the allegations surfaced, he filed complaints against 2 people, including A, claiming that he was extorted out of 350 million won due to the incident.
On this day, Lee Sun-kyun is scheduled to be initially questioned as a victim of serious coercion involving a large sum of money before undergoing additional questioning as a suspect in the drug case.
Earlier, Lee Sun-kyun received negative results in both preliminary urine tests and precise drug assessments. However, he has not yet been cleared of the charges. His wife, Jeon Hye-jin, is also facing a difficult situation ahead of the release of the film “Mission: Cross” scheduled for Lunar New Year.
On the other hand, G-Dragon, who was also summoned for investigation on drug charges during a similar period, was cleared of all charges. G-Dragon, who became a subject of investigation based solely on A’s statements, voluntarily attended the police investigation, underwent preliminary urine tests and precise drug assessments, all of which returned negative results.
Following A’s contradictory statements, proving G-Dragon’s involvement became even more challenging. On Dec 18th, G-Dragon was ultimately cleared of charges through a non-indictment decision.
G-Dragon recently signed an exclusive contract with Galaxy Corporation and announced the establishment of a foundation dedicated to eradicating drugs. He also hinted at a comeback as the main focus of his activities in 2024.
In a handwritten letter, G-Dragon confessed, “I went through a difficult time recently, but thanks to the concern and support from those around me, I was able to overcome it. I’m thankful to everyone.”
