However, since ‘Show Me the Money 3’, Iron has been at the center of controversy, with various gossip rather than music. In 2016, after being investigated by the police for smoking marijuana (violating the Substances Control Act, etc.), he was turned over to the prosecution and charged without detention.  After three months, he released a new song, and his unrepentant move angered netizens.

In addition, in 2018, Iron was charged with harming and intimidating his ex-girlfriend, A. At the time, Iron was accused of smashing A in the face, injuring her with a knife. In a subsequent trial, the court sentenced Iron to eight months in prison with a two-year probation and 80 hours of community service.

In December 2020, Iron was arrested by the police on charges of assaulting his roommate B – a high school student who was learning music from him with a baseball bat (special injury). At the time of the arrest, Iron is said to have explained that “it was for discipline.”
