G-Dragon booked by police

Previously a report of Soompi claimed that Police were not able to ‘reveal concrete details’ as the drug case is currently under investigation. It also mentioned that G-Dragon's alleged drug case has ‘no connection’ with the ongoing drug scandal involving Parasite actor Lee Sun Kyun.

Controversy in Korean entertainment industry

Reportedly, many more celebrities are under the scanner of the police on drug charges. It is believed that some of these celebrities have been booked too while more action will be taken by the authorities. This also caused rumours of BTS being involved in the matter as well.

However, BTS' agency BigHit Music recently issued a statement and clarified that the boy group is not a part of the ongoing investigation. Their statement read, “BTS is completely unconnected to the relevant rumour, and [the rumour] is not true in the slightest. We will take strong action against the indiscriminate circulation of rumours.”

Besides BTS, LE SSERAFIM’s Kim Chaewon, (G)I-DLE’s Jeon Soyeon, and singer-songwriter Park Sun Joo were also rumoured to be involved in the related case. Their agencies too denied the speculations of any involvement with drugs.
