The police has decided to re-open the investigation regarding former iKON member B.I (김한빈)’s drug allegations.
The announcement was made by the Gyeonggi Southern Provincial Police Department in a press conference held on 2nd September 2019 (Monday).
In addition, they also revealed plans to look into the involvement of former YG Entertainment boss, Yang Hyunsuk who allegedly threatened the 23-year-old’s acquaintance known as ‘A’ – which was revealed to be Han Seohee – to keep her mouth shut from telling the truth about the case.
Han Seohee then filed a report to the Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission against the entertainment agency for their actions in trying to stop her from participating in the investigation. The commission that referred the case to the police, who then allocated it to the Seoul Central District Prosecutor’s Office.
The Gyeonggi-based police department also added that they have set up a task force team in order to look more into the case immediately after the report was made. And the police has reportedly agreed to handle the case by conducting their own investigation.
“We have discussed it with the prosecution team and are trying to persuade ‘A’ (Han Seohee) to be questioned by the police,” a representative from the policy stated. “We will thoroughly investigate these allegations so that no questions will remain.”
The B.I drug case has been ongoing since June this year.
