iKONICs rejoice! It’s revealed that former member B.I (real name Kim Hanbin, 김한빈) has tested negative in his drug test, wrapping up the investigation of his alleged illegal substance abuse scandal.
According to Sports World, the 25-year-old received the results at the Gyeonggi Southern Provincial Police Agency yesterday (Thursday, 27th February).
The cops had sent his body hair sample to the National Forensic Service for examination, and the results showed that no illegal substances were detected. “It is true that the drug test result is negative,” the police confirmed in an official statement.
Excited fans took to Twitter to celebrate the news, along with the hashtag #HelloHanbinIsFree. Most of them sent hopeful and encouraging words towards the talented star, expressing their eagerness to see him back.
Some even asked for him to return to being a member of the YG Entertainment boy group. For those in the dark, B.I sadly departed from iKON as a result of the controversy that came to light back in June 2019.
Check out some of their tweets here:
