Han Seo Hee ( 한서희) is back in the headlines, ladies and gents! It was reported that the controversial figure, who was previously charged after testing positive for drugs during her probation period, has been sentenced to prison in the first trial and was later arrested in court.
Yesterday (Wednesday, 17th November), the Suwon District Court Seongnam Branch 1st Criminal Division sentenced the 26-year-old YouTuber to one year and six months in jail, as she was assessed to be a flight risk (a person likely to flee), Koreaboo reported.
“Ms. Han stated that her paper cup fell in the toilet during her urine test, which was conducted at the probation office. However, there was no such evidence that indicated her sample was mixed with content from the toilet, as revealed in the analysis from the National Forensic Service,” the court stated.
They continued by revealing, “We rejected her claim that her urine test was mixed with someone else’s samples. There were only two other individuals who were testing at the same time as Ms. Han, and both of them were men.”
That being said, it appears that Seo Hee didn’t react too kindly to the decision. According to a report by News1, the former YG Entertainment trainee could be heard yelling and swearing at the judge following her prison sentence. She reportedly shouted, “F**k, seriously? I won’t run away! What are you doing, judge? There’s no reason to put me in prison.”
The judge then responded by saying, “If you’re not happy with the judgement, then you can appeal (for the sentencing) in accordance to the procedure.” However, Han Seo Hee continued to curse at the judge, saying, “Judge. What are you doing? Ah f**k,” as she was escorted out of the courtroom.
The media outlet also reported that Seo Hee caused a scene in the waiting room, and her voice could be heard in the courtroom. On top of that, it was said that she also lashed out at the Justice Ministry staff and even made a commotion on the prison bus as well.
Seo Hee is arguably no stranger when it comes to drug abuse scandals. Previously, the K-pop trainee was sentenced to three years in prison, in addition to four years of probation after admitting to her marijuana usage. Back in July 2020, she was tested positive for using psychotropic drugs (including methamphetamine and amphetamines), and was once again detained by the authorities.
