Han Seo Hee Allegedly Detained For Third Illegal Drug Abuse Offence
Han Seo Hee (한서희) is well-known for her involvement in illegal drug abuse cases, among many other controversies. According to reports, she has been detained again for the same reason.
Previously, she was under investigation after she was caught smoking marijuana with T.O.P of BIGBANG in 2016. While there are countless reports regarding her involvement in similar controversies with South Korea’s top names, this one is reportedly her own doing.
According to Allkpop, she has been charged with her third illegal drug offence. The former idol trainee is currently awaiting the start of her court trial. She was previously indicted by the prosecution in January 2022 for her use of ‘philopon’, a brand name for the drug methamphetamine, while she was at home in July 2021.
After her first offence in 2016, she tested positive for drugs again in 2020 during her probation period. As a result, a probation officer from the Ministry of Justice conducted an unannounced urine test on her and found she had violated the Psychoactive Drug Administration Law. The YouTuber was sentenced to a year and 6 months in prison by the Suwon District Court.
It wasn’t stated how she was caught again, but if it is confirmed to be her third offence, the sentence will be more severe. She was also involved in the trial of former YG Entertainment Yang Hyun Seok (양현석) as a witness and claimed to have been forced to remain silent regarding former iKON member B.I’s drug scandal.
Seo Hee is currently being held in Seoul’s Dongbu Detention Center while awaiting her trial results.
