BIGBANG’s G-Dragon Denies Drug Use + Promises To “Actively Cooperate” With Investigations
BIGBANG’s G-Dragon has denied reports of his drug use and has promised to “actively cooperate” with police investigations.
On October 25, it was reported that G-Dragon had been booked by the Incheon Metropolitan Police Agency on drug-related charges.
While the police stated that they were unable to “reveal concrete details” because the case was “currently under investigation,” they clarified that it was a “separate case that has no connection to Lee [Sun Gyun],” who is currently being investigated for drug use.
Two days later, on October 27, G-Dragon’s attorney released a formal statement in which the singer personally denied having used drugs.
G-Dragon’s full statement is as follows:
This is Kwon Ji Yong [G-Dragon’s given name]. First, there is no truth to the [claim] that I have taken drugs. Additionally, I have no relation to the news reports about the violation of the Act on the Control of Narcotics, Etc. that was recently revealed in the media. However, because I know many people are concerned, I will actively cooperate with police investigations and will participate even more diligently.
