Yoo Ah In‘s side recently released a statement regarding the ongoing allegations of another alleged drug use.
On the 12th, Yoo Ah In’s side stated, “We would like to correct the facts regarding the ongoing situation where news with unconfirmed content is continuously being spread and disseminated by the media for reasons unknown to us, including undisclosed investigation details that are subject to non-disclosure agreements.”
On the day after news of Yoo Ah In’s second summons for questioning was released, the 11th, the Kukmin Ilbo reported exclusively on the suspicions of drug use by Yoo Ah In, with the headline, “Yoo Ah In, Model and Broadcaster Meet at Itaewon Club Every Week…Suspected of Drug Use.” The article contained a tip from a witness who suspected that Yoo Ah In had allegedly used drugs with models and broadcasters at the Itaewon club last year. The article also stated that Yoo Ah In’s regular seat emitted a different scent from cigarette smoke and that he had smoked “something” in the form of a cigarette.
Yoo Ah In’s side also took issue with a solo report from Yonhap News TV titled, “Yoo Ah In Suspected of Fifth Drug Use, Overdose of Zolpidem,” which reported that Yoo Ah In is under investigation for excessive use of Zolpidem, following allegations of propofol, marijuana, cocaine, and ketamine use by the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency’s drug crime investigation unit.
