Police Nearing Conclusion of G-Dragon Drug Use Investigation, Plans to Summon Lee Sun-kyun Again

SEOUL, The investigation into allegations of drug use by G-Dragon, a member of the K-pop group BIGBANG, is nearing completion, according to an official statement on Monday. Amidst ongoing speculation, the police are close to deciding whether to drop the case or proceed with charges against the singer.

According to Yonhap News Agency, Woo Jong-soo, chief of the National Office of Investigation, informed reporters that the investigation is in its final stages and that the results will be announced shortly. The probe began after a hostess at a bar claimed in December last year that G-Dragon had used drugs. However, multiple drug tests on G-Dragon, including detailed analyses of his hair and nail samples, have returned negative results. A senior police official indicated last month that despite these results, the possibility of drug use could still be considered under various circumstances.

In a related development, the police also plan to summon actor Lee Sun-kyun for further questioning over suspicions of marijuana and other illegal drug use. These allegations involve multiple incidents at the home of a hostess working at a high-end bar in Seoul's Gangnam district. Similar to G-Dragon, Lee Sun-kyun's initial drug tests, including thorough examinations of his hair samples, were negative. The investigation into Lee's case continues, particularly following his complaint against the hostess for alleged consistent blackmail.
