Hwang Hana reportedly admitted to using drugs, but denied the worse charge of distribution as well as any ties to police corruption.
According to a slew of media outlets, Hwang is suspected of administering Philopon, a form of methamphetamine between May to June and September of 2015. She and her attorney admitted to all charges of drug usage. They made the excuse that Hwang first administered Philopon in 2015, but stopped for three years. She took the drug again as her celeb friend “A” suggested it in late 2018 until lately. Hwang confided that she wanted to stop Philopon, but “A” pressured her into it continuously.
However, her statement seemed to lose credibility when her previous misconduct was disclosed. According to a media outlet, in September 2015, Hwang was charged with violating the Narcotics Control Act under suspicions of taking 0.5grams of Philopon with a college student identified by their last name Cho.
Hwang allegedly bribed Cho to take the fall for her drug charges at that time. Cho, who was sentenced to a punishment of two years and six months in prison and was suspended for three years, had taken the hush money of $87,424 in cash. It was also revealed that during Cho’s ruling, Hwang allegedly administered shots of 0.16grams of Philopon to Cho’s arm three times. Back then, Jongno Police Station forwarded her case to the prosecution recommending non-indictment due to lack of evidence, and the prosecution disposed the case as non-suspicion. The recording evidence reports of her saying to her friend over the phone, “My dad is best friends with the Police Commissioner.” This report brought about police corruption.
Now, the police stated that nothing could be revealed as the investigation is still ongoing. However, another important celeb regarding Hwang’s drug scandal has come to the surface. Park Yoo Chun, Hwang’s ex-fiance, has met her continuously though they broke up last May. Police have recorded Park and Hwang for using drugs together multiple times early this year. It is reported that after Hwang’s testimony that she used drugs with Yoo Chun, the police investigated and secured a large amount of objective evidence to send to prosecution.
Park held a press conference to publicly deny what Hwang referred to on April 10th. He stated, “I have never used drugs let alone suggest them. I beat myself up every day, coping pain and working hard to be able to be back on track, reflecting on what happened in the past. That said, I cannot even imagine that I would think of using drugs, which would make all of my efforts amount to nothing. I will sincerely cooperate with the police and be investigated.”
However, Yoo Chun was found to be innocent and some women were sentenced to two years in prison for false accusations and attempted extortion. C-Jes Entertainment released a statement saying, “Park Yoo Chun would like to offer his deepest apology to the public, and will use this incident to reflect on himself.”
