Trash Yoochun Receives Probation Sentence For Purchasing And Using Drugs + Apologizes To Fans

Park Yoochun has received a sentence for violating the Narcotics Control Act.

On July 2 at 10 a.m. KST, a sentencing hearing for Park Yoochun was held at the Suwon District Court. Several fans were in attendance.

During the previous hearing on June 14, prosecutors requested a year and six months in prison and 1.4 million won (approximately $1,182) in fines for Park Yoochun.

At the recent hearing on July 2, the court stated, “[Park Yoochun] is charged with purchasing 1.5 grams of Philopon with Hwang Ha Na and injecting [the drug] on seven occasions. He is confessing to his crime, and he admits to being guilty of all charges.”

Park Yoochun was given a 10-month prison sentence suspended for two years of probation and treatment and fined 1.4 million won (approximately $1,182). This means that if he commits an offense during the two-year probation period, he will receive a 10-month prison sentence.

[Trigger Warning] Criticism rises over leniency towards child rapist

Criticism is mounting over a recent high court ruling that commuted a prison term for a child rapist.

The court said the 10-year-old victim's testimony was insufficient to prove there was "enough threat and physical assault" that made the victim unable to defend herself ― which would constitute a rape charge.

In the June 13 ruling, the Seoul High Court handed down a three-year jail term to the offender, a cram school teacher surnamed Lee, 35. The sentence was reduced drastically from an earlier term of eight years given by a local court.

Absolutely disgusting. He should suffer for longer than his victim, who will probably have a lifetime of trauma.

Tom Holland makes a hospital visit in Seoul



When Spiderman started his Seoul promotional tour on June 29, he kept one mission secret from the Korean press and public ― a visit to cheer up sick children at Seoul National University Hospital.

British actor Tom Holland, who gives life to the Marvel Comics hero, paid the surprise visit to the children's hospital inside the large medical compound in Jongno District on Monday. He was almost fully in character ― wearing the tight Spiderman outfit and pretending to shoot webs from his wrists ― but he did not wear the mask.

As part of hospital infection-control etiquette, he donned a face mask and covers for his feet.

image

-Jang Ki Yong and Im Soo Jung for High Cut Magazine talked about their new drama, and working together.

-“When I first received and read the script, I thought that it was a female character I hadn’t really seen before in Korean dramas,” said Im Soo Jung in an accompanying interview. “I felt like it was quite rare.”

-"Ki Yong matches really well with his character Park Mo Gun in ‘Search: WWW.’ Compared to other actors his age, Ki Yong has a calm, mature side to him in real life. We have good teamwork while acting, so I’m curious as to how our chemistry will be perceived by viewers. I know that Ki Yong has many fans, and I think that he’ll have even more fans after the drama ends.”

-Jang said that the Im projecs he liked were, ‘Finding Mr. Destiny,' ‘I’m Sorry, I Love You,' and ‘I’m a Cyborg, But That’s OK.' And that it feels fascinating and exciting getting to work with her on the show.

-“[My character] doesn’t really have a cold or scary side. I can say that he’s the brightest character out of the ones I’ve portrayed so far. New charms seep out of him every time, and I also look forward to what he’ll do every time the script comes out.”
