Police conduct search and seizure of Park Yoochun
On April 16, the Gyeonggi Southern Provincial Police Agency’s Drug Investigation Unit stated that the police began conducting a search and seizure of Park Yoochun since 9 a.m. KST.
11 police officers were put in to search Park Yoochun’s house in Hanam of Gyeonggi Province, his car, and his cell phone. Furthermore, the police also collected a hair sample from the singer for drug testing.
The police are investigating Park Yoochun after Hwang Ha Na claimed that she had been coerced into taking drugs by a celebrity friend. Afterwards, speculations arose that the friend was Park Yoochun due to the former romantic nature of their relationship, but the singer denied the allegations in a press conference on April 10.
Regarding the search and seizure, Park Yoochun’s legal representative Kwon Chang Bum said, “Our statement [that Park Yoochun is not guilty of using drugs] still stands.”
The singer is expected to undergo questioning on April 17 at the earliest.
