Park Yoochun and his lawyer continue to deny that Park Yoochun took Philopon (a form of methamphetamine).
Park Yoochun’s lawyer Kwon Chang Bum has released his first statement since Park Yoochun’s drug test came out positive on April 19.
On April 25, the lawyer stated, “The results of the National Forensic Service cannot be denied. However, [Park Yoochun’s] stance that he did not do drugs remains unchanged. There isn’t much time left until the questioning to determine the validity of the pretrial detention warrant request, but we are looking into how the Philopon entered his body and was detected by the drug test initiated by the National Forensic Service.”
Previously on April 23, the Narcotics Unit of the Gyeonggi Nambu Provincial Police Agency requested a pretrial detention warrant based on the drug test results. Court questioning to determine the validity of the warrant will take place on April 26.
Meanwhile, C-JeS Entertainment announced Park Yoochun’s retirement and their decision to part ways with him on April 24.
