YG Entertainment releases official statement denying that Han Seo Hee was ever a YG trainee
Recently, Dispatch reported that B.I had allegedly tried to buy marijuana and LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) from “A” in 2016. Since then, B.I has posted on his Instagram account and announced his departure from iKON and YG Entertainment, with the agency confirming the news. “A” filed a report to the Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission claiming that YG had ties to the police and used that to conceal B.I’s involvement in the 2016 drug case, and the identity of “A” was revealed to be Han Seo Hee.
On June 17, YG Entertainment released a statement that read, “‘A,’ the person known as the informant, was never a trainee under YG Entertainment.” They explained, “Though we have made requests to media outlets to make corrections, wrong information continues to be reported. Therefore, we would like to reaffirm the fact [that ‘A’ was never a YG trainee] once more through this official statement.”
The Gyeonggi Southern Provincial Police Agency has announced that they will be forming a task force to further investigate the case, and “A” is expected to be called in for further questioning.
