YG Entertainment released an official statement denying that Han Seo Hee was ever a trainee at the company.
Dispatch reported that B.I of iKON attempted to buy marijuana and LSD off ‘A’ in 2016 which led to the idol leaving iKON and the company after the story emerged. ‘A’ alleges that YG had ties to the police and buried the evidence that tied B.I to the crime. ‘A’ was eventually revealed to be Han Seo Hee.
The statement reads as follows:
‘A’, the person known as the informant, was never a trainee under YG Entertainment. 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 in this official statement.
– YG Entertainment
A task force is due to be established by the Gyeonggi Southern Provincial Police Agency to further investigate the case.
