2NE1's Park Bom accused of drug smuggling + Yang Hyun Suk's statement

Posted: 30 Jun 2014 07:39 PM PDT



A shocking news came upon Blackjacks when an exclusive article from Segye Ilbo about Park Bom accused of drug smuggling released online.

It was revealed belatedly that 2NE1's Park Bom had a case of smuggling drugs in 2010 but got suspended until now. She was caught on October 12, 2010 at Incheon Airport customs trying to take in 82 pills of narcotic amphetamines from US using international courier.

People are wondering how Bom avoided the case all this while when her smuggling case wasn't even booked and instead got suspended. In Bom's defense, it was stated in some articles that the pills were prescribed by a doctor from the US but it is strictly illegal in Korea.

In response to the rage of netizens flocking over Bom's articles, a personal statement was written under the name of Yang Hyun Suk, instead of YG Entertainment claiming that he personally knew what happened before more than anyone else from the agency.

Read below:

[OFFICIAL] Hello, this is Yang Hyun Suk.. 
I wanted to explain about the report of misunderstanding that had suddenly spread yesterday night. 
Why is this being explained through Yang Hyun Suk's letter and not as an official YG statement? 
To be accurate, the content in the article was something that happened 4 years ago, and something that I was first told of then when Park Bom's parents came to us and told us that they had been investigated, and also about a shocking incident Bom had experienced in the past and her medical history. So until then, all of YG as well as the 2NE1 members had no knowledge of this. 
That's why I thought that rather than to have YG, which doesn't really know the situation, release an official statement, it is better for me, who directly heard of all this [from Bom's parents], to tell you about it. 
Your feelings about the article as a producer?If you combine the training years, then the amount of time I've been with 2NE1 is 9 years. The 2NE1 members I have watched over for 9 years do not smoke... do not drink much... and seems to me to have never once to gone out to hang out at a club besides for official events.At least from what I know, that's how it is... and also because I've never heard of rumors of that sort from those around me.But the Bom that I know to be this way has suddenly become overnight a 'drug smuggler' according to the title of the article.It's absurd and shocking that I don't know what to start off saying?Should I be explaining this absurdity? Will that end up making this situation even bigger?It's true that these did momentarily present a concern. However, for all the fans of 2NE1, who are currently on their world tour... for the silly and dongseng-like Bom who became a drug smuggler over night, I thought that I couldn't just sit back and watch. 
What is the truth? As fans already know, Park Bom spent a long time in the U.S. before 2NE1 debut, and she has said that there was a time when she dreamed of becoming a soccer player. However, she directly witnessed a close friend dying during a game, and after that, Bom had spent difficult days as she fell into sorrow and shock that was difficult for her to handle at a young age. After that, she spent several years receiving psychological counseling and treatment and used drugs that were prescribed to her by a famous university hospital in the U.S. After that incident, Park Bom was no longer able to continue on with soccer, and after changing her dreams to that of becoming a singer, she came to Korea and participated in the YG audition. It's a day I remember clearly. The reason that I remember Park Bom among the numerous audition contestants is because as soon as I saw her, she had boldly stated, "If it's not YG, I'm not going to be a singer." Although she didn't pass that audition, she came again the year after that and she didn't make it again, but in her third year, she qualified in first place among the thousands that had participated, so I think that is why Park Bom remains clear in my memory. The reason why I am talking about these seemingly irrelevant matters is that considering that I did not know that she played soccer or about her medical history until her father told me 4 years ago, even though it's been 11 years since I first saw Bom, and that she's never brought this up to her members, it seems clear that this is a painful memory that Bom doesn't want to bring back 
Up until 4 years ago, Bom had been using the medication that she had been formally prescribed by the university hospital in the U.S., but because she could not go to the States due to her busy schedule, in the process of receiving the medication her mom and grandmother, it had become a problem because it as a medication that was prohibited in Korea.But luckily, her medical record over the past several years and her prescription from the university hospital were received and submitted during the investigation, so it was an event that was safe and soundly wrapped up with every evidence being provided. 
It's said [the drug] has narcotic properties, did they know of this? In common sense, what mother and grandmother would go get their daughter and grandmother narcotic?Especially in a world like today when most medications need prescriptions, how many people know of what kind of properties a medication has? Like I mentioned through my appearance on 'Healing Camp', before, I have to carry around a sedative and take it on a daily basis because of my panic attacks, but I am not curious about what properties make up that medication and even if someone told me, I wouldn't understand very well. In the case of Bom, she only knew that the medication she took in the States was not available in Korea. It doesn't seem she understood that it was a medication that was prohibited in Korea. After realizing this after the investigation 4 years ago, from what I know, she has been using another medication prescribed by a university hospital in Korea. Because they've been busy with their world tour, I haven't seen Park Bom in a while either, but I ran into her when I came out of the office to record last night and saw her shed tears throughout the night because of the articles coming out. After seeing her this way, I feel torn that it has come to a situation where I have to explain a past that Bom does not want to reveal. I want to wrap up my words as I apologize for bringing about worry to many of you. I will greet you again with happy news soon. Thank you.  
2014.07.01 
Sincerely,
Yang Hyunsuk
