In a recent turn of events, South Korean artist and K-pop sensation G-Dragon faced allegations of drug-related charges, which initially shook the entertainment world.
However, following his first round of questioning on November 6, G-Dragon has personally addressed the media, shedding light on the situation.
The controversy began back on October 25 when reports emerged that G-Dragon had been booked by the Incheon Metropolitan Police Agency on drug-related charges. Just two days later, the artist released a statement through his legal representative, firmly denying the allegations. The response from his legal team signaled his intent to clear his name and maintain his innocence.
On October 30, G-Dragon’s lawyer provided an update, revealing that the artist had submitted a statement of intent for voluntary attendance at the Incheon Metropolitan Police Agency’s Narcotics Unit. This gesture was seen as a proactive step toward cooperation with the authorities and dispelling the allegations. The scheduled date for his voluntary attendance was November 6.
On November 6, G-Dragon personally visited the Incheon Metropolitan Police Agency’s Narcotics Unit for questioning, a moment awaited by fans and media alike. The artist arrived at 1:23 p.m. KST and underwent a thorough four-hour investigation by the authorities.
During the questioning, the police conducted an initial reagent test on G-Dragon, in addition to collecting urine and hair samples for comprehensive analysis by the National Forensic Service. In response to inquiries about the results of the preliminary reagent test, G-Dragon revealed, “The results came back negative. I’ve also requested an urgent thorough examination.” He added, “I hope the investigative agency can release the accurate results as soon as possible.”
The artist also addressed questions about submitting his mobile phone as potential evidence. He clarified, “I haven’t, but if it is needed in the future and is on the list of items to be submitted, I have informed [the police] that I am willing to submit it.” G-Dragon further expressed his willingness to cooperate with any additional summons for questioning, stating, “If they call me, I will comply.”
When asked if the police had presented any evidence against him, G-Dragon replied, “There was none. I don’t believe there would be any.” He acknowledged the police’s duty to investigate based on allegations, emphasizing that he is there to prove the allegations are unfounded. He said, “I hope for a fair resolution, and I hope that unverified claims will not be insisted upon.”
As for the details of the ongoing investigation, G-Dragon admitted, “This investigation in itself, both the police and I are not exactly sure of the circumstances. It’s ultimately the police’s decision whether my statements will help or not in their investigation.”
The artist concluded his statements by expressing his wish for a prompt release of the results of the detailed examination. In a message to his devoted fans, he said, “I hope you’re not too worried. I hope you believe in me and await [the results].”
