Ex-Monsta X’s Wonho, napawalang-sala sa kaso ng droga
CLEARED na sa kaso ng paggamit umano ng marijuana ang Monsta X member na si
Wonho, ayon sa Seoul police.
“The Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency’s drug investigation team cleared Wonho, a former member of the idol group Monsta X, of all charges against him on March 10th after closing an investigation into the drug, including marijuana,” pahayag ng Starship Entertainment, agency ng boy band, sa isang pahayag na pinadala.
Nitong Oktubre, inanunsiyo ang pag-alis ni Wonho sa Monsta X kasunod ng pagpapawalang-bisa ng Starship sa kanilang kontrata. Inakusahan si Wonho ng hindi pagbabayad ng kanyang utang at renta, at paggamit ng marijuana noong 2013.
Sa pahayag na inilabas ng Starship, “In late October last year, allegations of marijuana smoking were raised against Wonho which consequently led the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency’s drug investigation team to investigate all drug charges on him.”
“During the investigation, Wonho actively cooperated with the police and all investigation procedures, including scientific examinations by the investigative agencies. The Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency’s drug investigation unit conducted extensive investigations for the past five months but was unable to find any charges.
Finally, on March 10th, Wonho’s internal investigation was concluded,” paliwanag ng agency.
Dagdag pa ng Starship, “Regardless of any above, we would like to apologize once again for the fact that Starship Entertainment and Wonho have caused great concern to our fans. We also thank all our fans for their unwavering support while the investigation was conducted.”
Nangako naman ang agency na susuportahan ang solo career ni Wonho.
“During the long investigation, we tried our best to minimize media exposure to Wonho and to appoint an attorney to ensure that there are no charges against him. We will continue to fully support Wonho for developing his own career in the future. Thank you,” pagtatapos ng Starship.
