BOTB’s agency, Cube Entertainment, has issued a statement confirming that BTOB’s Ilhoon is under investigation for suspicions of marijuana use.
On the 21st of December, the outlet Channel A reported that Ilhoon was caught by the police after using marijuana. It has been reported that the police confirmed through testimonies from accomplices and checking bank account activity that Ilhoon used marijuana with others multiple times from four to five years ago until last year. To add on, it is said that drug components were detected through a hair follicle test. The police also reportedly found evidence that shows that Ilhoon purchased marijuana using cryptocurrency instead of cash to evade the police. His case is said to have been forwarded to the prosecution in July. As of now, Ilhoon is carrying out his mandatory military service after enlisting in May of this year. Later on December 21st, Cube Entertainment released the following statement:
“Hello, this is Cube Entertainment.
