Hello, this is Starship Entertainment.
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 10, ending the investigation for drugs and other charges filed to him.
In late October last year, there was a suspicion of smoking marijuana in Wonho, and the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency’s drug investigation team conducted an investigation into all drug charges. During the process, Wonho was fully cooperative in all investigation procedures, including scientific examinations by the investigative agencies. The Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency’s drug investigation unit conducted extensive investigations over the past five months, but was unable to find any charges, and closed its internal investigation on Wonho on March 10.
Regardless of the above facts, first of all, we (Starship Entertainment) and Wonho would like to apologize again for causing worries to fans. We also thank our Korean and foreign fans for their unwavering support while the investigation is on-going,
During the investigation, we try our best to minimize media exposure of Wonho and we appoint a lawyer to avoid unjust charges against him. We will continue to support Wonho so that he can the way he wants in the future.
Thank You.Please send us a message if there is/are any mistranslated words.
