Breaking: 2NE1’s Park Bom hit with drug smuggling allegations
Various reports from Korea have alleged Park Bom was caught with smuggling illegal substances today.
StarDaily, EDaily and KBS News reported that Bom tried to ship 82 amphetamine pills in October 2010 to South Korea, but was caught by Korean customs at Incheon Airport.
It is alleged that the 2NE1 singer tried to smuggle the pills from the United States through international mailing.
Park Bom’s drug smuggling case was registered by a prosecutor, but she was not charged for the drug-related crime. The case was closed soon after.
YG Entertainment has said they are holding an emergency meeting to verify the reports. They will soon release a statement.
Amphetamine is an illegal substance in the United States.
They are stimulant drugs, which means they speed up the messages travelling between the brain and the body and are usually the same substance as speed.
