Park Bom might quit ‘Roommate’ indefinitely

By  | 

Industry insiders are saying Park Bom will leave SBS’s ‘Roommate’ for good.

The 30-year-old singer was reported to have not shown up for last Saturday’s scheduled recording.

Park Bom will not meet the cast members currently in Japan, despite recently wrapping up a concert in Japan on Sunday.

Park was embroiled in a drug scandal earlier this month for allegedly smuggling 82 amphetamine pills four years ago from the US to South Korea, where it is illegal.

It is said that her mother and grandmother were sending her the drugs, which are legal through prescription in the US.

YG’s Yang Hyun-suk refuted the rumours and said that Park didn’t know that the drugs were illegal in Korea and that she was prescribed with the drugs after witnessing a traumatic event while living in the US.

Park, who is a regular cast member on the show said she had no confidence continuing filming for the show.

“I’m really sorry to everyone for causing huge controversy.  I have no confidence to film normally because I feel so terrible.” She said in a statement released by YG Entertainment last week.

Roommate follows the daily lives of celebrities living in a shared house.

    I’m just going to point out that 2NE1 was #62-3 on billboard while SNSD couldn’t surpass the 100’s place with either “twinkle twinkle” or “mr mr” and when crush was released 2ne1 remained in the top for weeks on international charts and Korea. Both groups are great, there’s no need to try and disclose one as less.

    I liked watching RM because Bom was Korean American at one point (and I’m also asian american myself). It’s fascinating to see how asian americans function in ethnically asian countries. Now that she’s gone I probably won’t watch RM anymore. Then again I’m just another international viewer and I don’t think International viewership counts for much anyway…

    I’ve just read up some articles ( I haven’t followed up) but it seems that Parks mother and father did know, but does that mean Park Bom knew? Or does that mean they were desperate enough to do this for their daughter?
    Also, Segye has said it was an invalid prescription and that it was purchased illegally. If he knows this information than he would have violated US laws. Specifically “Hipaa” laws.
    So I don’t know if everything he’s saying is even creditable at this point.

    In Korea Bom has a lot more hate than she does support, and you obviously are obsessed with the Joss girl, hence why you had a lengthy discussion attacking someone who probably has mental health issues – low.

    I knowww, a drug dealer? People are ignorant, because she takes strong medication for depression because she went through a traumatic experience and then people make fun of that and call her a drug addict? People on the Internet have more balls then they do in real life because they would never ever say the things they do on the Internet directly to anybody’s face. People should check themselves because that’s just inhuman. Then they try and idolize people thinking they are flawless lol..every idol has there con and you just need to accept it and not deny it lol. Because once you do you end up like “#jossslays” -_-

But then there’s sones and other fandoms involved that attack their beautiful group for dating, like ..that’s pretty sad lol

    Yeah I get you. I’m a blackjack and especially a Bombshell but I have nothing against SNSD or Sones I just have problems with these people that say they care so much about the kpop world but then go on and try to bash a specific group because they belong to a fandom.
    In my opinion I think SNSD has the same music all the time and when they try and branch out..it’s kinda awkward? They are talented but I’m just left like “why did they try” on some of there music tracks. In the other hand 2NE1 has there ups and downs too so yeah.

    **and totally agree, I feel YG entertainment knows how to treat people more like humans then as objects.

    A major flaw in your analysis is the fact that you don’t distinguish between a regular prescription medication and a Schedule II controlled substance. The latter is subject to so many more restrictions in the US.

    In particular, look at “Delivery of a Controlled Substance to Persons Outside the U.S.” at the bottom of the link:

    I read some articles online that involves YG and she always has something negative to say. Not even disagreeing,she flat out just spurs out negativity. I don’t follow her actually, but she always seems to be trying to start stuff in the comment section. And..it’s kinda sad that if she actually did do those things she wouldn’t be sitting around commenting on a bunch of posts relating to Big Bang or 2NE1 and saying “#jossslays”. Like please, calm yourself.

    And to think that 2NE1 is not active in Variety Shows, and Park Bom being in Roommate was a Joy for all their Fans and now she’s gone i feel that 2NE1 will not participate in Variety Shows in a long time.

    Plus after Segyo Ilbo posted the article about the Ampetamine being prescribed illegally in the USa and that she lied about her age and others made many readers went on a debate.

    Then suddenly they are saying that she did have a prescription for it legally and that her age is accurate and more, and now they are going they are just providing what the readers wants, which is a bunch of Bullshit!!
    They published lies one after another making readers debate here and there while these Bloggers and Journalist are earning money from us!! While Park Bom Suffers!!

    And all they can say is that we will dig their way to the truth!! Well what truth did they really provide us, they brush up the truth with lies with no remorse at all!!!

    Why did it have to end like this? Just cause someone posts rumours of a celebrity now that celebrity has to quit television? I am dissapointed on how Korea is handling news and does not care about the misery they bring upon other people. This does not bring a good image of Korea to the rest of the world. I thought they are considerate people, but I was wrong. Where I live health issues are confidential, no matter if the person is celebrity or not. Some things are better kept private such as health issues which is very delicate information for a person to handle.

    The way in which Segye Ilbo targeted Bom is just heartless, shows just how low “journalism” has fallen, if we can even call it that. The whole issue made me think about what celebrities are put through, they way they’re treated is inhumane. Someone with a conscience would think twice about putting out stories that tell only one side of the story. They maliciously stretched lies and made the whole issue more than it should have been.

    It’s a shame really, if Bom does end up quitting Roommate because she was finally coming out of her shell and it was wonderful watching her because she was true to herself. She’ll always have this 4 year old closed case hovering over her now, and it’ll be a long while before she’s able to free herself.
