Park Bom’s real age being questioned after drug scandal
Park Bom’s real age is being questioned after old articles may have shown that the singer may be older than what she claims.
An article from old American newspaper surfaced online earlier this week revealing Park Bom’s traumatic soccer event, which led to the 2NE1 singer being prescribed with amphetamine.
However, after the article surfaced online, many netizens pointed out that the 1998 article wrote that Park Bom was in ‘sophomore’, which meant that Bom would have been around 15-16, making her older than what she claims.
The singer’s known date of birth is currently March 24, 1984, which means she is 30 years old or 31 in Korea.
If going by the facts reported by the American newspaper, Bom’s would have been born in 1983 or 1982, two years earlier than what is known.
In addition, many netizens have pointed out that a video from 2007 of Bom training said that she was 25, which meant she would have been 32 years old this year.
Park Bom’s drug scandal came to light after a Korean publication, Segye Ilbo reported that Bom tried to ‘smuggle’ drugs in from America to Korea in 2010.
YG came to her defence and said that he was aware of her prescription after she told him about a traumatic soccer event when she was still studying in America.
A newspaper article from 1998 and 2000 then showed that Park Bom witnessed a friend dying on the field during a soccer game.
