Again on October 25, it was reported that G-Dragon had been booked by the Incheon Metropolitan Police Company on drug-related costs. Simply two days later, G-Dragon personally released an announcement by way of his authorized consultant to firmly deny the allegations.
On November 6, G-Dragon voluntarily visited the Incheon Metropolitan Police Company’s Narcotics Unit for questioning and supplied samples for complete evaluation by the Nationwide Forensic Service. Following the questioning, he personally addressed the continued challenge with the media.
Nonetheless, on November 10, some media retailers reported that G-Dragon had visited the police workplace with all physique hair eliminated aside from his head hair and that the police could suspect him of trying to tamper with proof.
Later that day, G-Dragon’s lawyer lawyer Kim Soo Hyun issued an official assertion to the media, refuting these claims and saying strict authorized actions towards the false studies.
That is Kwon Ji Yong’s (G-Dragon’s) advisory counsel, lawyer Kim Soo Hyun of K1 Chamber LLP.
Immediately, there have been studies claiming that G-Dragon shaved all of his physique hair besides his head earlier than the police investigation and that the police have raised suspicions of him trying to tamper with proof.
The report about him shaving his whole physique is totally unfaithful. Moreover, the courtroom has rejected this case resulting from a scarcity of proof, and consequently, no search and seizure warrant associated to hair has been issued. Regardless of these circumstances, Kwon Ji Yong believes that promptly revealing the precise reality can swiftly remove suspicions, therefore, he voluntarily attended [the police office for questioning] and actively cooperated with the investigation by submitting not solely urine and hair but additionally nails and toenails. Furthermore, he had even firmly expressed his willingness to voluntarily present further samples, equivalent to leg hair, past the top hair samples initially requested by the police.
Regardless of studies from the police aspect implying that Kwon Ji Yong shaved his physique hair with the intention of tampering with proof, it’s essential to spotlight that, in actuality, he had maintained hair of enough size for verification and willingly submitted hair within the amount requested by the police. Moreover, regardless of his clear assertion throughout voluntary questioning that he had not been dyeing or bleaching his hair, media studies urged, ‘Relying on the size of the hair, it’s doable to substantiate one’s use of medication for as much as a few 12 months. Nonetheless, if, like Kwon Ji Yong, one continuously undergoes coloring or bleaching as a result of nature of their career, the drug elements could lower.’ We need to clearly state that previously roughly 1 12 months and 5 months, Kwon Ji Yong has not undergone any coloring or bleaching.
Moreover, Kwon Ji Yong acknowledged throughout police questioning that he normally shaves his physique hair. Nonetheless, for the reason that investigation was first reported and initiated, he has not shaved in any respect. Regardless of clearly expressing no intention of proof tampering, the police unexpectedly reached conclusions and employed language suggesting that G-Dragon tried to tamper with proof to hide against the law, constituting a severe case of defamation. Regardless of this [being a case of defamation], inaccurate studies conflicting with the precise details had been launched with out prior affirmation from Kwon Ji Yong’s aspect, which we discover deeply regrettable.
To conclude, the police’s declare that G-Dragon shaved his whole physique to hide proof is totally groundless, and as of now, the preliminary article that first reported this [misinformation] has been corrected.
Sooner or later, we are going to take robust authorized motion towards such speculative reporting. We request the media to have interaction in accountable and cautious reporting primarily based on details to forestall irreparable hurt to G-Dragon (Kwon Ji Yong), who’s a outstanding public determine.
