In July of 2019, the K-pop industry was taken by storm after it was reported that then-iKON's B.I. was suspected of drug usage through purchasing cannabis and LSD between April and May 2016. YG Entertainment released an official statement, saying that the label conducts monthly drug tests coming from the USA, and none of the members of iKON tested positive. However, shortly after the news broke out, the idol left the group, which shocked the inndustry, especially iKONics.
Months have passed and the investigation team declared that he tested negative of illegal drugs. While many rejoiced over this positive news, some remain curious whether Hanbin will be reclaiming his seat on where he used to be or move on to a new career.
Nevertheless, fans are eager to wait for the final verdict in the coming days. Meanwhile, YG's parallel case was sent to the prosecution as well.
