Actress Yoo Ah-in (Eom Hong-sik, 36), who is suspected of habitual drug administration, such as propofol, was also spared arrest this time.
Yoon Jae-nam, a senior judge at the Seoul Central District Court, dismissed the arrest warrant for infants and accomplices suspected of violating the Narcotics Control Act (cannabis) on the 21st. The court said, “There is a lack of need for arrest due to the fact that we acknowledge the smoking of marijuana, have a large amount of evidence, and the housing is constant.”
Earlier in May, an arrest warrant was filed, but it was rejected once, saying, “There is a large amount of evidence and the suspect also acknowledges basic facts.” The prosecution, which took over the case, requested an arrest warrant again after discovering additional charges that Yoo Ah-in ordered his acquaintance to destroy evidence and forced his party to smoke marijuana in the U.S. after a reinforcement investigation. An acquaintance, identified only by his last name Choi, was also charged with an arrest warrant on the same charges. Yoo Ah-in, however, is not on the verge of arrest again this time.
Yoo Ah-in, who attended the warrant review earlier in the day, told the interviewer, “I’m sorry for continuing to cause great concern,” adding, “I’ll answer sincerely and honestly in court.” Yoo Ah-in, who came out of the warrant review in about three hours, was also hit by a bundle of money thrown by a citizen, saying, “Use it as a detention fund.”
Since 2020, Yoo Ah-in is accused of repeatedly administering medical drugs such as propofol worth 500 million won through “Hospital Shopping” under the guise of sleep anesthesia of cosmetic procedures at hospitals in Seoul, and illegally prescribing and administering about 1,000 sleeping pills in the name of others. In addition, he is accused of taking cocaine and marijuana in the United States with four people, including his acquaintance Choi, in January
