Joo Ji-hoon busted for drug use

Whoa. Five people have been busted for drug trafficking, selling, and/or use — and three of them celebrities.

Most shocking is the involvement of popular actor Joo Ji-hoon, of movies Antique Bakery and The Naked Kitchen.

A representative from the Seoul police’s drug investigation department told reporters on April 26, “Joo Ji-hoon was investigated and admitted to drug use.” Joo reportedly bought the drugs — which include Ecstasy and Ketamine — from a fellow celebrity. Two non-celebrity individuals were booked for drug use along with Joo, but the three were not jailed. Police have filed for arrest warrants for the traffickers, movie actress Yoon Seol-hee and model Yeh Hak-young.

According to the police, Yoon is suspected of having received approximately 100 million won ($75,000) from Yeh and others between August 2007 through December 2008. She allegedly traveled from Japan fourteen times to purchase, smuggle, and sell Ecstasy and Ketamine. (Yeh supposedly accompanied her several times.) The drugs had been smuggled into the country by concealing them in underclothes worn by Yoon.

Joo Ji-hoon is thought to have used the drugs on two occasions along with the other reported individuals, at a Kangnam club and at home.

The 26-year-old Joo Ji-hoon shot to fame after acting the lead role of the prince in the incredibly popular teen drama Goong (Princess Hours) in 2006, which he followed with the dark thriller drama Devil in 2007. Most recently, he took the lead in the manga-adapted film Antique Bakery and the offbeat romance The Naked Kitchen.

YIIIIKES. I’m guessing he’ll be dropped from the Tokyo Tower remake now — if not prevented from acting altogether. Drug use — particularly in South Korea — is a big, big deal, and potentially career-killing stuff. Don’t do drugs, folks!

 
UPDATE


Joo Ji-hoon, Yoon Seol-hee, Yeh Hak-young

There isn’t much information available on Yoon Seol-hee, other than that she is an actress who was born in 1982.

Yeh Hak-young, on the other hand, was born in 1983 and got his start as a model in 2001, and appeared in numerous clothing, cell phone, and other advertisements, as well as music videos for groups like SG Wannabe and Gavy NJ. He made his first acting appearance in the MBC Nonstop sitcom series, then acted in the 2006 cable television version of Dasepo Naughty Girls, and Hyun Bin and Lee Yeon-hee’s Millionaire’s First Love.

 
UPDATE 2

Yoon Seol-hee has confessed more names of individuals who took drugs from her. Of the approximately 15 additional names, there are seven or eight more celebrities. Police will be following with investigation of those additional parties, “some of whom are as widely known as Joo.” Eep! This thing could get big(ger) and ugly(er).

Am I shocked? No. Am I surprised? Yes!
I'm sure he knew the consequences of his actions but assumed he wouldn't get found out. Now he will have to pay the price. I give him credit for admitting it though.
My question is who else has their name on the list? Was JJH the biggest fish to be caught and that's why we are hearing about him first or are we in for more surprises?
I guess time will tell.

239 Anon yay i agree with your comments :)! His drug use shouldn't diminish him as an actor.He has so much potential, why deprive ourselves of talent? Its a shame an unrelated personal decision endangered his whole acting career >_<! Drug use or not, he was a good actor, and that should be enough for him to act.

i've spent nearly one and a half hour reading all the comment

@Belezza, i totally enjoyed your obligatory letter, KDrama drinking habbit is very disturbing and kids, please don't try to imitate them...

i always lived in a happy, secluded and priveledge/protected life, i don't smoke, drink, use drugs. i don't live in SK nor do i live in NAmerica, so i'm not going to start talking about different culture and such or even dared talking about the drug itself.
well my point is i hope JJH learn from his mistakes and people would give him a second chance (for 6 or more years), and for the anticipating news... well we'll just have to wait who are the names they're going to bring out...

@momo,

admittedly i haven't read up an all the comments here, so i really have no idea what people are saying, but to address your comments regarding E..

there's no way, no how that prolonged use of any medication esp those not prescribed by a medical personnel have no side effects.... whatever the medication or drugs use, there will always be side effect. even a simple painkiller can cause harm, be it physically or psychologically.

unfortunately, E's psychotropic effects cause a tendency for those who use it frequently to get addicted. the drug may not be chemically addictive but the effects it has is.
(btw, i am in the medical profession)
just to share information....

I love how in the US if a celebrity is caught doing drugs, we're all like "idiot. what a dumb.ass" but we'll still catch their next movie or buy their new album.
and in south korea, it's like, "omfg i am so disappointed. I'm not his/her fan anymore."

personally, I think that someone's personal life should be separate from their work life even though that's near impossible in the entertainment world. but seriously, if you didn't know Joo JiHoon did drugs, you would still watch his dramas and movies right? so just because you know he does drugs you won't watch his work? it's absurd.

Sincerely hope that JJH stop doing drugs, get help, learn from this and come back an even better actor. We look forward to more great works from him. This is NOT the end.

from popseoul: "Joo Ji-hoon was questioned by police as to his motivations to taking drugs. The model/actor explained that the drugs were to enhance his experience when listening to music and dancing. However, the police found that he and his accomplices were not sorry for possession of drugs."

so much for being stressed and pressured by work.
completely have no sympathy for drug users who have to face the law on their 'life choices'.

^^ popseoul is very sloppy with facts and i have not see anything saying about police calling them "not sorry" in any news (i read korean sites). until they name their information sources, i don't believe anything they write because you never know when something is true and when they're trying to make things up to be sensational. If JJH said that for sure it would be all over the news.

@stilldollx, thanks for that, although my point is more that I have not seen anything in popseoul's post reflected in the actual news coming out about the drug case. So I am curious to know where they got their information, because it seems out of nowhere. I'm reading all the stories to keep up with the latest details and i haven't seen anything to say that those who have been charged or arrested have been, as popseoul says, unrepentant for their actions.

ok, i think mookie and salt have misunderstood what i said. i said E and K are not chemically addictive. i did not rule out the fact that a person may become emotionally dependent on it based on their lifestyle, personality and personal choices. i also never said that it's totally "safe" to use these substances recreationally. from my personal experience, i know a ton of people who have tried E once or twice (or even 3 or 4 times) and never gotten addicted or had their life go down the tube. so i really don't believe that just because JJH may have tried it a few times, that yes he will probably become addicted, and eventually his body will become destroyed. all that baloney about "gateway drugs" and how doing this will lead to other worse things is exactly just that, baloney. i'm not here to compromise with your opinions, mookie. and it's the internet. people abuse this method of communication and spread much worse garbage than the things i've said. and even if we were face to face, i would defend my opinion till i'm blue in the face. but i get it. you come from a totally opposite position than me. i've never worked with drug addicts or psych patients with drug dependencies. that type of profession may gain you some insight, but i also believe it has hindered your ability to see beyond your total life and death perception of drugs. but that's just me. i know way more people who have experimented with drugs and live perfectly 'straight-edged' lives now with families and good jobs than addicts who have destroyed their lives because they dabbled a few times. that is where i'm coming from.

anyway, i don't want to discuss anymore about whether drugs are bad or not as bad as people think. my whole argument in the first place was that i don't think JJH should be so harshly criticized and scapegoated by the public for something that doesn't harm anyone (if he just used it and didn't traffick) but himself and in such small doses (if true), does not affect his acting in any way. he is an actor. and i say once again, what he does with his life is his business. this whole damn world is so concerned with other people's business, what they're doing behind their bedroom doors, what they're doing to their own bodies. if they actually took the time to look at their own issues, they wouldn't be so damn worried about other people.

"However, the police found that he and his accomplices were not sorry for possession of drugs"

The thing is, I'm not sure what that really means. Assuming Popseoul actually reported this correctly (hahahaha), it doesn't actually state that Joo Ji Hoon was "not sorry" about it. It says the POLICE believed they weren't sorry about it. (And why would law enforcement make excuses for JJH anyway?) And is it Joo Ji Hoon? Is it Yoon? Is it Yeh (not YEH)? They're lumped together as one response in this case.

It's just not human nature. You've been caught with drugs, you're being interrogated, you're extremely terrified that you'll never be able to go home. You're not going to be unrepentant. Unless you're Biggie Smalls. Then, you're just Notorious.

@251 mookie & @257 salt
Thank you both. You have said a lot of what I wanted to say and more.

My dad was a smoker for 40+ years until a massive heart attack and he then quit cold turkey. I remember asking him 5 years after he quit whether he misses his cigarettes. This was his answer : No, he did not miss his cigarettes but he missed those feelings he gets while smoking. I have never smoked but I thought my dad's answer was quite profound.

Get this everyone, a lot of Asian countries have very strict laws on drugs trafficking and/or abuse. Do you know the reason why? Law and policy makers know and understand that effects of drug use, dealing, trafficking will have adverse social, health and indirectly political repercussions. This is my up close and personal experience with the effects of a drug. My grand-aunt committed suicide because she couldn't deal with her son's initial stealing and later turned into death threats just to feed his addiction to get the next high. And you know what? My uncle is still taking drugs. He's been in and out of rehab more than a gaziilion times.
And his family still lives in fear of him and for him.

I have a few questions for everyone here :
1. Smell of cigarettes is ok but has anyone been turned on by a smokers' breath?
2. Does a smoker know what his/her own breath smells like?
3. Drinking is fun. Is vomitting or having a hangover fun? Is driving under the influence killing yourself and/or others fun?

I used to travel to Korea on business. I drank with my korean colleagues (all males by the way) after work. I know it as Soju but they called it industrial alcohol. I recall that someone was always the designated driver and not a DROP of alcohol passed through his lips. NO, I don't remember being piggybacked. Oh wait...Hyun Bin did.............IN MY DREAMS. zzzz...kekeke...zzzzz

Thanks for the constant updates, you are always a trusted source for me!
Things are getting so heated up over here, staying away from the drug debate...
All i'm saying is it's quite disgusting consuming anything that was stuffed in someone's panties for hours (as I read somewhere was the actress's mode of transporting the drug) and was probably cooked up in some shady basement...

@ Belleza, u seriously crack me up with your comments....

IMO, things could go either way for JJH, either scapegoat as public warning or slap on the wrist. if he should be so lucky to escape jail time, the one thing he should do immediately to save his career other than issuing public apologies is to GO STRAIGHT TO THE ARMY....asap if he could voluntarily enlist. Take on some hard duty, and come back a "Reformed Man." This is the one time when enlisting could probably save a stars career...This is big but it's likely something bigger will surface during the time he would be gone for, and this will become a distant memory.

So sad... just starting to grow some respect for him as an actor and now this. It's really quite a scandal for him since he's so private and there's usually no gossip about him floating around.
Hope whoever else is involved is not another promising talent...

@momo,

nope I have not misunderstood what's coming out of u.

Lucky for your friends, but do u know how many patients I've dealt with that r hooked? who just started out 'trying it out once or twice' and later got onto devastating addictions of multiple drugs?!?!?!? that is exactly what is frightening about what u r saying. Just coz u knew of 10, 20 peeps who r 'fine' after taking a couple illicit pills doesnt make it alright for u to make such outrageous conclusions.

AND again, the X or K or meth out there, it'll never be safe..... unless u made it yourself in your own lab, u cant tell what's in it and in the process of making ANY drugs there can be dangerous byproducts produced and mixed in, eg for X u can easily get another dose of Amphetamine (an upper) in one single pill. I bet u may feel like u're getting a bargain if u r a druggie. <_<

Again, once again word of advice for you and your friends: even if a substance that is not chemically addictive DOES NOT mean it's not addictive or have no abuse potential and u won't develop a dependence.

Wow, I'm really not surprised to see so much misinformation on this website.

1. You can't get physically addicted to Ecstasy

2. A lot of you seem to be sharing personal stories, but they're personal stories that are essentially non-sequitors. All drugs are not equal, and if you're addicted to ecstasy or marijuana then you've got a lot of other problems in your life.

3. As much as you can say that "Korea has it's own drug laws, people should know better"...well, at the same time, I believe that many laws are inimical to the human spirit and drugs laws are one of them. Think about it; drug laws, any drug laws, are essentially a governmental organization telling you what you can and can not put into your body.

If governments actually gave a shit about you, they'd outlaw alcohol and cigarettes because not only do those harm one person, the cause massive amounts of monetary and property damage to society at large. The crack wars of the nineties have NOTHING on the damage that alcohol and cigarretes have caused.

I'm not saying these guys are heroes or anything, but some of you need to get the fuck off your high-horses. Seriously, "I've never done blah blah blah"...who the hell cares? Have you ever drunk alcohol? Congrats, you've taken a drug far worse for your body than Ecstasy.

mookie, fair enough. we'll agree to disagree. however, can i just say, your argument that X and K are never safe because we don't know where it came from is not really because those drugs are bad but the illegal trafficking industry. some government officials and anti-prohibitioners believe that if drugs were sold legally and thus controlled, this would not be a problem in the first place:

"Often illegal drugs are purchased in the underground market, there is no care for hygiene, and drugs may be cut with other substances or sold under different guises to increase supply, sale, potential profit, or user addiction potential. This can be dangerous as even though numerous illegal drugs have very low toxicity levels (low potential for overdose) and low addiction potential their safety status can be altered dramatically if they contain other chemicals of which the buyer is unaware. This can increase the potential for unexpected effects, overdoses, and drug dependence. For instance, tablets sold as MDMA have commonly been found to contain methamphetamine as the primary active ingredient or include methamphetamine in addition to other drugs.[23] Methamphetamine has much higher comparative addictive potential than MDMA, and a higher risk of overdose as demonstrated by its LD50s."

anyway, just sayin'.

oh and fyi, there's no way the government would produce X and E? you may be right. but that has not stopped them from funding drug trafficking in the past. US government agencies and government officials have been caught trafficking drugs to finance US-supported terrorist actions in events such as the Iran-Contra Affair, and Manuel Noriega. so yeah, don't be so damn sure.

Dude...in the late 1800's and early 1900's, pretty much every drug manufacturer that was around WAS producing cocaine and heroin.

People were prescribing cocaine for everything. Coca-cola actually started as a Red Bull-esque "energy drink" made from cocaine.

And thanks for bringing up Coke (and heroin) Back then we didn't know fully about it's dangerous side effects, AND after it's brought to light with more research and such, do u see mass produced Coke with coke?!?!?

Back then there were limited knowledge of the science and pharmacology, now we know better. That's why all substances are weighed by their abuse potential/'harm' against their medicinal value.... there are many legal drugs that r very strictly controlled but still labeled with medicinal uses....and then there r some that just have abuse potentials under certain standards and hence the term 'illicit drug'.

IT's exactly the same logic as we can't be sure we know everything about these newer drugs such as X/K/meth, AND for u guys to just throwout statemts left and right saying it's 'safe' and it's a 'meh' drug unlike whatever...it's irresponsible.

Ok, this is my last attempt because you are either stubbornly wrong or just trolling.

EVERYONE knew the addictive side effects of Cocaine and Heroin in those days. Why do you think Britain forced China to start importing opium? They could have just as well forced China to import tea or cookies.

But they specifically used opium because they knew the effects.

Drugs were NOT outlawed because of their addictiveness. They were outlawed through a combination of racism and industrial greed (hemp makes thousands of products and opium was frequently used as a cheap painkiller)

They are.

Thus, they are drugs. Just because they are societally acceptable makes no difference at all. Not only that, but alcohol and tobacco have been proven to be far more destructive than "hard" drugs when ALL things are taken into account (think about cancer caused from smoking...missed work, hospital fees, family counseling, home-care, grief-counseling, etc).

Wow. Most people don't know much about cigarettes and alcohol. Those two on their own kill more people a year than crack or heroin put together. Cigarettes kill about 390,000 people a year. Alcohol kill about 80,000 people a year. Crack kills about 2,000 a year and heroin kills about 2,300 people a year. Here's the website that I pulled the numbers from. Here are couple more websites about cigarettes. There are plenty more websites that gives you guys more information.

http://www.cancer.org/docroot/PED/content/PED_10_2X_Cigarette_Smoking_and_Cancer.asp
http://www.fda.gov/Fdac/features/1997/797_smoke.html

People who think cigarettes or any other nicotine drug isn't as bad as illegal drugs really need to educate themselves better. I know more people who died from nicotine and alcohol compared to illegal drugs. Not that it's a shit load of people. I just know one person who died of drug overdose. 6 people from drinking and driving. 2 from nicotine caused cancers.

I just can't believe that there are people that look at using drugs as a normal thing or not a big deal just because there are others who also are doing it or must have use it.

Illegal drugs in whatever form and in whatever reason why somebody using it is not good. Do not be just be outraged that it's gonna kill someone's career but be concern why he resorted in doing it and the impact of what he has done to the his fans who adores him.

It is not even the question of how many times he used it, just the fact that he used it would mean that he is troubled or his values are screwed up in some way.

If laws in Korea are harsher than the US when it comes to drugs, I think JJH already knew that since he is a korean and thus he is not stupid to think he'll just get away with it the way those Hollywood actors.

I think it was a blessing that he was caught because what if he gets addicted to it, assuming that he's not yet. At least, he's been stopped. The downside is that his life will never be the same again. He knew that it was illegal and so he also is aware that if he's caught then there is repercussion.

I hope this could be a wake up call for others who are thinking of using it or is using it. I am not a fan of him but it is sad to see someone who just lost his career because whether you like it or not, his acting career is definitely over unless the Korean public is very forgiving.

Basically, do not do drugs. It is harmful!

@ Stilldollxx (Wakeshima Kanon fan?)

The comparison is that both alcohol and tobacco are as addictive and harmful as many of the illegal drugs people use. Tobacco and Alcohol use can result in death and have acctually been attributed in to over 20% of deaths in the USA. Think Liver failure, Cancer of various varieties (though most often lung cancer is associated here). Tuberculosis, Emphysema, traffic accidents caused by drunk driving....etc

All are used for basically the same purposes.
1.) achievement of a pleasant mood 2) avoidance of an unpleasant mood 3.) acceptance among peers 4.) celebration/ group celebration/ feeling of communal experience 5) insight and creativity.

Also stop and consider the fact that massive treatment and social programs exist due to both types of abuses. Alcoholics Anonymous, Mothers against Drunk Driving, AL-ANON and Alateen, Nicotine patches, gum, inhalers...massive campaigns to stop smoking like TheTRUTH.com and state and local stop smoking hotlines and programs

The main difference is truly is social acceptance. While we have deemed tobacco and alcohol to be risks we are willing to take, we have not come to the same conclusion for other narcotics.

I'm not trying to champion legalization here...as I don't really think it the forum, but I just wanted to show you the similarities.
