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).

joo ji hoon oppa , i don't understand what is the matter with you to be using drugs. GOSH didn't anyone ever tell you drugs issn't something that's cool or make you feel better from using it. It's just makes you rein your reputation and your a celebrities talent , we stupid fans are like their to support you and you do these kind of shit , using drugs.
DRUGS IS LIKE BAD BAD FOR YOU, YOU NEVER KNOW YOU COULD BE DRUGS ADDICTD , WHO WILL STOP YOU THEN WHEN YOU TURN INTO ONE. i don't want to say all offf these thing is just that i do support you, but you just turn us down on you. NO i do not want you to lose your career, just want you to change into a better person, your 27 that is pretty old , should be having the chance to choose the prefect women and marrry her why don't you not going around using DRUGS.
HATING ON CELEBRITIES WITH DRUGS USE.

P.S PLEASE CHANGE JOO JI HOON OPPA , NO OTHER CELERATIES USING DRUGS PLEASE PLEASE DON'T USE IT, NOT JUST CELEBRITIES , EVERYBODY ELSE THAT USE THEM PLEASE DON'T FOR YOUR PARENTS AND THE PEOPLE THAT LOVE YOU.

im so Sad right now... Joo Ji Hon is one of my fav. ACTOR .. i just know him in goong and i was a little bit shock with his status right now...
Hope that he would be able to fix the mess AND make an apology to the public afterwards..
Its a little bit shameful ... for him to do that his career right now is so risky..
WHEEEW.. =( .. I really felt sorry for him guys...
i dont want to judge people..that's why i dont judge him...
but sometimes that's the most recent act people could do.... and its not their fault either....
so JOO JI HOOn... Just fight for your rights ok???
I know your country is so strict in this matter.... but i still believe in you... "people...do always have a second chance..."
So Aza~AZa` Fighting.!!!!.....Prince Shin of korea..

i think..its starting to fire in here...
would evrybody just calm down!!!!,,,

y are people here so judgemental???
its not fair that u already judge someone who committed some drugs...
he's also a human who have his reasons ..why he had done such thing...
its no use to get rid of it...the action is already been done..
we have to anticipate his future...actions....
just be optimistic in some ways...

we dont what he have gone this past few years...
again he have his reasons and that's what we..fans have to figure out....
so be it....
never be judge..someone..quickly...

give the guy another chance..to solve this.....
that's the possible way to be fair...

JJh, you are a very talented young man with charisma. Using drugs to offset the pressure that you've encountered is not a wise choice. There are other means to let go frustrations! In difficult times like this, it is important to pull yourself together and prepare for a better future. As an overseas fan of yours, I sincerely hope to see you again in the Korean entertainment business.

Your acts in various dramas/movie demonstrated that you have the gifted-talent as an actor and what moved me was your photo session taken with a lovely baby. Your interactions with him revealed that tender, love and care as well as patience was exercised genuinely during the shooting/the set. I see you more as a compassionate person rather than a model or actor.

Life isn't fair. You've got the look, the talent, the physique, the charisma and the professionalism that the movie industry asked for, while other actors/models may not carry all these. Don't throw them all away. Show it to yourself and the others that you can utilize these elements positively. Shape up and polish yourself. Look forward to seeing you again on screen. Your former actions brought along a big blow to your image to the public. However, it is always sincerity that counts. Give them the best shot and show them you are completely off the hook with the wrongful past.. Convince them by showing determination to do good. Hopefully, the producers/movie- directors or film-makers are willing to provide you with a chance to come back for the second time.

Brillant guy like you should know what path to take in life. Do spend some time to dig up the other good elements within yourself. Say, even if ,acting can no longer be your career in the future, I believe that you can be equally successful in other fields. Have faith in yourself.

May you find happiness, love, joy and luck in your life. You are one lucky soul on earth because a lot of your fans still support you!

P.S.: Be persistent and resist all temptations. With hard work and dedications, you can make it.

BEST OF LUCK!!!
