Big Bang group member T.O.P. and his marijuana case is not yet closed as Han Seo Hee once again came forward to do a second interview with K STAR regarding her involvement.
During the email interview with a K STAR reporter on Thursday, August 24, Han Seo Hee spoke about the case between her and T.O.P.
“I am not denying anything and am reflecting. I am only trying to correct a point that was wrong,” reported Soompi.
Han Seo Hee further goes on to explain regarding her testimony during the investigation.
“It’s not true at all that I suddenly changed my testimony to get sympathy and for favorable handling [of my case]. I have consistently stated the same information during the police investigation and the prosecution’s investigation.”
Han Seo Hee then explains about meeting T.O.P, which she knew regarding his drug case and that he was the one who first offered marijuana, taking out a e-cigarette from his pocket. She then goes on about the first time they smoked marijuana together, which according to her statement, T.O.P. was “depressed” and “if she had something good he wanted to do it together.”
Han Seo Hee concluded the interview by saying, “He claimed something different from the truth and acted in a way that seemed like he was trying to shift the responsibility.”
This case is still ongoing, which Last June of 2016, Seoul Central District Court sentenced Han Seo Hee to three years in prison, four years of probation, 120 hours of drug treatment and a fine of 870,000 won ($770) for using marijuana. Han Seo Hee has appealed the verdict, and her trial is scheduled for September 20.
Meanwhile, T.O.P also got suspended when the court found the Big Bang member guilty as he smoked marijuana four times. T.O.P was sentenced to 10 months in jail and a fine of 12,000 won ($10).
After the verdict, T.O.P regretted what he did and apologized to his global fans, saying, “I’m truly sorry that I disappointed my fans and the public. I will do my best to make a fresh start and not to make such a mistake again with what I’ve learned from this lesson,” reported International Business Times, Singapore edition.
