From the timing and circumstances surrounding actor Jung Seok Won‘s drug arrest yesterday, changes are he is being used as a decoy to divert attention from other potentially more nefarious news stories. It’s old hat especially in South Korea, but it doesn’t negate what he did if it’s indeed true that he was busted for meth use. The alleged use of crystal meth was overseas in Australia and he was arrested upon arrival at Incheon airport and taken away from drug testing. If meth is still found in his blood stream then he will have violated the law regardless of not doing the drugs in South Korea.
The police were reported tipped off to his drug use in Australia so was waiting to arrest him when he arrived, and Jung Seok Won’s side has apologized and accepted responsibility, saying he was curious when offered meth at a club and tried it for the first time. Riiiiiight. Anyhoo, any celeb should just refrain from breaking the law, doesn’t matter if other stars are doing it, why put oneself in the position of being busted as a smoke screen. Jung Seok Won has finished the first police investigation and has been released due to having no priors and not seen as a flight risk.
