Rapper Iron is caught in another suspected case of marijuana usage and has been prosecuted without detention.
The Seoul Central Prosecutors’ Office reports, “Rappers Iron and former Topp Dogg member Kidoh are under suspicions of smoking marijuana, and have been prosecuted without detention.”
Along with the rappers, other suspects include a singer, an aspiring songwriter, and a performance planner, resulting in a total of five cases that have been turned over to court.
According to the police, since December 2014 to March 2015, Iron and another aspiring songwriter utilized a beer can and a cigarette pipe to smoke the drug. The two proceeded to take turns inhaling the contents and proceeded to do this three times. It has been revealed that they did not hide the areas where they smoked, even smoking in dorms, houses, offices, and dorm bathrooms.
Iron is known for appearing on Mnet’s “Show Me the Money 3” and being the final runner-up. After the rapper was previously charged with smoking marijuana in April, he released a single “SYSTEM,” which contains degrading lyrics about BIGBANG’s T.O.P, G-Dragon, WINNER’s Song Mino, and their agency YG Entertainment.
Note: Smoking marijuana is illegal in Korea and a punishable crime.
