Namyang Dairy Products Releases Official Statement On Drug Allegations Surrounding Hwang Ha Na
Namyang Dairy Products has released an official statement in response to reports surrounding Hwang Ha Na, the only granddaughter of their founder and ex-fiancée of Park Yoochun.
On April 1, reports claimed that Hwang Ha Na was under suspicion of using and distributing drugs, and allegations were made that she had been receiving favorable treatment in the investigative process due to her chaebol connections as the only granddaughter of the founder of Namyang Dairy Products (a large Korean conglomerate).
Namyang has now released an official statement distancing themselves from Hwang Ha Na. They stated, “Hwang Ha Na has no relation to the management of Namyang Dairy Products and nobody in her family holds a job related to our businesses or any stock in the company. The company also has no relation to the current allegations that there was favorable treatment given to Hwang Ha Na as a family member of our company’s founder.”
They went on to state, “Some media outlets have been reporting on this case by insinuating that Namyang Dairy Products was involved because Hwang Ha Na is the company’s late founder’s granddaughter. Because of this, many of our employees, distributors, dairy farmers, and their families are suffering damages,” and asked media outlets to distance Namyang Dairy Products from future reports.
The police are currently investigating Hwang Ha Na on the allegations.
