Hwang Ha Na Arrested For Charges Of Drug Usage + New Reports Accuse Her Of Sharing Hidden Camera Footage
Hwang Ha Na has been arrested following suspicions of using and distributing drugs.
On April 4, Hwang Ha Na was arrested by the Drug Investigation Unit of the Gyeonggi Southern Provincial Police Agency for charges of injecting psychoactive drugs last year. The police arrested Hwang Ha Na from the Bundang Seoul National University Hospital.
The Gyeonggi Southern Provincial Police Agency has been investigating Hwang Ha Na on suspicions of drug use since last year based on a testimony they secured from Hwang Ha Na’s acquaintance. During their investigation, the police requested a search and seize warrant and an arrest warrant for Hwang Ha Na, but both requests were dismissed by the Suwon District Prosecutor’s Office.
The case came to light due to a report by MBC on April 2, after which suspicions arose that Hwang Ha Na was not punished due to her chaebol connections as she is the only granddaughter of the founder of a large Korean conglomerate, Namyang Dairy Products.
Following the reports, the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency’s Intellectual Crime Investigation Team began an internal investigation to uncover alleged corruption within the force.
In addition, Hwang Ha Na is also accused of spreading hidden camera videos.
On April 3, news outlet CBS No Cut News reported that an online user shared on social media after receiving information about four different instances of Hwang Ha Na sharing illegally taken videos. The online user also revealed the messages exchanged between one of the whistleblowers and a person identified as Hwang Ha Na as proof.
According to the report, the whistleblower said, “[Hwang Ha Na] would randomly send a video of someone [I] don’t know like that sometimes. She would get excited all by herself if I reacted to it.” The whistleblower no longer has videos in possession but said that a woman who seemed like she was drugged was dancing naked in one of the videos.
The online user stated, “[Hwang Ha Na] threatened many people with sex videos, but I’m not sure where she got these from. Based on the tips I received, there are at least four victims.”
