No Cut News Reports Building Owned By Daesung Was Examined And Cleared Of Drug Activity Suspicions Earlier This Year
On July 28, No Cut News cited officials from the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency and Gangnam Police Station in Seoul and reported, “Internal investigations were conducted earlier this year at Daesung’s building in the neighborhood of Nonhyeon of the Gangnam District due to a tip that customers were taking drugs that were brought in from overseas.”
A source from the police confirmed, “It’s true that we obtained a related tip at the time and examined the facts. We couldn’t find anything suspicious, so we ended [the investigation] without [finding] anything out of the ordinary.”
Daesung purchased a building in Gangnam in 2017 for 31 billion won (approximately $26.3 million). Contrary to what was reported on the official building register, it was confirmed that entertainment businesses were operating illegally on five floors. Daesung, who joined the military last March, stated that he was not aware of the fact. However, he may have to take responsibility as the Building Act obliges him to maintain his building according to its purpose as written in the register.
