G-Dragon Preliminary Drug Test Comes Back Negative; Shares Statements Following Voluntary Attendance
G-Dragon has personally spoken to the media following his first round of questioning today.
Back on October 25, it was reported that G-Dragon had been booked by the Incheon Metropolitan Police Agency on drug-related charges. Just two days later, G-Dragon personally released a statement through his legal representative to firmly deny the allegations.
Later on October 30, his lawyer shared an update stating that G-Dragon had submitted a statement of intent for voluntary attendance to the Incheon Metropolitan Police Agency’s Narcotics Unit, which was later scheduled for November 6.
Today on November 6, G-Dragon personally visited the Incheon Metropolitan Police Agency’s Narcotics Unit of the Regional Investigation Department for questioning at 1:23 p.m. KST. After completing a four-hour investigation, he spoke to the media.
On this day, the police conducted an initial reagent test on G-Dragon, along with the collection of urine and hair samples for comprehensive analysis by the National Forensic Service. In response to inquiries about the results of the preliminary reagent test, G-Dragon stated, “The results came back negative. I’ve also requested an urgent thorough examination.” He added, “I hope the investigative agency can release the accurate results as soon as possible.”
Regarding whether he had submitted his mobile phone, he replied, “I haven’t, but if it is needed in the future and is on the list of items to be submitted, I have informed [the police] that I am willing to submit it.” When asked if he plans to cooperate with any additional summons for questioning, he responded, “If they call me, I will comply.”
Subsequently, when asked if the police had presented any evidence, G-Dragon replied, “There was none. I don’t believe there would be any.” On whether he thought today’s investigation was unreasonable, he said, “I don’t think it’s unreasonable. The police are not personally after me; they are just doing their job based on someone’s statement. I also think that I am here for the investigation because it’s part of my job to deny or rather I’d say, to prove that the allegations are unfounded. So I wouldn’t say it’s unreasonable but in any case, I hope for a fair resolution, and I hope that unverified claims will not be insisted upon.”
Regarding the details of the investigation, G-Dragon responded, “This investigation in itself, both the police and I are not exactly sure of the circumstances. It’s ultimately the police’s decision whether my statements will help or not in their investigation.”
He concluded by stating, “I myself still don’t know about the specifics, but what I wish for is that the investigative agency promptly releases the results of the detailed examination as quickly as possible.” In a message to his fans, he conveyed, “I hope you’re not too worried. I hope you believe in me and await [the results].”
