Questions regarding Park Bom
's smuggling of illegal drugs
into South Korea continue to be raised as new details begin to surface.
In an exclusive report from Segye Ilbo
, the news organization that originally broke the story, it was revealed that Park Bom had hidden the amphetamine pills in a box filled with jelly and snacks, raising questions about Park Bom's awareness of the drug's illegal status.
According to the report, customs officials found a small box label "jelly". Upon inspection, the illegal drugs were found inside. Law enforcement officials were sent to track the package's delivery, leading them to Park Bom's grandmother's houses on October 18, 2010.
By the time officials arrived that night, the package had already been sent to Park Bom's mother. When questioned about the package, the grandmother told officials that it contained jelly-shaped snacks used by her daughter for dieting purposes.
When investigators went to Park Bom's mother's house, the package had already been given to Park Bom. Officials then went to Park Bom's dorm where they were able to find the illegal drugs. Prosecutors then registered a case against her on October 19, 2010.
The way the amphetamine drugs were delivered to Park Bom raises questions about her awareness of its illegal status in South Korea. According to YG Entertainment CEO Yang Hyun Suk
, Park Bom didn't realize the drugs were illegal. If this is true, then why did she have them hidden is the issue in question.
The new revelations have further vilified Korean netizens who already believe Park Bom has received special treatment because of her celebrity status.
