BIGBANG International Fan Blog
Big Bang’s G-Dragon received a suspension of indictment recently for smoking marijuana. As ripples of the events are shocking the fans, some are starting to wonder why out of all the members in Big Bang, only G-Dragon was investigated for the charges.
According to the prosecution, G-Dragon smoked marijuana while in Japan in mid-May. YG Entertainment, G-Dragon’s management company, also officially issued a statement of admission and apology, “While on tour in Japan in May, they were out drinking with the event coordinators in Japan and when G-Dragon went to the restroom, someone who appeared to be a fan gave him what he thought was a cigarette. He inhaled a couple of times but felt different from a cigarette so he remembers throwing it out in the toilette”. It is believed that G-Dragon’s contact with marijuana occurred during Big Bang’s tour in Japan from May 10th through the 19th in Osaka, Chiba, and Nagoya.
Some are starting to wonder then why G-Dragon was singled out. If Big Bang was on tour together during that time, why was G-Dragon the only one subjected to the urine and hair testing for drugs? The prosecutor’s office simply stated, “There was only information regarding G-Dragon. There was no mention of other members, therefore only G-Dragon was investigated”.
The fans wonder yet, because once drug-related stories break out they tend to continue with others given past history. Entertainment industry insiders are worried that G-Dragon’s investigation will be followed by others in a string. The prosecutor’s office verified, “There are no other active investigations ongoing at this time other than G-Dragon”. For now.
