No one really had any definitive proof that the YG Family was neck deep in it of course. Psy's bust was way back when in 2001, and GD didn't really mean to smoke the weed that was in the cigarette that the dirty Japanese ape forced him to take in the bathroom. Until now.
2NE1's very own Park Bom was caught trying to smuggle amphetamines into the totally healthy, drug-free nation of South Korea.
|SHE IS THE ONE WHO KNOCKED|
Yep. You read that correctly. Park Bom was hopped up on speed, ice, shabu, whizz, fettle, throttle, meth, crack, coke, yayo, blow, cocaine, e, ecstasy, MDMA, Ritalin, Adderol, and/or all sorts of amphetamines, and tried to MAIL HERSELF 80 PILLS OF THAT SHIT.
Intelligence of the act aside, Park Bom has been ousted as either one of two things:
(1) Park Bom is the true leader of the YG Family drug cartel. We all thought it was GDruggin, but that guy is small time pussy shit. He just pushes half ounces of shit weed he probably grows himself on his patio, but Park Bom is the real deal. She's pushing the real shit, the hard shit that everyone wants a piece of but is too afraid to get their hands dirty for.
(2) Park Bom is just a poor mule, caught in a bad position by the popo because someone probably ratted her out. I blame JYP, they're pretty jealous of the other big entertainment groups these days. At any rate, the true mastermind behind the YG Family drug cartel is still unknown.
The fan outcry has been extremely delicious, with both sides ("WOW PARK BOM IS A FUCKIN' DRUGGIE, BURN THE WITCH" and "UNNIE DIDN'T MEAN IT") full of hilarity. Most of Park Bom's defenders are saying how she has a prescription for them and she was totally in need of it, so case closed.
Look, I don't mean to pass definitive legal judgment on this whole deal (as I'm not qualified, let alone give a shit), but you gotta admit... MAILING YOURSELF SHIT THAT IS ILLEGAL IN YOUR COUNTRY BY FEDEX? Not exactly the smartest idea. When I first saw the headlines, I thought she was getting pills from her fangirls sewn into the stuffed animal goods or hiding that shit under her boobs or something. But MAIL? Come on man.
|Not exactly her finest hour.|
Emphasis mine. How many people know of what kind of properties a medication has? ALL THE RESPONSIBLE ONES? In America at least, doctors are expected to know the side effects and properties of a drug so they can SAFELY prescribe something to the patient based on their personal medication history, health concerns, and other important factors. I can't imagine a world where any self-respecting doctor would just let her take drugs "prescribed to her by a famous university hospital in the U.S." without letting her know what it does or what to expect in terms of side-effects or WHAT THE FUCK SHE'S ACTUALLY TAKING. Of course, you can take the letter however you like, but I just was extremely irritated by that bullshit line. Especially as a pre-health student.It's said [the drug] has narcotic properties, did they know of this?In common sense, what mother and grandmother would go get their daughter and grandmother narcotic?Especially in a world like today when most medications need prescriptions, how many people know of what kind of properties a medication has?
However, I think the biggest thing to keep in mind is how this whole thing was revealed to have gone down in 2010. Yes, almost 4 years ago (I intentionally left that part out in the quote at the top because I wanted to join in on all the sensationalism going on at the moment, kappa), but is suddenly being brought up now.
According to the press (Yes, I know it's Allkpop but they're the only ones with some more context into the whole thing. Surprising to me too.)/authorities, the whole thing was caught and pardoned back in 2010 without a trace.
Sounds pretty shady to me. YG probably pulled some strings, paid some people, and scared some others into making this go away at the time. That part shouldn't really surprise anyone, but there are those who are saying that (as is alarmingly common for "major scandals" in the damn country) Park Bom's drug thing is being used to mask outcry for a different governmental scandal altogether. With the track record of previous scandals and suspicious timing, I'm fairly inclined to believe the allegations of government media manipulation. People are starting to realize it, but all the idiotic fangirls are drowning a lot of that conversation. Sigh.
But enough about that. With the not-so-obvious reveal of the YG Family drug cartel, this makes the Big 3 entertainment companies embroiled in some pretty funny scandals. If YG's been busted for drug and SM/JYP/CCM have been busted for embezzlement, who's next? Will Cube be busted for prostitution? Will Loen be caught in a gambling circuit? Will we ever find out how deep the YG Family drug cartel's rabbit hole goes??
