Korean news agency The Fact reported today (June 26) that a staff member of a large entertainment company tested positive for drug use, and that a top-level Hallyu star is also being investigated on similar charges.

The staff member was arrested on June 22 at Incheon International Airport for suspected cocaine use and subsequently tested positive for drug use. According to The Fact, the suspect has named a celebrity from the same agency as someone who uses cocaine with him.

While there have been no names revealed, they went on to say that the star’s name was publicly recognised and that the substance abuse took place on numerous occasions, in secret locations out of the public’s view.

Following the report, netizens have named celebrities that were seen at Incheon International Airport on that day, which include BIGBANG, Super Junior, T-ARA and EXO. Others have also pointed out that while those stars were pictured at the airport, staff members do not always travel with the artistes.
