Actor Yoo Ah In Tests Positive For Abuse Of The Drug Propofol
Actor Yoo Ah In has tested positive for propofol. Previously, on February 8, 2023, it was reported that he was under investigations for the habitual use of the drug.
He was stopped at the airport on February 5, 2023, when he returned from an overseas trip. At that time, he tested negative on the spot for propofol. But after deeper investigations in the national forensics lab, a test on his hair strands showed a positive test result. This was likely because propofol takes about three to four days to be excreted from the body, hence the inaccuracy of a urine test. On the other hand, even if your hair only grows out a small centimeter during the period of consumption, the drug will easily leave traces in your hair.
As of February 24, the investigations concluded that he tested positive for the drug. The police is still investigating the details on his administration of the drug. They have confiscated his handphone to investigate when and where, as well as the frequency, of his administration. Yoo Ah In’s representative stated briefly to the media that all statements will be made officially through a lawyer.
It shocked fans when previously, on February 10, news outlet Hankook Ilbo reported that actor Yoo Ah In, who is currently being investigated for the illegal misuse of Propofol, tested positive for marijuana while being tested for Propofol.
