Park Bom is referring to her drug scandal that broke in 2014 that greatly impacted her career.

In 2010, Park Bom was charged for allegedly trying to smuggle in amphetamine tablets from the States.

Amphetamine is legal in the United States, but it is considered an illegal drug in Korea.

Reports sited that she hid the pills as jelly and mailed the package to her grandma.

Yang Hyun Suk had revealed in a long letter that Park Bom was regularly prescribed the medicine from a hospital in the States, for a trauma that happened when she was young.

However, she was unable to make time in her busy schedule to travel for her treatments, so her grandma and mom received the prescribed pills for safe keeping.

She was cleared of the smuggling charge when she provided medical proof that showed her long history with the prescription meds and her ongoing treatment from the States.

Even so, many netizens and news reports continued to speculate YG’s stance as a lie used to cover up her alleged drug problem.
