BIGBANG's T.O.P. Could Face 5 Years In Prison? Government Conspiracy Involved In Rapper's Drug Charges?

As more details about the investigation on BIGBANG T.O.P's drug investigation surfaces, netizens believe that a government conspiracy may be involved in the recent developments. Many users on social media are expecting that T.O.P may not get out of the drug charges as quickly as previous YG artists because of this.

According to a report by All K-pop, some netizens have started bringing out similar drug scandals involving BIGBANG leader G-Dragon and former 2NE1 member Park Bom several years back. It can be recalled that G-Dragon was also investigated for marijuana use in 2011 but eventually received a suspension of the indictment. Unlike T.O.P, however, G-Dragon denied using the drug at all. In 2014, former 2NE1 member Park Bom was found to have tried to smuggle in amphetamines from the US back in 2010 but the case was suspended by prosecutors. At the time, YG Boss Yang Hyun Suk explained in a lengthy social media post that Park Bom was receiving the drugs to treat a medical condition and that they were prescribed by her doctors.
