T.O.P of boy band Big Bang was given a two-year suspended sentence for smoking marijuana.
T.O.P. was accused of smoking liquid marijuana, a highly concentrated form of the drug, at his home in Seoul in October last year with a 21-year-old aspiring singer.
The rapper initially denied the charges, claiming he only smoked tobacco, but admitted them during his trial.
"The fact that the defendant admits smoking marijuana on all four occasions and the related evidence prove that he is guilty", the Seoul Central District Court said. But it added that it was "his first offense and that he admitted his crimes and has repented".
