A popular and award-winning South Korean actor has tested positive for both cocaine and ketamine according to an exclusive report from Korean media outlet TV Chosun's “News 9” on Wednesday.
According to the report, the results came after Yoo Ah-in's hair sample was tested by the National Forensic Service and Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency's drug investigation unit.
Currently, there are four types of drugs that Yoo, 36, is suspected of taking – marijuana and propofol, followed by cocaine and ketamine.
It was on February 5 when the police seized and searched Yoo at Incheon International Airport following his return to Korea from the United States.
The Ministry of Food and Drug Safety requested an investigation and launched a compulsory investigation, claiming that there was a circumstance that Yoo had habitually administered propofol.
As a result of requesting a precise evaluation to the National Institute of Scientific Investigation, it is known that propofol and hemp components were detected in Yoo's hair.
However, it was confirmed that at the time, the National Forensic Service notified the police that two types of drugs, such as cocaine and ketamine, were also detected.
“The police obtained records of ketamine prescriptions during the search and seizure of the hospital and are confirming that Yoo habitually took the drug. The police will identify Yoo as a suspect as early as next week,” TV Chosun reported.
Known for his hit projects “Seoul Vibe” and “#Alive,” and dramas “Hellbound” and “Chicago Typewriter,” Yoo Ah-in has been recognized by award-giving bodies such as the Asian Film Awards, Fantasia International Film Festival's Cheval Noir award, two Blue Dragon Film Awards and two Baeksang Arts Awards.
