Korean singer BoA has been investigated by the prosecutors for violating import drug regulations.
On December 16, BoA was questioned by prosecutors for violating import drug regulations due to careless customs clearance by an employee at SM Entertainment’s overseas branch. The employee had sent shipped sleeping pills from Japan to Korea, not following the set clearance procedures. This resulted in BoA and the employee being questioned by prosecutors. Apparently, neither BoA nor the employee were aware of formal import procedures.
SM Entertainment stated, “BoA recently took a prescribed sleeping pills after receiving a doctor’s opinion that she needed sufficient sleep due to a decrease in growth hormones – but the side effects were severe. The drugs prescribed for sleep disorders had no issues during Japan’s activities, an employee of our overseas branch received the drugs through standard procedures after being checked at a local hospital, but he was not aware even the drugs prescribed overseas could cause a problem in Korea. We plan to strengthen multi-faceted education for all employees to prevent this from happening again in the future. We’re sorry to have troubled you.”
BoA made her debut at the tender age of 14, and is dubbed the “Star of Asia” by the Korean media for contributing to popularize hallyu and the Korean pop culture. She recently released an album titled “Better” which commemorated her 20th anniversary since debut.
