In 2020, it was reported that the “popular girl group member” was fined for illegally using propofol and now revealed now that it is “Brown Eyed Girls member Ga In”!
It become evident when her Agency Mystic Story issued a formal apology!
Mystic Story, Ga In’s agency, stated,
It is true that last year, Ga In was fined 1 million won (~ $884 USD) after being indicted on charges of illegal Propofol use. We deeply apologize for the fact that both Ga In and the agency did not apologize for this mistake earlier and caused more concern with the sudden news, despite recognizing it as a socially incorrect action.
The accumulation of Ga In’s both severe and less severe injuries during her long career of promoting as a singer has caused her lasting pain, depression, and severe sleep disorders. Throughout all this, she ended up recklessly making a bad decision. Although the individual pains suffered by the artist increased over the past years due to certain circumstances that we cannot speak of, neither the artist nor the agency were able to find an effective solution to get out of the worsening situation. As an agency, we deeply apologize for our lack of responsibility.
From now on, Ga In and Mystic Story will do our best to stand in front of the artist’s fans and the public in a more mature manner. Once again, we sincerely apologize for causing concern.

“As you all may know, I’m the girlfriend of a previous junkie (Of course, as far as I know, he has received all appropriate punishment and now lives diligently). But even if I’m Joo Ji Hoon’s girlfriend, [Park Jung Wook shouldn’t have done this]. His friend Park Jung Wook offered me marijuana. Yes, I almost gave in, since I wasn’t in the right mental state. But I’ve been clean all my life, and I won’t do marijuana until it becomes legal. [I don’t need marijuana], I’m already injecting legal morphine. If you’re butthurt, smoke [marijuana] and go to jail, or be really ill and take morphine. You’re a dead man if you recommend me to do marijuana.”
