Singer Ga-in: From Youngest Member of Brown Eyed Girls into Sexy Soloist

Controversy

Ga-In and her boyfriend’s breakup happened after the rumor of her boyfriend offered her marijuana. Ga-In confessed on her Instagram account multiple times about this incident. She admitted that she did not take any of marijuana, which was offered by a friend of Joo Ji Hoon, her ex-boyfriend.

On her Instagram account, she uploaded the following caption:

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 butt-hurt, 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.”

She also uploaded screenshot about the evidence, which is translated below,

Park Jung Wook (henceforth ‘P’): What did I do to make you do this to me? Let’s talk.

Ga In (henceforth ‘G’): Weed

P: I said I didn’t.

G: You offered it to me.

P: I told you I was only trying to find a way to make you feel better.

G: You’re backing out.

P: I’m not backing out. It’s the truth.

G: You wanted to make me feel better so you offered me weed? And you’re saying that’s all a joke?

P: I was trying any sort of method to make you feel better.

“I don’t need to shoot ads. I don’t care about my image. I have enough money for me to use and eat until I die. I’m going to voluntarily take a drug test every three months.”

Later on, Ga-In talked about her mental treatment, but she was fully aware about that and not taking advantage by using marijuana. She made the brave statement, “Yes, I’m a mental patient undergoing treatment, and I’m not ashamed of that. I’m going to be cured. I will tell you one by one why I’ve gone crazy, even if it gets me in jail and even if it gets me killed.” Cool Ga-In!

After that, she deleted it all the posts she has been made about this controversy on her Instagram.
