Han Seo-hee, a 27-year-old singer trainee who was handed over to the third trial for drug use, was sentenced to prison in the first trial.

On the afternoon of the 23rd, Judge Koo Ja-gwang, the 8th independent criminal of the Seoul Eastern District Court, sentenced Han, who was charged with violating the Narcotics Control Act (Hyangjeong), to six months in prison and ordered him to complete a 40-hour drug addiction rehabilitation program.

The court explained the reason for the sentencing, saying, "Drug crimes harm public health and cause other crimes. The guilt is heavy in that it can have a serious adverse effect on society as a whole."

Han was indicted on charges of administering methamphetamine at an officetel in Jungnang-gu, Seoul last July. All 48 syringes found at the scene tested positive for methamphetamine. In 10 of them, Han's bloodstain reaction was confirmed.

This is the third time Han has been tried for drug use. He was handed over to trial for smoking marijuana in 2016 and was sentenced to three years in prison and four years of probation the following year.

In June 2020, during the probation period, he again took methamphetamine and was sent to trial without detention. The original sentence was affirmed by the Supreme Court. The third drug administration occurred while the second trial was ongoing.
