Famous Male Singer to Release Entire Album Rated 19+ After Drug Controversy

A famous male singer who was sentenced to probation for drug use has announced the release of an entire 19+ album.

On July 3, famous male singer Wheesung revealed on his SNS, “The REALSLOW 1st album I am currently preparing will be entirely rated 19+”.

He added, “It is currently about 40% complete and the release is aimed for this winter. Since the content level is high, I kindly ask listeners who are usually sensitive to provocative media to not expect too much.”

He explained, “Since my debut, I have occasionally released such R&B numbers, so it’s not an unusual path for me, but I wanted to give a heads-up in advance.”


In September 2019, Wheesung was indicted for purchasing and habitually administering the banned drug propofol 12 times over three months. He was sentenced to one year in prison with two years of probation and fined 60.5 million won (approx 43,500 USD). He was also ordered to complete 40 hours of community service and 40 hours of drug treatment classes. Although he suspended his official activities, he began to make a comeback with a 20th-anniversary concert last year.

He also faced controversy for revealing that he got his pet dog from a pet shop. In May, Wheesung stated, “In fact, I got him from a pet shop. Many people kept asking why I didn’t adopt a rescue dog. I wasn’t very familiar with the adoption process, and it wasn’t until people kept questioning me that I realized the perception (towards pet shops) was like this (negative).”
