It is known that in 2019, Park left the celebrities world by his 10-month prison sentence, along with a 2-year suspended sentence, 1.4 million won of fine, protective supervision, compulsory detoxification.

Park Yoo-chun volunteered to retire from the entertainment industry and denied the allegations when he was first accused of violating the Drug Control Act with his ex-lover.

Of course, every move was tagged with controversy.

“There are a lot of celebrities who have been involved in drug cases and succeeded in returning, but Park Yoo Chun has lost too much public confidence due to his inconsistent attitude as well as drug usage charges,” an industry source stated.
