This time, Ilhoon seemed to have accept the sentence and expressed that he was ashamed. The court announced the reason his sentence is lowered is that he didn’t commit any selling and disitributing marijuana and only bought for himself to use. Aside from that, Ilhoon has stopped using marijuana, joining a mental treatment session and rehab class online from 2019 Jan.
