According to the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency, the investigation was launched after the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety, which monitors the distribution of psychotropic drugs, made a request to investigate why Yoo Ah In got propofol prescribed too often. They claim that Yoo Ah In has been habitually administering propofol while receiving treatments at various hospitals.

Yoo Ah In’s agency said, “The actor doesn’t take the drug except when necessary, such as for regular medical checkups and surgical procedures”, adding “ We are cooperating with all the investigations and will actively explain the problematic parts”, leaving room for further explanation. Attention is focused on the result of the investigation to see if this allegation turns out to be a misunderstanding or a real drug crime.
