Will Nam Tae-hyun & Seo Min-jae Be Imprisoned For Drug Use? Final Sentence To Be Announced Today

On January 18th, the Seoul Southern District Court will proceed with the sentencing hearing for Nam Tae-hyun and Seo Min-jae on charges of administering methamphetamine.

Earlier, the prosecution demanded imprisonments of 1 year and 6 months for Seo Min-jae and 2 years for Nam Tae-hyun, respectively. They also requested the court to fine Nam Tae-hyun 500,000 won and Seo Min-jae 450,000 won.

The prosecution made such requests with the reason that the crimes of people who are recognized by the public can have a big impact on society and the two actually denied their crime in the initial investigation. They also pointed out that Nam Tae-hyun conspired to commit the crime despite having received a suspended sentence for smoking marijuana last year.  

During the last trial, Nam Tae-hyun said, “I’ve been spending time in a drug rehabilitation facility to look back on wrongdoings and take better care of myself. No one told me to live like that. It was all my choice”, adding “I’m trying to look back on myself to live like a human being. As a person who used to take drugs, I will take the lead in raising the awareness of others, including young people, about drugs so that they would not make the wrong choices as I did.”

Seo Min-jae also said, “I will not be able to repay all the debts to society, but I’ll try my best to become a more sincere person, take responsibility for my mistakes and reflect on myself”.

The two appeared on KBS 1TV’s “In Depth 60 Minutes” and shared their whereabouts while overcoming drug addiction. Nam Tae-hyun said, “The first one or two months were very difficult, but after three months, I became more relaxed. Now that it’s already over six months, I don’t think about drugs anymore”.

Seo Min-jae confessed, “I lost everything I had because of drugs. I hope people don’t take drugs”.

Meanwhile, Nam Tae-hyun and Seo Min-jae are accused of purchasing and administering methamphetamine at their residence in Yongsan-gu, Seoul in August last year.
