Follow Up on Bom's Drug Scandal

This might be old new to everyone, but I don't really keep up with scandals so I never saw what happened to Bom.

Recap of the scandal: Bom was found with drugs that were illegal in Korea, resulting in huuuuuge outcry from fans, the press, and the general Korean public. She said they were for depression, but without proof no one believed her.

Here's what was uncovered:

Bom was actually living in the US for a long time before she debuted, where she was an avid soccer player.
Netizens found proof of this via articles written about her (her English name was Jenny Park) attending the school that she's pretty well known for attending. The articles proved she was on the soccer team all throughout high school.
It was then discovered that while Bom was on the team (possibly on the field with her teammate...) a close friend and teammate of hers collapsed on the field and died of an aneurysm.

This matches the story released by YG exactly.

YG further explains that Bom was, understandably, traumatized by witnessing the sudden death of her friend that she was prescribed anti-depressants and anti-anxiety drugs. Some ingredients in these pills are LEGAL in the US but ILLEGAL in Korea.
When she received a package of these pills from a relative in America, she didn't even consider that a pill she's been taking her whole life could possibly be illegal.

I personally didn't know that Bom played soccer and I certainly didn't know about the tragedy of her friend.

I hope that all of this clears over and Bom (and all of us) can move on.

Bom has had such a hard life. =(
SHE NEEDS A HUG, mostly if I was kinda shocked but angered not at bom but this one girl from a girl group made a Diss track about her and park didn't have anything to do with it at the time during the scandal since it was the same year she lost her aunt
This scandal happened during her time on Roommates that's why she kind of slowly disappeared from the show without real acknowledgement. Netizens* and antifans really bashed her about and she left the show. can you image needing your anxiety and depression medication, not being able to get it cuz it's "illegal" being judged on TV and viciously talked about and scrutinized all at the same time. I can see Bom not ever coming back because of all the pressure and feeling so helpless. I fell in love with her watching Roommates, that's where I got to know her and this whole situation is so not fair to her.
I knew about soccer because I watched Roommates for a while. But thanks for updating us on the other stuff. It's crazy what we accept as true and have no idea about.
This makes so much more sense

Idols and Depression
Due to the harsh nature of the kpop industry, it is not uncommon for kpop idols to develop depression. Here are a few Idols who have suffered from depression but have overcome it Media Monsters Squad CEO: @amobts Media Monsters Team: @Qilin94 @KokoroNoTakara @Helixx @Thekreviewer @nimm14 Monster Bloggers: @PrettieeEmm @SimplyAwkward @BBxGD @VeronicaArtino @CynthiaForeman Executive Media Team @stevieq @SarahVanDorn None of these images or videos belong to Media Monsters Writer @PrettieeEmm, Monster Blogger HEECHUL -SUJU After Hankyung’s leave, member Heechul became depressed especially. He lived in the same dorm as Hankyung and had a special relationship with him. He said, “I was in a big chaos. It was difficult for me to laugh on TV and dance on stage.” Afterwards, he did not go on stage including year-end award shows. For 3 months, he lived in seclusion, locking his door. His only friends were two cats. Heechul revealed, “I had some lingering emotions. Since I didn't meet any people, depression got worse. I had lived with Hankyung, drank together and was really close. It was mentally difficult.” His mind became comfortable after thinking, “when me and Hankyung do well we can meet each other.” JOKWON -2AM The happy virus of K-Pop, Jo Kwon! He always brings laughter and joy to those around him. “I was fearful because I didn’t know when I would be cut. I even suffered from depression during those eight years of training" But he pushed through it and was able to rise above it. His determination and willpower is simply astounding and admirable. TAEYEON -SNSD This issue came up around the I Got a Boy era when Taeyeon outwardly admitted her depression “After my schedule is finish, I return home and feel lonely and empty inside. I don’t know what to do about it,” she remarked. KISEOP -U-KISS "Before coming into U-KISS, I found my dream and had planned on following it. But wherever I went, the companies wouldn’t pick me and I always failed. I eventually gave up and went into 2 months of harsh Depression. I thought a lot about the possibility of suicide" "My mom…my mom was thinking of me and she cried herself to sleep. I didn’t see my mom cry often. After watching her cry, I realized what I was doing…I was thinking about suicide and didn’t even go out to meet friends." "But after seeing my mom cry and try to make me feel better, I got back up. After that, I told myself I would work harder and never give up" PARK BOM - 2NE1 When Park Bom was growing up in the United States, she was an avid soccer player and dreamed of being a soccer star. One of her best friends at the time died while playing soccer with her, shocking and depressing her. She received psychiatric care for the trauma she experienced and was prescribed amphetamine drugs. TABLO -EPIK HIGH Epik High’s Tablo confessed about his state of depression which sparked a lot of attention. Tablo, who has suffered from depression at a very young age, confessed, “Depression is integrated into my life.” “I don’t know if I ever overcame it… I’m okay though, I’m not crazy.” Tablo shared his thoughts on the topic of depression, “I think everyone in the modern world is depressed in some way.” May also add his snaps make you feel happy to be alive he's such an inspiration and I look forward to them everyday Media Monsters Taglist Come join us A: @AaliyahNewbell @AshleiRyals B: @BTSxEXO @Bangtanss C: @CandyApple22 D: @deeeDUH E: @EvilGenius @EmilyGardner F: @FalseLove @Foxxyjinxx J: @JessyRay19 @jungkooknovieka @JohnEvans @JasmineGregory K: @kouvarisb @KassiIverson @kimchikpop @KwonOfAKind L: @LadyL @Leolaring M: @Mightymuffin @merryjayne13 @mbg3t @mycreativename @MelissaGarza @mrsax2018 @MorganAlys N:@nimm14 @normabm7 P: @PierceHorizon R:@requiem101 S: @simpsonsamantha V: @Vay754 @VIPFreak2NE1 Z: @ZakariahForbes @ZoilaObregon DO NOT COPY TAGLIST If you want to be removed please message us and we will untag you!
