Will Yoo Ah In be able to continue his career after his drug scandal? The media react
Actor Yoo Ah In was recently confirmed to have been on various drugs for a number of years. He was suspected in early February 2023 after returning from a trip to the United States.
Results showed he had taken propofol more than 73 times in 2021, while tests showed more recent use of marijuana and another undisclosed third drug.
South Korea is very strict when it comes to drugs and the actor’s public image has suffered a lot.
Therefore, many are wondering whether the actor can return after such a scandal.
Compared to previous drug incidents involving other actors, Yoo Ah In’s case has become exceptionally notable due to the high number and type of drug use.
In addition, further investigation revealed that in each case he had been administered up to around 60ml of propofol, bringing his total consumption in 2021 to almost 4,400ml, while the medically recommended amount is around 5 to 10ml per administration.
The media and internet users were shocked by the actor’s high consumption.
It would be the first public incident in which an actor used three different drugs, in what netizens dubbed the “triple crown.”
According to the media, it seems almost impossible that Yoo Ah In could return to the film industry.
Due to the scandal, planned projects like The Match and the Netflix original series Goodbye Earth have been hit. In addition, the upcoming filming of “Hellbound” Season 2 has been put on hold.
Internet users and industry insiders are speculating about this “Even if he’s making a comeback”he will be “difficult for one of the top three TV stations (in Korea) to broadcast its content”.
