It was belatedly known that a famous girl group member A was fined for taking propofol earlier this year.
On the 25th, Suwon District Court’s Criminal Affairs Department 3 (chief judge Kim Soo-il) held an appeal hearing for plastic surgeon B, who was indicted on charges of violating the Pharmaceutical Law, drug management law, and medical law.
B was indicted on charges of selling etomidates to famous girl group member A and others. Ethomidates are not designated as injectives or drugs that work similar to propofol. B is also accused of administering propofol to four people, including A, and not recording the details of the treatment in the medical records.
A stated that he did not continue together because ethomidate was not designated as a drug, and that he “thought it was for therapeutic purposes” on charges of receiving propofol four times from B. There was not enough evidence and was not punished.
Separately, however, A was summarily indicted with a fine of 1 million won for taking propofol between July and August 2019, and his sentence was confirmed earlier this year.
