A timeline of the YG, B.I, T.O.P, Han Seo Hee drug scandal

As you may have noticed, the drug scandal with YG, YG Entertainment, B.I, T.O.P, Han Seo Hee, and others is quite the mess. As such, it’s understandable that details might get lost in the shuffle or mixed up. Given the track records of … uh, just about everybody involved, there’s reason to question all of them and I noticed some of that confusion going on in the comments on these stories recently.

So I decided to try and piece what I could of this together into some kind of relatively cohesive timeline just for reference sake going forward.

Not saying this is complete by any means, so if you have other dates or whatever, feel free to let me know so I can update it.


March 2016 – Stylist XIN arrested for drug use, police investigations into him lead them to suspect T.O.P, but police have no cause to test him.

April 2016 – B.I talks to Han Seo Hee about buying drugs.

May 3, 2016 – Han Seo Hee delivers drugs to B.I, at least according to what she tells police in their first two investigations.

June 2016Seunghoon of WINNER contacts Han Seo Hee saying that B.I failed the company drug test and asks to meet. A YGE rep reportedly meets her instead and tells her to not say anything about B.I.

August 22, 2016 – Han Seo Hee testifies to police that she delivered drugs to B.I. in May of 2016, as mentioned above.

August 23, 2016 – YG meets with Han Seo Hee and reportedly tells her to change her testimony.

August 30, 2016 – Han Seo Hee testifies to police that she did not deliver any drugs to B.I.

October 8, 2016 – T.O.P contacts Han Seo Hee for the first time.

October 9-12, 2016 – T.O.P uses drugs with Han Seo Hee three times during this period.

November 2016 – YG reportedly tells Han Seo Hee to head to America.

December 7, 2016 – Police arrest drug dealer, which leads them to Han Seo Hee.

December 9, 2016 – Han Seo Hee leaves for America following YG allegedly pressing her company on why she hadn’t already left.

December 13, 2016Big Bang‘s ‘MADE‘ released.

January 2017 – CEO of Han Seo Hee’s company allegedly tells her that instead of returning to Korea in January as planned, she should stay in America for another month or two until after T.O.P enlists in the military.

February 9, 2017 – T.O.P enlists in the military.

March 2017 – Han Seo Hee arrested for drugs.

March 2017 – Police connect T.O.P to Han Seo Hee in investigations, and they test his hair for drugs which comes up positive.

June 2017 – T.O.P’s positive drug test revealed.


Han Seo Hee has clarified that her August 2016 and October 2016 cases were combined into one case and that she was already sentenced in August of 2017.

Anyway, for all the questions about the timeline, it does generally seem to check out. Assuming this is all true, it makes sense why YG would be freaking out about T.O.P seeing/dating HSH when he knew that HSH was trouble from the B.I investigation. Her being overseas also appears to have worked as intended. That said, this timeline does seem to call into question what exactly the police and prosecutors were doing, so it’s no surprise they are currently continuing to blame each other.

Of course, whether all this turns out to be accurate is still up in the air, as while there are many confirmed events through admission, texts, and records, there are also those that are just reported and alleged as of now. Still, as it stands, it appears that the timeline holds up, it’s just a matter of whether the reports and allegations that contribute to it do.
