Former MONSTA X member WonHo who was investigated by the police for smoking marijuana was cleared of all charges. In October 2019, allegations were made against WonHo claiming that he smoked marijuana in 2013.
On Mar. 14, Starship Entertainment released a statement saying that the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency's drug investigation unit ended its investigation on WonHo's drug charges and that they cleared him of all charges on Mar. 10.
They further explained that for the past five months, WonHo actively cooperated with the police investigation. In the end, they did not find anything suspicious and they close the investigation.
Starship continued by saying that during this long time of the investigation they tried to minimize WonHo's exposure to the outside. They appointed a lawyer to make sure he was not falsely accused. They waited during this long time of the investigation.
The agency added, "We will fully support WonHo so he can go in the path he chooses in the future".
WonHo's sudden departure from the group last Oct. 31 was a shock for MONBEBE. Since then they never stopped showing support for WonHo through hashtags and multiple other ways.
With the news of WonHo being free of charges, MONBEBE decided to make the special song 'From Zero' top charts worldwide to celebrate and show WonHo that they are waiting for him to come back "home".
