Actor Kim Sung-min has again been arrested for possession and ingestion of methamphetamines. Kim was sentenced to two years and six months in jail on the same charges in 2011.
Police in Seongnam, Gyeonggi Province said Wednesday they arrested five dealers who smuggled the illegal drug into Korea and sold them to entertainers and juveniles here.
Kim was among 10 customers caught in the sting operation.
The dealers allegedly smuggled in 150 grams of methamphetamines from Cambodia. They advertised the drugs on the Internet and charged W400,000-W600,000 (US$1=W1,128) for an 0.4 g dose.
Kim allegedly paid the dealer W1 million on a street corner in Gangnam for 0.8 g on Nov. 24. Police arrested the actor at his home on Wednesday morning. Kim admitted to taking the drug once.
