The granddaughter of the Namyang Dairy Products founder was arrested on Saturday on charges of drug abuse.
Hwang Ha-na, an ex-girlfriend of Park Yu-chun of boy band JYJ, has been investigated for her alleged fondness for crystal meth after being introduced to the drug by a showbiz friend.
Hwang was hospitalized last week but court authorized her arrest citing a flight risk.
The heiress is charged with taking methamphetamines and the psychotropic drug Clonazepam over the past few years. Police said Hwang admitted to some of the alleged offenses but blamed the showbiz friend for supplying the drugs. She denies distributing them herself.
In 2015, she was caught supplying 0.5 g of crystal meth to a university student and taking the drug with him, but she was released without charge, triggering suspicions of preferential treatment by the police.
