    Park Yu-chun of boy band JYJ is being investigated on charges of taking drugs with an ex-girlfriend.

    About a dozen police officers raided Park's house in Hanam, Gyeonggi Province on Tuesday to search for evidence and collect hair samples for a drug test.

    Park Yu-chun of boy band JYJ, reads a statement during a press conference in Seoul on April 10.

    Park, who weathered a string of rape allegations in 2016, is the latest casualty in a crackdown on celebrity misbehavior after the arrest of Hwang Ha-na last week on charges of buying and taking methamphetamines.

    Hwang, the granddaughter of the Namyang Dairy Products founder, told police she took them with Park.

    Police initially did not disclose the full name of her alleged partner in crime, but as rumors started to swirl, Park held a press conference on April 10 to protest his innocence.

    He has now been slapped with a travel ban.

    Park and Hwang dated a couple of years ago and planned to get married in September 2017 but split up the next year.
