Actor Yoo Ah-in has tested positive for the celebrity knockout drug Propofol after a drug test as part of a police probe into his alleged use of the anesthetic that killed Michael Jackson.
According to police last Saturday, the 37-year-old actor tested positive after police sent hair and urine samples to the National Forensic Services early this month.
The hair sample tested positive for Propofol and another unidentified narcotic, and the urine sample for marijuana.
The doe-eyed "Burning" star has been under police investigation since the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety in a crackdown last year identified some 50 prominent Propofol abusers.
The ministry told the police that the actor was given some 70 injections of the drug at several clinics in 2021 alone.
