G-Dragon showed up in person to the police for their preliminary inquiry into the drug charges against him, where he ultimately tested negative. Kwon Ji Yong, better known as G-Dragon, reportedly submitted hair and urine samples for testing and underwent a reagent test at the Narcotics Unit of the Regional Investigation Department of the Incheon Metropolitan Police Agency on November 6.
The lab results were unfavourable. The K-pop artist said to the press, “I’ve also requested an urgent thorough examination.” He elaborated on what had happened during the session, saying that he hadn’t turned over his phone yet but that he was eager to cooperate if necessary.
He “doesn’t believe there would be any,” the Crayon singer said when asked if there was evidence of his drug use. The K-pop artist has stated that he does not find the probe to be “unreasonable,” but that he does wish for a fair resolution to the situation.
In my opinion, it’s not too much to ask. The cops are not out to get me personally; they are merely carrying out their duties in response to a report. “I also believe that I am here for the investigation because it is part of my job to deny or, rather, I would say, to prove that the allegations are unfounded,” he told the journalists.

But he continued, “I hope that unverified claims will not be insisted upon,” and he expressed optimism for a just settlement. G-Dragon remarked that he wasn’t sure yet of what was going to happen, but then wanted for authorities to announce the results as quickly as possible. For his fans’ sake, he says they should be “not too worried.”
As he put it, “I hope you believe in me and await.”
After being jailed on October 25 for an inquiry into drug use allegations, G-Dragon refuted the allegations, saying, “there is no truth to the [claim] that I have taken drugs.” There were rumours that members of other K-pop groups, such as BTS, LE SSERAFIM’s Kim Chaewon, and (G)I-DLE’s Jeon Soyeon and Park Sun Joo, were engaged in his case. However, authorities quickly denied any wrongdoing on the part of their respective agencies.
