E-sens of the popular hip hop duo Supreme Team has recently admitted to smoking marijuana.
The young artist held a press conference in Mapo of Seoul at his agency's office, regarding his sudden announcement of temporarily retiring from the entertainment industry. On this day, November 2nd at 5 PM, E-sens revealed that he had gotten called in for marijuana investigations.
He confessed that he had indeed used the drug, wanting to come clean to the public before police reports hit the press.
According to police investigations, E-sens had smoked the drug on numerous occasion at his home since early this year. The drug investigations started in September, with the positive test results coming out late October. E-sens laid out everything honestly, admitting that he had started the drug about a year ago through people he knew. He had even smoked it in his company building.
The rapper gave a statement with his head tilted down in shame, "First of all, I want to thank all the fans that have loved our music until now. I want to apologize to all of the entertainment related people who have looked upon me and my agency favorably. It started simply out of curiosity, but I'm aware more than anyone else that such an impulsive and wrong decision is illegal and carries negative social effects that cannot be excused or forgiven".
The Supreme Team member was the one to make the decision to step away and temporarily take a break from his hip hop and music activities.
This is following his and fellow member Simon Dominic's debut in 2009 as Supreme Team.
He continued, "Although I'm not a famous celebrity that everyone knows, the youth that come across my music are still directly or indirectly affected. Thus as that kind of public figure, I've decided that I need to admit my wrongdoings and beg for the public's forgiveness. So this is why I got the courage to come before you ashamed like this.
As for his agency, Amoeba Culture, it expressed that it'd stand by E-sens while he goes through rehabilitation and then support him with his music afterwards. It did clarify that other Amoeba Culture musicians or staff weren't involved in his drug activities. The company expressed its hope that the involved people will be called in by the police as soon as possible.
