On April 25th Park Yoo-chun's lawyer announced that his client is still maintaining innocence of the drug charts. This is in spite of a positive drug test, which even the lawyer seemed to admit would make such a defense untenable.
Park Yoo-chun's lawyer expressed suspicion of how the test, which took place on April 23rd, was able to return a positive result in such a short time frame. Park Yoo-chun's lawyer stated that the specifics of the testing result and process would be closely examined.
Nonetheless Park Yoo-chun's arrest is expected shortly. It is unclear what his strategy may be going forward. If Park Yoo-chun did indeed do drugs, a defense of innocence is obviously untenable and would be difficult to walk back in terms of sentencing.
Park Yoo-chun's career is likely already done for, as he was dropped by his agency following the test result. Of course, Park Yoo-chun has not appeared in any dramas or films for several years at this point, so it's not like there is much of a career to destroy at this point.
