At the first hearing at the Seoul Central District Court on Monday, hip-hop producer Kush admitted to violating the drug management law. The prosecution on the case said that he had used cocaine seven times by way of inhalation through his nose. Further, he successfully bought the drug two times and one failed attempt.

As a result of the investigation and Kush’s admitting to drug use, the prosecution is seeking a five-year prison sentence and a fine of 875,000 won ($776).

In response, Kush reportedly bowed his head and accepted the findings and the charges. “I accept all the facts of the charges,” he said. His legal representative talked about the producer’s life and how the stress of his profession led him to break the law.

“Starting at the age of 16 when he started composing music, [Kush] has continued his career in the entertainment industry for many years including being a member of the hip-hop duo Stony Skunk,” said the lawyer. However, as a consequence of entering the industry and becoming independent at a young age, he suffered from “extreme anxiety and stress” during the process.

According to his lawyer, he also developed a chronic panic disorder and had depression. At one time, Kush sought treatment to deal with his illnesses. But as his depression became worsened, he started to suffer from one of its debilitating symptoms, insomnia.

Two years ago in November 2017 was the first time that he took cocaine after an acquaintance offered it to him. According to Kush’s testimony, he went to the emergency room in a lot of pain and attempted suicide. As a result, he received psychiatric treatment. It is unclear if this emergency room trip was a result of taking cocaine.

Kush said that the incident helps him understand what his “precious” in life and apologized for his action. “I’m sorry, but I hope that I can make up for [the crime] for the rest of my life,” he said.

Moreover, earlier this year actor Jung Suk-won conceded to police that he had used methamphetamine while on a trip to Australia.
