Park Yoochun Banned From MBC For His Drug Charges
Park Yoochun has officially been banned from appearing on all MBC content due to his drug conviction charges. According to an MBC representative, they had decided to add Park Yoochun on the banned-list starting in May after he was first accused of illegal drug use.
Park Yoochun hasn’t been on any MBC program for the past number of years. He was officially listed onto the suspension list after he admitted to his drug charges, the fact that he tested positive during a drug test, and his following arrest.
