In August of last year, he was indicted for illegally using Propofol. The first trial hearing, which was then held on January 19, saw Wheesung pleading guilty to most of his charges and a sentence of three years in prison.

In response, it was revealed that Wheesung had been having a hard time after the passing of his father and other acquaintances. Representatives of the singer also commented on his mental health, stating that he showed symptoms of depression and a panic disorder, resulting in extreme thoughts.

In addition, he is said to continue with treatment for this once the investigation is over.
