This might be old new to everyone, but I don't really keep up with scandals so I never saw what happened to Bom.
Recap of the scandal:
Here's what was uncovered:
Bom was actually living in the US for a long time before she debuted, where she was an avid soccer player.
Netizens found proof of this via articles written about her (her English name was Jenny Park) attending the school that she's pretty well known for attending. The articles proved she was on the soccer team all throughout high school.
It was then discovered that while Bom was on the team (possibly on the field with her teammate...) a close friend and teammate of hers collapsed on the field and died of an aneurysm.
This matches the story released by YG exactly.
YG further explains that Bom was, understandably, traumatized by witnessing the sudden death of her friend that she was prescribed anti-depressants and anti-anxiety drugs. Some ingredients in these pills are LEGAL in the US but ILLEGAL in Korea.
When she received a package of these pills from a relative in America, she didn't even consider that a pill she's been taking her whole life could possibly be illegal.
I personally didn't know that Bom played soccer and I certainly didn't know about the tragedy of her friend.
