B.I (25, real name Kim Han-bin), who withdrew from the group iKON due to a cannabis wave, appeared on Epik High’s album, and voices are being told whether a return is imminent. On the 11th, Epik High released the 3rd polaroid teaser image featuring the first album’Epik High Is Here Award’ through their official social network service (SNS). This is a featuring lineup, including CL, Zico, Hayes, Changmo, Woo Wonjae, Gsoul Smile, and B.I. B.I, who was known about drug use in 2019, drew attention after leaving the team as an executive director of IOK Company, an entertainment planner. IOK is a company with many popular broadcasters including actors Jo In-seong and Ko Hyun-jung, and Lee Young-ja, Kim Sook, Kim Na-young, and Moon Hee-jun. Since then, the agency has continued to volunteer at childcare facilities, providing goods for the vulnerable in Korea, and carrying out activities such as briquette delivery, and the agency has stated that “it is not a good deed for return.” Previously, in 2016, it was known that he had bought cannabis through a public service reporter and smoked. At the time, Mr. Han revealed in a police investigation that “they testified that B.I was taking drugs, but the investigation was not carried out. Rather, the former YG Entertainment (YG) chief producer Yang Hyun-seok called him to the office and threatened to overturn the testimony.” There was a ripple. B.I later denied smoking, but admitted it after leaving the team. As a result, public opinion has risen over whether B.I is starting to return with Epik High album featuring, etc., and voices of criticism and advocacy have also emerged. Netizens are divided into reactions such as “Isn’t it just last year, but I’m returning too quickly”, “It’s still too early to come back”, “I’m just doing something to do”, and “I’ll finally hear your voice.” Meanwhile, Epik High’s new album will be released on the 18th.
