K-Pop idol B.I has announced his decision to leave group iKON after news of him allegedly purchasing illegal drugs in 2016 broke earlier today.
On an Instagram note, he admitted that he attempted to deal with his issues through buying the substance and apologized to fans.
"This is Kim Han Bin (real name). First, I would like to sincerely apologize for stirring up trouble due to my tremendously inappropriate actions. It is true that I wanted to rely on something that I shouldn’t have had any interest in due to going through a hard and painful time. However, I was too scared and fearful to do it.
"Even so, I am so ashamed and apologetic to fans who were greatly disappointed and hurt because of my wrong words and actions. I intend to humbly self-reflect on my mistake and leave the team.
"Once again, I bow my head down and sincerely apologize to fans and the members. I apologize."
