Wonho first debuted in Starship Entertainment’s group Monsta X with members Shownu, Minhyuk, Kihyun, Hyungwon, Joohoney, and I.M. He departed from the group in October 2019 when he was accused of marijuana use. He was cleared of all charges by the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency in March 2020.
“The Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency’s drug investigation team cleared Wonho, a former member of the idol group Monsta X, of all charges against him on March 10th after closing an investigation into the drug, including marijuana,” Starship Entertainment said in a statement.
The company continued, “During the long investigation, we tried our best to minimize media exposure to Wonho and to appoint an attorney to ensure that there are no charges against him. We will continue to fully support Wonho for developing his own career in the future.”
Wonho signed with Highline Entertainment
In April 2020, it was announced that the singer signed with Highline Entertainment as a solo artist and producer. Highline Entertainment is a subsidiary of Starship Entertainment, so he is still within the same parent company as Monsta X.
After signing with Highline Entertainment, Wonho released a statement for fans who continued supporting him after he left Monsta X.
“I am deeply reflecting on my foolish and thoughtless actions from the past. I am very thankful to the fans who have given me this opportunity, and I will do my best to repay the support you have given me,” he said.
