Mnet Postpones Airing ‘Band Generation’ Finale After A Second Member Of Galaxy Express Is Investigated For Using Marijuana The Seoul Central Supreme Prosecutor's Office announced Wednesday that Galaxy Express guitarist Park Jong Hyun will be questioned in court about his alleged use of marijuana.

 

The Seoul Central Supreme Prosecutor's Office announced Wednesday that Galaxy Express guitarist Park Jong Hyun will be questioned in court about his alleged use of marijuana, according to the South Korean news service Nate.

The announcement comes less than a week after the group's lead singer and bassist Lee Joo Hyun was charged with possession, production and usage of marijuana. 

Galaxy Express made it into the finals of the Mnet televised battle of the bands "Band Generation," but in light of the band's recent legal troubles the scheduled airtime for the episode has been postponed.

"Due to the fact that a team set to appear [Galaxy Express] is under investigation by the prosecutor's office, the finals of 'Band Generation,' that was due to air at 11 p.m., will now be put off," the show's producers wrote on Wednesday in an official statement.

The show was replaced with a "Band Generation' best-of compilation.

But Park's troubles could be more serious than postponed publicity.

Seoul Chief Prosecutor Yoon Jae Pil, who reportedly ordered the guitarist to testify, claims he has a witness who has seen the musician using marijuana on several occasions.

Park was scheduled to appear in court on Monday, but was granted an extension.

Galaxy Express's bass player Lee was busted for smoking marijuana on July 2. According to the website allkpop, he has been arrested for using the drug once before.

Back in April, Lee owned up to having a rebellious past in an interview with Seoul Magazine.

"I wonder if I've ever worked hard for anything other than music. I was literally living for music the whole six years [since this band started in 2006]," he said.

"Back in school, I was doing bad, bad things."

The singer also sounded off about the seemingly endless line of boy bands and girl groups that dominate the K-pop landscape.

"Because we pursue different things from K-pop artists [in Galaxy Express], the popularity of girl groups and boy bands does not have a big effect on us," Lee said.

"In fact, we're just paving our own road."

Although he admits the popularity of K-pop has allowed him a respite from questions regarding Korea's political tension between the nations of the north and south when he travels overseas.

"Years ago when I was visiting France, all people asked me about were North Korea, Kim Jung-il, and missile tests," said the Galaxy Express bassist.

"They thought Korea was at war and asked me if I was okay. But I don't get that now. K-pop is more popular than [former North Korean leader] Kim Il Sung now."
