Starlet in T.O.P. Drug Scandal Announces Singing Debut

In confirmation of the adage that all publicity is good publicity, the aspiring starlet convicted of smoking marijuana with Big Bang's T.O.P has revealed her debut plans.
Han Seo-hee is to be part of a four-member manufactured girl band that will be launched in January next year. She is currently serving a four-year suspended sentence.
She announced the schedule in a live feed on Instagram on Sunday. "I decided to give it a try because I will be blamed anyway even if I keep quiet," she said.
She admitted that she smoked marijuana but claimed that T.O.P encouraged her and that she was in a relationship with him.
Han immediately started trending on social media, though many commenters took a dim view of the publicity stunt, and her agency's server went down on Sunday morning.
After appearing on an MBC's talent show in 2012, Han joined a management agency but failed to make a debut. Now she is with a small new agency, which has not yet made any official comments about the plan.
