Police have raided singer Park Yoo-chun's house over drug abuse allegations.

The Southern Gyeonggi Provincial Police Agency said the raid began at 9 a.m. on Tuesday. 

The 32-year-old singer’s residence in Hanam, Gyeonggi Province, vehicle and mobile phone were subject to the search and confiscation, while his hair was sampled for a drug test. 

The former member of the boy band, TVXQ, is suspected of using meth with his former girlfriend early this year. Park's ex-girlfriend, Hwang Ha-na, granddaughter of the founder of Namyang Dairy Products, is already under investigation on drug-related charges. 

Hwang admitted to police that she used meth in February and March of this year with a celebrity acquaintance who is also being investigated.

Park called a press conference last week to deny suspicions that he was the celebrity Hwang referred to.
