Seoul police announced on the 11th that they have arrested 28-year old Mr. K, who is from The Netherlands, on charges of growing and selling marijuana and ecstasy, as well as Mr. Y, an American soldier, on charges of buying the drugs.

According to police, Mr. K is accused of growing 45 marijuna plants using lights and fans placed in his home in Itaewon beginning in February.

Mr. K, who teaches Dutch to Koreans working in the Netherlands Embassy, is also accused of selling over 20 ecstasy pills to Mr. Y beginning in February. Prosecutors are investigating to determine whether he may have committed other crimes, as he appears to have been an expert in illegal drug selling considering his experience with marijuana and ecstasy.
