South Korean actor Jung Suk Won, who is also the husband of pop singer Baek Ji Young, has been arrested on drugs charges, police said.

Jung, 33, (seen with Baek Ji Yong, left) was taken into custody at Incheon International Airport late last night for allegedly shooting up with meth in a pub in Australia, an official from the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency said, without giving further details. Police said the arrest was made after they got intelligence on Jung's possible use of the drug on his overseas trip. Jung has apparently admitted using it, the state news ahency Yonhap reports.

Jung's agent said the actor was "earnestly cooperating with the investigation," and it will soon make a statement. Jung started his career as a stunt man then turned to modeling and acting, mostly in local television series. He married Baek in 2013.
