2NE1 fans have been trending the hashtag #WeAreWithBom after Park Bom gave an interview speaking out about her mental health issues and drug smuggling scandal.

in 2014, Bom was accused of trying to smuggle amphetamines into Korea from the US via post. At the time, YG Entertainment issued a statement saying the medication was prescribed to the singer by an American university hospital to treat a psychological condition caused by childhood trauma. The case was dismissed after Bom turned in her medical records.

Now Bom has spoken with Sports Kyunghyang for the first time about the scandal, and said that the medication was Adderall for her ADD.

"I didn't want to disclose that I had ADD, but there was no other way. People thought I was a drug smuggler because I was carrying Adderall. In America, it's a type of medication to deal with my illness".

Fans have since been sharing their admiration and love for Bom with the #WeAreWithBom hashtag.
