According to news reports, the police have found that Jang had 95 administrations of propofol from December 2011 to September 2012. Park was reported to have been administered propofol 185 times between February 2011 to December 2012, while Lee had been given the drug on 111 occasions during the same time period.

Propofol received heavy media attention as the drug that played a role in the death of Michael Jackson in June 2009. It was revealed that Jackson died from a mixture of propofol and other medical drugs that led him to suffer from cardiac arrest.
