Kim Sae Ron attempted to leave the accident scene.
According to numerous K-media reports, actress Kim Sae Ron is being investigated by police for driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI). The investigative report has not yet been made public, but it is likely to be short. Kim Sae Ron was allegedly captured driving under the influence of alcohol on May 18 after six to seven complaints were filed and forwarded to police about a vehicle that was swerving wildly on the road.
After slamming into a building and trying to leave the scene, the actress was apprehended and detained at 8 a.m. KST in the Hakdong area of Gangnam district. The district police intended to administer a breathalyzer test to her, but she begged to be sent to a hospital for a blood test.
According to the police officer:
“According to the citizen’s account, she struck the guardrails many times. The driver has requested a blood alcohol test, therefore we will clarify the precise costs once the test results are available.”
The official went on to say:
“After the blood is obtained, we will request that the National Forensic Service test the blood for alcohol levels.”
Kim’s agency, Gold Medalist, claimed that they are investigating the claims and would notify netizens once the final findings are received. According to the agency:
“We are investigating information that Kim Sae Ron is being probed for breaching the Road Traffic Act (DUI). We will communicate our viewpoint as soon as the news has been verified.”
Reactions from fans
After hearing the news, many netizens took to social media to voice their worry for the actress’s present position. Some argue that Kim should have taken a cab home rather than endangering her life while under the influence of alcohol, while others hope she is safe and did not do any harm.
I hope Kim Sae Ron is doing well physically and emotionally. She probably made a mistake but who do you think you are to judge a person or company? Leave your sick culture of cancellation and judgment. She is a human being ❤

Kim Sae Ron, 21, drunk driving… I know this is insane. I can’t even lift a glass of alcoholic drink at 27. Anyway,
We shouldn’t be canceling her just like that, but k/netz is backfiring in everything that she did before. So… I guess the hard work will now go to waste.
