Korean actress Kim Sae Ron is under investigation for driving under the influence of alcohol.
Based on an article by Soompi, the Seoul Gangnam Police Station received multiple calls at around 8 a.m KST about a car that was driving unsteadily in the district of Cheongdam in Gangnam. It was said that the vehicle crashed into a structure and the driver was reportedly Sae Ron.
The police officer asked her to take a breathalyzer to see if she was drunk driving but the actress chose to take a blood test instead. They then moved to a hospital and planned to "request the National Forensic Service to check the alcohol concentration in the blood."
On the same day, GOLDMEDALIST Entertainment, Sae Ron's label, released a statement in relation to what happened. "Kim Sae Ron took a blood test for accurate results, and after the test, she was escorted home by her guardian without additional investigation. The results of the blood test will be available in two weeks, and Kim Sae Ron will faithfully respond to the police's questioning afterward," they said.
Sae Ron started as a child actress and has appeared in various series such as Fashion King, Hi! School Love: On, Secret Healer, and The Great Shaman Ga Doo Shim. Her upcoming project is the Netflix Original Korean drama Hunting Dogs—in which the shooting schedule will be adjusted following the incident.
