Just as we thought Kim Hyun Joong’s (김현중) drama was over, he is in trouble for DUI (driving under the influence).
It was reported that the idol got his license suspended due to drunk driving. According to Soompi, a driver called the police at around 2am on 26th March because the car in front of him “wasn’t moving for a while”. When the police came, they found Kim sleeping in his BMW with a blood alcohol level of 0.075%, which is an automatic license suspension.
On Thursday (30th March), Kim’s label, KeyEast Entertainment, released a statement to address his DUI case. They said that the actor was drinking with his friends near his house. He was then asked to move his car by a parking attendant.
They continued, “He hadn’t slept for a few days to practice for his concert, and while he didn’t even drive 1km, he was asked to submit to a blood alcohol test and had his driver’s license suspended. Regardless of the reason, it was wrong for Kim Hyun Joong to get behind the wheel and he understands that what he did is wrong and he is reflecting. We will be careful so that this doesn’t happen again in the future.”
The 30-year-old singer was discharged from the military in February has been preparing for a comeback fan meeting.
Please be careful next time, Kim Hyun Joong 🙁
