Earlier today (Tuesday, 14th September), idol-turned-actress Lizzy (now known by her current stage name Park Soo Ah, 박수아) held a live broadcast through Instagram Live, titled “I’m So Sorry For Disappointing You”.
In the broadcast, the former member of the K-pop girl group After School apologised to her fans in light of her recent drunk driving scandal. Moreover, Lizzy was also seen breaking down in tears as she opened up about her true feelings on the shocking incident.
In case you missed the news, it was previously reported that Lizzy violated road traffic laws by driving under the influence. The idol was driving around Chengdom on 18th May at 10pm KST (9pm local time), when she hit a taxi at a nearby intersection at the sound end of the Yeongdong Bridge.
While there were no major injuries involved, Lizzy’s blood alcohol concentration levels were reportedly high enough for her license to be revoked. The “Oh My Baby” actress later admitted to her drunk driving charges, saying she was ashamed and regretted her actions. She further revealed that she would give her full cooperation to the investigation.
During the live stream, the “Shampoo” singer told her followers, “I wanted to write (my apology) in a letter, but I didn’t think it would be enough.” Lizzy also reflected on her past critical remark about drunk drivers, when she ended up getting involved in a drunk driving scandal herself. She continued expressing her feelings of despair by telling the viewers, “Now…my life is over.”
Additionally, Lizzy also talked about all the pain she had to endure from the malicious comments by online commentators. She stated, “The other driver (from the accident) did not get hurt that much, but the articles went out like that. The public are basically telling one person to die now.”
“In life, there are always moments when people have a hard time. In this situation, there are even comments telling me to make an extreme decision. I did something very wrong, and from the perspective of knowing that I was in the wrong, I am so sorry,” the 29-year-old said.
Lizzy’s first DUI trial is scheduled to be held this coming 27th September.
