Kwak Do Won has been booked by the police for driving under the influence of alcohol.
On September 25, the Jeju Seobu Police Station officially announced that the actor had been indicted for drunk driving after falling asleep in a stopped car in the middle of the road. According the police, they received a report that a car on the road was not moving early that morning, and upon arriving on the scene, they discovered Kwak Do Won asleep in an SUV on a road in front of an elementary school at around 5 a.m.
Kwak Do Won’s blood alcohol content was found to be at a level high enough for his driver’s license to be revoked (0.08 percent or higher).
The actor is said to have immediately acknowledged the fact that he had been drunk driving, and he also confessed that he had driven approximately 10 kilometers (approximately 6.2 miles) while intoxicated.
“Fortunately, this was a case of drunk driving that did not lead to another accident,” stated a spokesperson for the police. “We plan to call [Kwak Do Won] in again for a more detailed investigation.”
Kwak Do Won’s agency MADA Entertainment has since released a formal apology for the incident in which they stated, “We deeply apologize for the fact that this shameful incident took place. Regardless of the reason, there is no room for excuses, and both Kwak Do Won and our agency fully realize our responsibility.
“We apologize for giving cause for concern to the many people who have been watching Kwak Do Won, and we sincerely apologize once again for causing a stir. We will quickly figure out a way to avoid inflicting damages on the many people who work together with [Kwak Do Won] as much as we can. Once again, we bow our heads in deep apology.”
