The 23-year-old actor sparked controversy when she was caught by the cops after they received several complaints about violating the Road Safety Act on the roads of Cheongdam district of Seoul’s Gangnam area. Reportedly, she hit a transformer box and a guard rail while driving under the influence.

Following the reports, her the-then agency GOLDMEDALIST issued a statement and apologised to the public. It read, “Kim Sae Ron is deeply reflecting on her mistakes. In addition, Kim Sae Ron sincerely apologizes to the many people who have suffered damage and inconvenience and to all those who are working hard to restore the damaged public facilities, and promised to do her best to repair the damage.”

The actor also penned a handwritten letter on social media and shared, “I had an accident yesterday on May 18th around 8 am in Gangnam destroying public waste. I made a big mistake by being drunk at that time. My wrong judgement and actions have caused damage to so many people, merchants, citizens, and restorers. I should have been more careful and responsible, but I failed. I sincerely apologize. The damage caused by the accident is currently being sorted out with the company and will do our best to communicate and proactively resolve it until the end.” She also paid for the damages.
