‘Nobody Knows’ actress Kim Sae-ron booked, under investigation for DUI

Kim's agency is currently verifying the reports

South Korean actress Kim Sae-ron has been booked and is currently being investigated for allegedly driving under the influence (DUI).

Today (May 18), a spokesperson from the Gangnam Police Station in Seoul said in a statement to South Korean news site OSEN that the Nobody Knows actress has been booked under charges of a drunk driving incident that happened earlier in the morning.

According to Asia Economy, police officers were dispatched to the district of Cheongdam in Gangnam after they received several reports of a vehicle driving unsteadily. Kim then reportedly crashed into a guardrail and a tree around 8am local time, per YTN.


The actress was given a breathalyser test at the scene of the incident, but has since been moved to a hospital after Kim requested a blood test to be taken, according to OSEN. “After the blood is drawn, we will request the National Forensic Service to check the alcohol concentration in the blood,” added the Gangnam Police Station, as translated by Soompi.

Kim’s agency, the privately-held entertainment company Goldmedalist, has since issued a statement about the incident, saying that it was currently verifying the information.

Yesterday, South Korean cable network tvN shared the first look at its upcoming drama Alchemy Of Souls, starring former NU’EST member Hwang Min-hyun. Alchemy of Souls is set to premiere on June 18 at 9:10pm KST, with additional episodes every Saturday and Sunday night. It will also be available to stream on Netflix in selected regions.
