Kim Sae Ron has shared a handwritten apology for her recent DUI (driving under the influence) incident.
On May 19, Kim Sae Ron uploaded a handwritten note of apology on her Instagram. Read her post below:
Hello. This is Kim Sae Ron.
First, after getting the accident and damage affairs in order, I apologize for releasing my statement so late.
Yesterday, on May 18 at 8 a.m., I caused an accident damaging public property in Gangnam. I made a big mistake in a drunken state at the time.
Because of my wrong judgement and behavior, I’ve caused an inconvenience to so many people, including merchants in nearby shops, citizens, and those who work to restore [the damage]. Although I needed to act more prudently and with more responsibility, I wasn’t able to do so. I sincerely apologize. I am currently working with my agency to fix the damages caused by the accident and I will do my best to actively communicate and resolve this until the end.
Additionally, I am so sorry to the producers, my fellow actors, and the staff members for hindering the production of the project that is currently filming, as well as the one in preparation. I once again deeply apologize. I am sorry for causing an inconvenience.
I have no excuses for this unfortunate incident and I feel so ashamed and disappointed in myself for the mistake I made. I will deeply reflect and reflect again to ensure that something like this never happens again. I’m sorry.
