Super Junior's Kangin is set to stand trial for his DUI next month.

Though he was already issued a fine of 7,000,000 KRW (approximately $6,050 USD) for his DUI accident on May 24, it looks as if he's still been called to court as previously reported. Kangin will be undergoing a formal trial at Seoul Central District Court on August 17. 

A legal rep stated in earlier reports that a more thorough analysis of the case was required, and the court also considered that this is not Kangin's first DUI offense. 

Stay tuned for updates.

I suppose everyone is happy now that he's going to "trial" and will be punished to their satisfaction. Never mind that most of you have no idea what kind of punishment the average Korean gets who commits DUI. Even though they have DUI laws Korea is notoriously lenient on drunks no matter what kind of crime they commit. Never mind that the dude is probably an alcoholic and needs rehab more than jail time. Let's make sure he receives the maximum punishment including losing his job. Because....I don't fucking know why really.

I know that they are more lenient with drunk drivers. But I could care less about him losing his job. He didn't care about his life or others both times. If he is put in jail i hope this will teach him a lesson before a third time happens and he hurts or kills someone. He definitely needs help one way or another. Fining him is just rediculous to me

He needed to have his licence revoked. He can afford a cab or a driver. However, in Korea you don't even need to be drunk to be a crappy driver. I find it a bit hypocritical of people to condone the level of drinking that's promoted in Korea. Mostly ignore day to day traffic violations and then throw the book at a celebrity Just to make an example.

I agree. They should all be treated equally. I wish they had or will create harsher laws or penalties about this. People need to realize that drinking and driving is not ok. Maybe this will finally get them to change the penalty for everyone. Especially if the offense happened more than once

Korea has a very low blood alcohol level at something like .05 now. The law also allows for jail time and licence revocation. However I believe it's customary for most courts to issue fines. Korean law also allows for people to "compensate" their way out of many other kinds of crimes.

Firs of all, we don't know if he is going to jail. Secondly, seems you are saying though we all agree that he needs a harsher penalty but since every other korean is getting it off lightly, he should too?

Yeah that's exactly what I'm saying. No I don't know that he's going to jail. I'm suspecting he might also get his licence suspended. I don't find that overly harsh. But there are people calling for his withdrawal from the group. Suggesting that he serve maximum jail terms. It's pretty bloodthirsty in my opinion and only because he's a celebrity.

I think we need to separate what the general public wants and what the law enforcer will do. He is a celebrity so of course he is subjected to greater scrutiny by the public, it comes with the job. As for the legal system singling him, there is no proof on that. How do you know if he is the only twice DUI with high alcohol content case to get called up by the court.

Well, a good indication that public opinion was involved is because he's already been fined by the court. Obviously in Korean court they can get a second swipe at you if it becomes politically expedient for you. That's just what appears to have happened here.
