After the initial report came out, more details regarding the incident have been revealed. It turns out there was an announcement asking for Noh Hong Chul's car to be moved due to the way it was parked. Hearing this, the entertainer headed out and drove his car to re-park about 20-30 meters before he was caught by the police.
His shows had said earlier on in the day that they were negotiating his future appearances on the show, and it seems Noh Hong Chul has decided to withdraw from 'Infinity Challenge' and 'I Live Alone'.
His official apology read,
"This is Noh Hong Chul.
I want to sincerely apologize for causing all the viewers concern with the news of my drunk driving early this morning.
Due to a wrong split-second decision, I showed a disappointing side to everyone who has cherished me until now, and for that I feel very sorry. I'm deeply reflecting for not holding up myself in the right manner.
Therefore, I have told the staff of the programs I appear in of my decision to withdraw. This is a decision I made so that I may not cause any further discomfort to all the viewers.
I will hold a time of self-reflection and deeply re-think my actions over and over. I once again apologize to all the viewers."
The staff of the show are said to be currently discussing whether to keep the pre-recorded footage of Noh Hong Chul on the upcoming episodes or edit him out.
