It's been belatedly revealed that veteran comedian Han Sang Gyu rescued a female victim from a scene of dating violence, back on May 25.
According to Kyungnam police, a taxi driver 'A' was arrested for charges including detention on May 30. Back on May 25 at approximately 2 AM KST, 'A' forced his girlfriend who attempted to break up with him into his taxi, where he drove her from Busan to Kyungnam. While stopped in front of a traffic light, 'A's girlfriend 'B' exited the car to get away, after which 'A' chased her and tried to drag her back into the vehicle. Comedian Han Sang Gyu, who witnessed the scene while passing by due to his schedules, got out of his own vehicle and interfered, preventing 'A' from further action. Han Sang Gyu then called the police to the scene, rescuing 'B'.
Han Sang Gyu debuted back in 1995 as a comedian under KBS, appearing on comedy shows such as 'Gag Concert', 'Show! Lucky Train', 'Laughter Club', and more.
