Actor Son Seung Won attempts hit and run while DUI with no driver's license

Actor Son Seung Won (28) is under fire for DUI. 

Around 4:20 am on December 26 in Cheongdam-dong, Gangnam, Son Seung Won drove his parents' Mercedes Benz in an intoxicated state and ran into a car driving in another lane. He attempted to run from the scene by continuing to drive, however, taxi drivers who witnessed the accident blocked his way and he was stopped.

The police revealed Son Seung Won's alcohol level was at 0.206% which is high enough for driver's license suspension. However, Son Seung Won's driver's license was already suspended back on November 18 for DUI. 

Son Seung Won revealed to have been involved in 3 DUI cases so far. The police plan to officially issue an arrest warrant for Son. 

Actor Jung Hwi revealed he was in the car with Son Seung Won at the time of the accident. He apologized for failing to stop him from driving and revealed he was flustered by Son Seung Won who suddenly demanded to drive. 


Meanwhile, the producers of the musical 'Rimbaud' revealed the remaining shows with Son Seung Won has been canceled.

"-he was flustered by Son Seung Won who suddenly demanded to drive."


LMAO. Ae you fucking stupid? When you know your friend or colleague is too drunk to drive, you fucking step up like a grown ass adult. Not become flustered. They should both be tried. Kiss your reputations goodbye.

An article on another site said that they were all drinking and the friend was in the back seat waiting for a designated driver when the guy got in insisting on driving. So the friend was drunk too and probably not clear-headed enough to figure out how to stop the guy from driving.

Really? Maybe the best you can do is go with the guy instead of refusing to get in the car. What are you going to do unless you've got the strength to stop him, honey? I see you've not dealt with too many obnoxious drunks before, have you? They are really hard to deal with.

just how badly do you hate your miserable life to be so sexist and blame all men for not paying you ugly scum any attention, that you even sink so low to wish all male celebrities to die and call them all criminals and rapists, who use their money and fame to get away from all punishments...and even get happy when innocent ones die like you showed so nicely when jonghyun died...

Another acting career in the toilet....

So I just went to Soompi (which always has more reliable details, BTW) and the passenger (Jung Hwi) was sitting in the back of the car waiting for the designated driver when his buddy suddenly got in front and started driving.

SOOOOO all you second-guessers ragging on the guy for not stopping his friend, exactly how would you suggest he could have done that? He didn't have second sight - he didn't realize the idiot wasn't waiting just like he was! I swear some little netizens just need to go out in the real world a bit more....

I agree that their acquaintances around them should have alerted the police, but then again it is HIGHLY likely that they were all drunk as well. Korea needs to do better with its drinking culture and the effects it has on society. It you want to promote heavy and excessive drinking you need to equally promote, if not push more, for responsible drinking. Also have laws that support responsible drinking behavior and actions. The fact that people can be jailed for smoking weed 10 yrs ago but walk away with a slap on the wrist for a DUI is laughable.

He had at least 9 plus drinks based on his score 0.206 depending on his weight. He was totally wasted at the least and obviously an alcoholic that needed help after the first DUI. Unfortunately, alcoholism and drinking in almost ever drama watched is the norm - not the exception. Walking while drunk, puking on people, getting attacked while drunk, piggyback rides while drunk and work place requirements to drink to the excess are all part of the images that we are shown as normal for Korean society. Therefore, it will be hard to imagine this young man's career being completely ruined -- Maybe the writers, directors, and other actors will give him a Daesang for most "authenic role playing award "for 2018. The neitzens are going to have a field day with this poor guy. Get him some help PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!

Lmao. Wtf the person in the car with him is the biggest idiot. Gotta say though he's one brave guy for not being concerned he could be killed as a passenger. The both of them need to be locked up.

The biggest idiot is the person who decides to get behind the wheel drunk. The guy in the backseat was RESPONSIBLE enough to wait for his designated driver instead of trying to drive himself. It's obvious he was drunk too. One drunk telling another drunk what they should or shouldn't do is a recipe for disaster. This is no one's fault except for the driver.

You people ragging on the passenger are just ignorant - he probably decided to go with his friend as being better than letting him go off alone, after being unable to stop him driving. It's HARD to control drunks - really.

"Actor Jung Hwi revealed he was in the car with Son Seung Won at the time of the accident. He apologized for failing to stop him from driving and revealed he was flustered by Son Seung Won who suddenly demanded to drive. "

Did he apologize for not stopping his friend from trying to run away?
