Jonghun under fire for joking about his DUI arrest and attempted bribery


F.T.Island's Jonghun joked about his arrest back in 2016 which has netizens furious.

'Section TV' revealed messages that  Jonghun had sent in 2016, after he was arrested for drunk driving. In his chatroom, he said, "The Chrome Hearts hurt quite a bit. Don't even say anything if you've never had the experience. Before I got it put on, I told [the police officer] that I'd give him ten million KRW."

He was referring to the handcuffs as jewelry. A criminal psychology professor said, "It seems like he didn't know how serious bribing police officials were. If he goes to trial, these words will put him at an incredible disadvantage."

The words have also infuriated netizens, who commented, "I can't believe he's showing off a DUI arrest," "I guess he thinks it was all a joke", "I guess he's reaping what he sowed," and more.

What do you think about his comments?

Sadly a lot of 20 year old guys brag they got out of getting caught on something. Some things that are sort of benign and big things. It isn't just Korean celebrities it can be guys in the U.S. too. Biologically men's brains do not finish growing until 26. Women's several years before that. I used to tell my daughter to be careful with her choices because her front lobe wasn't fully developed yet. She didn't think it was very funny.
