Actor Son Seung Won has failed to appeal his 1.5-year prison sentence on August 9, during the final day of his 2nd court appeal trial.
On this day, Son Seung Won appeared at court with his hair cut short. During his initial trial, the actor was sentenced to 1.5 years of prison for causing a hit-and-run accident while driving under the influence, during a time frame when his license was revoked due to a prior DUI offense.
During this trial, court officials overturned a decision to rule Son Seung Won as not guilty of danger caused by reckless driving from the initial 1st trial. However, the court took into consideration that Song Seung Won came to a legal settlement with his victims, and ultimately ruled that the original sentence of 1.5 years in prison would uphold.
