Kim Sae Ron's attorney says he can't get in contact with the actress following the fake cafe employment controversy


Kim Sae Ron has been embroiled in a string of controversies after her first DUI trial when she pleaded for leniency, stating that she is the primary breadwinner of the family. After that, she posted photos of her working at a cafe, which backfired after the cafe company stated that Kim Sae Ron had never worked for any of their branch cafes.

Then on March 15, Kim Sae Ron's legal representative, an attorney from the DR & AJU Law Group, explained that he has not been able to get in contact with the actress since the cafe controversy. Her attorney stated, "It is true that Kim Sae Ron is suffering from financial difficulty. She is in debt after the fine she incurred due to her DUI accident and it is true she is working part-time."

The attorney added, "I know she was working at one place before but I didn't know she was working in multiple places. I speculate that she (is working in multiple places, after seeing the photos of the cafe). I contacted her after seeing the articles to clarify the facts but I was unable to reach her so I have not been able to confirm."

He continued, "I don't have anything else to say about the fake cafe part-time photos. What I know for sure is that she is working part-time. She has left the apartment belonging to her previous agency but I can't confirm if she is living with her family again. She doesn't want any new information being released."

Meanwhile, Kim Sae Ron has received much backlash for posting photos of herself working at a cafe. Especially after it was revealed that she had hired one of the most expensive law firms to represent her during the trial.

Well... This doesn't sound good... Let's just hope she decided to live without social media for a while and is just chilling with a friend or something... Cause when it comes to Korea, you can't help but to have that other option in the back of your mind...

What is happening with her?

Here's what I've read so far:

- She drove under the influence.

- Afterwards, she had a birthday party with alcohol served.

- She allegedly hired an expensive legal team to represent her (though others have pointed out that it may have been her previous agency who hired the team, which is valid.)

- She/her legal team claims that she's been having financial difficulty since the DUI.

- To support this, there's the $15,000 fine, loss of any deals/work she had lined up, and she had to pay restitution to the businesses that were affected by her knocking out power during her DUI, and she claims her family depends on her income.

- She posted photos of her appearing to work at a coffee shop, which the coffee company revealed were staged, and she had never worked for them.

- She isn't contacting her own legal team.

Like, during any step of this, will she take responsibility? I don't want to think about it, but someone needs to check on her because she's not living in the real world. Who knows what she might do.
