Son Seung Won Under Investigation For Driving Under The Influence Without A License

Actor Son Seung Won is currently under investigation for driving under the influence without a license.

According to the Gangnam Police Station, “Investigation is currently under way for the car accident instigated by Son Seung Won, who was driving under the influence without a license. However, we cannot reveal specifics as the investigation is ongoing.”

They stated that at 4:20 a.m. KST on December 26, Son Seung Won was involved in a car accident in Cheongdam-dong, Seoul. At the time of the accident, the actor had a blood alcohol content of 0.206 percent, which would get his license canceled. However, it has been revealed that Son Seung Won’s driver’s license was already canceled at the time of the accident, being canceled on November 18 as he had been caught drunk driving in September. Son Seung Won is said to have instigated the accident, crashing his car into a different car.

When asked for comment, Blossom Entertainment stated that their contract with Son Seung Won ended in early October, and they had decided to not renew the contract. They added, “Son Seung Won is scheduled for performances till January 2019, and he has been going to his performances without support from an agency. We were not aware of the drunk driving incident until reports began to emerge, and we have not been able to get in contact with him since.”

Son Seung Won is currently appearing in the musical “Rimbaud.” The production staff was contacted and they stated, “We are currently in talks after hearing the news. We believe a casting change is unavoidable. We are currently talking to the other actors about their schedules.”

Son Seung Won has previously appeared in dramas “Age of Youth 2” and “Waikiki.”

He's just trash for doing that because he put people's lives in danger just by driving drunk.

Not only that but another actor was in his car (Jung Hwi) and the fact that he didn't stop him or convince him to grab a taxi or valet driving (two things that are big in Korea due to the dirnking culture) makes him semi-responsible too.
