On May 18, Kim Sae Ron was reportedly caught driving under the influence of alcohol after six to seven reports were made and sent to the police about a car that was uncontrollably swerving on the road.

The actress was caught and held around 8 am KST in the Hakdong neighborhood of Gangnam district after ramming into a structure and attempting to flee the scene. The district police wanted to conduct a breathalyzer test on her, but the actress requested to be transported to a hospital to undergo a blood test.

The police official stated:

"The report from the citizen stated that she hit the guardrails several times. The driver wants to conduct a blood alcohol test, so we will confirm the exact charges after the test results are out."

"After the blood is drawn, we will request the National Forensic Service to check the alcohol concentration in the blood."

Kim’s agency, Gold Medalist, stated that they are currently looking into the reports and will update netizens about the same after receiving the final results. The agency stated:

"We are currently looking into reports that Kim Sae Ron is being investigated for violating the Road Traffic Act (DUI). We will convey our position as soon as we have confirmed the news."

Fan reactions

Many netizens have taken to social media platforms to express concern over the actress’s current situation upon hearing the news. Some state that Kim should have taken a taxi to reach home rather than risking her life while under the influence of alcohol, whereas some are hoping that Kim is safe and did not hurt anyone.

@Lovekpop95C I hope Kim Sae Ron is doing well physically and emotionally. She probably made a mistake but who do you think you are to judge a person or company? Leave your sick culture of cancellation and judgment. She is a human being ❤
Kim sae ron, Thankfully no one's hurt including yourself, I hope you're okay both physically and emotionally. You got this, everything will be okay!
@theseoulstory I hope she’s ok and no one got hurt
Kim Sae Ron, 21, drunk driving... I know this is insane. I can't even lift a glass of alcoholic drink at 27. Anyway, We shouldn't be canceling her just like that, but k/netz is backfiring in everything that she did before. So... I guess the hard work will now go to waste.
kim sae ron’s still young though.. drunk driving is not tolerable, I hope she learned something from this. Been waiting for her to have the right projects because she’s good. The 3 kim’s of her generation.
#KimSaeRon have two upcoming projects SBS drama #Trolley and Netflix #BloodHounds 💔
Kim Sae Ron, what did you do? 😔 So many other artists got their career ruined bc of the same mistake and I hate to see the same things happen to you.
What's going on with Kim Sae Ron....DUI at 8 AM in Seoul....girl! Not cool, get help and be thankful you were safe and nobody else got hurt!
