I thought getting a cab or designated driver would solve the drunken driving incidents common in high drinking countries including South Korea, but then it doesn’t solve the other potential drunken misconduct problems that could arise with a third party around. K-actor Lee Kyu Han, a seasoned character actor with tons of face recognition even if audiences don’t necessarily remember his name right off the bat, has stepped down this week from two upcoming K-dramas Again My Life and Green Mothers Club. The reason was due to his health problems. A day after the drama departure news, K-ent reported that Lee Kyu Han was being investigated by the police after a taxi driver reported that he assaulted the driver one night after drinking during the drive home. Lee Kyu Han’s agency has denied the assault allegations and says there is more to the story and will follow the police investigation to clear his name. His agency further clarified that his stepping down from the dramas is due to his anxiety and mental health in light of this police investigations. I hope the investigation gets sorted out and honestly I wish people can drink and just be happy goofy drunks instead of potentially belligerent ones.
after leaving agency, again?
Aww such an understanding, forgiving tone against a potential drunken batterer/ physical assault-er. Love it!
He is probably being blackmailed because of the incident.
Probably. Makes me think that agencies have a lot of dirt on their actors that they can use as blackmail if necessary.
tone is very different here for a drunk assault that could of brought harm to someone versus kim seon ho who him and his partner made a decision together lol
I didn’t know that koala would ignore Dispatch’s revealations about Kim Seon Ho’s ‘scandal’ because she was such a fangirl.?
Honestly I didn’t care about this KSH guy untill a few days ago but if Dispatch’s report is true then he is victim of dating violenece, illegal filming, slandering, witch-hunt etc.
Surprisingly koala(and many other sites) was verbose when this scandal came into light but all of them are practicing ‘nobel silence’ as soon as the table turned and now fingers are pointed in another direction.
A follow up article will do as long as koala doesn’t want to come across as a misandrist jerk.
