Kwak Do-won, a South Korean actor known for starring in action movie blockbuster "Steel Rain," was caught drunk driving in the southern resort island of Jeju on Sunday, police said.
According to the police, Kwak was awakened and followed the police officers’ instructions and underwent a breathalyzer test, which showed that his blood alcohol level was 0.08 percent — which warrants his driver’s license to be revoked.
The actor reportedly told police officers that he had driven approximately 10 kilometers (6 miles) from Hallip-eup to Aewol-eup.
“Fortunately, it did not lead to any accidents,” said the police. “He will be called in again later for further investigation of details.”
Kwak’s agency Mada Entertainment also issued a statement on Sunday.
“We give our sincerest apologies that such disgraceful thing happened,” the agency stated. “Regardless of the reason, Kwak and the agency feel heavy responsibility. We are sorry for causing concern to those who have been supporting Kwak, and apologize once again for causing trouble.”
