“Bloodhounds” embraces Kim Sae Ron, but viewers can’t bear it
The release date of Netflix’s series “Bloodhounds” was confirmed.
On May 12th, “Bloodhounds” confirmed its release on June 9th. Kim Sae Ron, who caused a drunk driving accident in May last year, will appear in a work after about a year and a month.
On May 18th last year, Kim Sae Ron collided with guardrails and street trees several times while driving drunk in Cheongdam-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul. Her blood alcohol level at that time was measured to be over 0.2%, far exceeding the standard for license revocation (0.08%).
On April 5th, Judge Lee Hwan Ki of the Seoul Central District Court sentenced Kim Sae Ron, who was charged with violating the Road Traffic Act, to a fine of 20 million won.
“Bloodhounds”, which announced the casting lineup in 2021, was a story about three young people who set foot in the world of private loans in pursuit of money and get caught up in a huge force. However, after Kim Sae Ron caused a controversy over drunk driving, the main characters changed from three young people to two young people. When the casting lineup for “Bloodhounds” was announced, Kim Sae Ron heralded her collaboration with Woo Do Hwan and Lee Sang Yi as Hyun Joo, one of the three young people.
However, it was reported that Kim Sae Ron’s appearance was not edited. Netflix said that Kim Sae Ron would appear in “Bloodhounds” with minimum screen time, and that this decision was made because it was impossible to edit the whole story and the role she played.
“Bloodhounds” eventually decided to embrace Kim Sae Ron. However, attention is paid to how this decision will affect the viewers who have to bear it.
