Singer-actor Lee Roo (Cho Sung Hyun, 39 years old) will withdraw from the cast of KBS 2TV’s daily series “A Secret Woman”.
A drama official said to JTBC Entertainment News on December 20th, “Production company officials and staff already received news about Lee Roo’s drunk driving allegation. They are taking this part seriously and have decided on the actor’s drop-out since the first shoot has not been carried out yet.”
“A Secret Woman”, which is scheduled to air next year, has only progressed to the script reading stage.
According to the Seoul Yongsan Police Station, Lee Roo hit a guardrail on the right near Hannam Bridge and Dongho Bridge in Guri, Gangbyeonbuk-ro at 11:25 p.m. on December 19th. Immediately after the accident, the police took a blood alcohol concentration check on Lee Roo and the result came out to be around 0.03%~0.08%, which is equivalent to the level for license suspension.
The accident damaged not only Lee Roo’s vehicle but also road boundary stones. Lee Roo was with other passengers at the time of the accident and there were no casualties. The police will soon summon Lee Roo for investigation.
