“Hello, I’m Kim Sae Ron.
I’m sorry to inform you of my position this late after taking care of the accident and damage situation first. Yesterday, on May 18th, I had an accident in Gangnam at around 8 a.m. At that time, I made a big mistake while being drunk.
My wrong judgment and behavior have caused damage to so many merchants, citizens, and workers at nearby shopping malls who have to restore the damaged structures.
I should have acted more carefully and responsibly, but I couldn’t. I sincerely apologize. We are currently organizing the damage caused by the accident with the company, and we will do our best to communicate and actively resolve everything until the end.
Also, I am very sorry to my fellow actors, staff, and the production staff of the work I was filming and preparing. Once again, I apologize deeply and apologize for the trouble I have caused.
There is no excuse for this disgraceful incident, and I am disappointed and ashamed of myself for what I have done. I will deeply reflect on myself so that this will not happen again. I’m sorry.”
