Kim Sae Ron has apologized through her agency after her recent DUI (driving under the influence) incident.
On May 19, Kim Sae Ron’s agency GOLDMEDALIST Entertainment released the following statement:
“Hello. This is GOLDMEDALIST Entertainment.

1. So she’s not gonna come out on her own to apologize?
2. But she didn’t apologize???? That’s just her company’s statement. She didn’t even say how they were gonna compensate the merchants and repair the public infrastructures
3. The company is impressive, they are even apologizing for herㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
4. No but how old is she now? Why isn’t she apologizing for herself?
5. She didn’t even try to comply at the scene of the incident and just ran away since she was gonna get caught by the police. Seeing how she’s suddenly gonna reflect doesn’t match up
6. They should’ve released this yesterday and she should’ve apologized herself today. That would’ve been more normal. Yesterday, her thug company released their statement and they are releasing this again today?
7. Don’t ever come back
8. It’s not like Kim Saeron was some in-demand celebrity either so there’s no need to say things like “I’ll repay you through my acting”… Let’s just retire nicely ^^
9. And how is she gonna pay back the damages?ㅋㅋㅋㅋ it’s funny how she’s not the one apologizing too
10. Should’ve admitted quicker
11. She’s reflecting now? She ran into the transformer and ran away, denied testing her alcohol level, demanded to get a blood test… she should reflect on her character
12. That’s not what she thinks, she should come out and apologize for herself
13. Since she’s not thinking about repaying us with good acting, let’s just not come out anymore..
14. DUI, property damage, hit-and-run, escape.. she has them all
15. We don’t need her reflection. Just don’t come out of broadcast anymore
