Actress Chae Min Seo has received her sentence for an accident caused by her drunk driving.
On October 19, Chae Min Seo was sentenced to eight months in prison, suspended for two years of probation. She is also required to receive 40 hours of defensive driving class and 120 hours of community service.
The sentence comes after the actress hit a stopped vehicle while driving down a one-way street in Gangnam District in an intoxicated state on March 26 at 6:54 a.m. KST. The driver of the car received injuries that required two weeks to heal. At the time, Chae Min Seo’s blood alcohol content level read 0.063 percent, which is grounds for license suspension.
The court stated, “The defendant already has three priors for drunk driving and has not received forgiveness from the victim.” However, they continued, “The victim’s car was in a stopped state and the defendant was driving at a slow speed, so the damage from the accident was minimal. We also took into account the fact that the defendant’s blood alcohol content level was not very high.”
Chae Min Seo most recently starred in the 2016 film “Camping.” Her last drama appearance was in SBS’s “You Don’t Know Women” in 2010.
