[Updated] Actress Han Ye Seul Charged with Hit and Run


Star actress Han Ye Seul has been booked and charged with a hit-and-run accident today. According to local news, Han Ye Seul is being accused of being a hit-and-run driver in a crash that occurred in the Samsung-Dong area of Seoul at 8:15 AM on May 2nd. She’s charged with leaving the scene of an accident with personal injuries that is expected to leave the victim injured for two weeks. The actress is scheduled to be investigated by police on Friday. The Korean-American actress has debuted as a model in 2001 and has starred in a number of hit dramas including SBS “Tazza,” KBS “Forbidden Love,” and MBC “Nonstop 4.”

*Update: SidusHQ, Han Ye Seul’s agency, just released an official statement moments ago saying the press reports of her being involved in a hit-and-run is far from the truth. “First of all, the media reports are far from the truth. What actually happened is: On May 2nd, around 9AM, Han Ye Seul was driving back home in the Samsung Dong area. As she entered the parking lot, she very slightly contacted the accuser with her side mirror but it was such a minor accident that it wasn’t going to cause much harm. She immediately apologized and called the security guard, and later contacted her manager to take care of the matter. Later that day, the accuser called her manager and expressed his intention to settle the incident, but without any notification, the accuser charged Han Ye Seul for a hit-and-run accident and reported it to the police.”
