Super Junior’s Kangin Receives Sentence For Drunk Driving Case


On September 7, Super Junior’s Kangin attend his final trial regarding his drunk driving case.

Judge Uhm Cheol from Seoul Central District Court stated, “Although the accident resulted in a streetlight falling onto the street and sidewalk, it was enough to affect traffic. Thankfully there were no [human] accidents and only resulted in destruction of property. The fact that he is thoroughly self-reflecting was taken into consideration.”

As a result, Kangin has been fined 7 million won (approximately $6,400).

Previously, Kangin had been drunk driving in the early hours of May 24. He ended up hitting a streetlight in front of a convenience store before fleeing the scene. He later turned himself in to the police and revealed that he had been drinking at a restaurant prior to the accident.

Kangin had a previous drunk driving accident in 2009.
