Ha Jung Woo previously told a story during his appearance on SBS’s “Healing Camp” about how he caught someone committing a hit-and-run.
He said, “I was walking home after work and was hit by a car. The car ran away after hitting me.” Using the physical endurance he had built up for a shoot along with his knowledge of the neighborhood, he predicted the driver’s route and ran after them.

Vicky took a more hands-on approach to catching a criminal. During her appearance on MBC every1’s “Video Star,” the Diva member talked about how she heard a man and woman fighting next door during her girl group promotions.

While trying to escape by climbing a wall as Vicky chased after him, he was arrested when police arrived at the scene.
