Actress Chae Min-seo busted for drunk-driving

Actress Chae Min-seo has been caught driving under the influence and lost her license. According to Gangnam Police, the entertainer was driving her Mercedes Benz in the residential area of Cheongdam-dong in southern Seoul, when she rammed into a parked vehicle around 10 in the morning on Jan. 30.

When the police arrived on the scene, the star’s alcohol level was reported to be at 0.081 percent, which is enough for a cancellation of a driver’s license. As well as losing her license to use a motor vehicle, the actress is being booked for DUI and causing an accident.

The 30-year old entertainer made her debut in 2002 with the film “Champion” and has starred in other movies such as “Loner” (2008) and “Vegetarian” (2010). She has also starred in the dramas “Romantic Hunter” (2007) and “You Don’t Know Me” (2010).

On the following day the star expressed an apology to fans for the drunk-driving incident.
“I’m so sorry for causing a public disturbance,” said the singer on her personal Cyworld Web site.
