Singer Bobby Kim on Thursday was fined W4 million for molesting a flight attendant and ordered to take 40 hours of sexual harassment education (US$1=W1,112).
Kim was charged with causing a disturbance while intoxicated aboard a Korean Air flight from Incheon to San Francisco on Jan. 7.
He was mistakenly given an economy class seat instead of the business class seat he had reserved, so he was upset and drank six glasses of wine to fall asleep, he told police. But he claimed to have no clear memory of what happened next.
The Incheon District Court said Kim caused a disturbance but not all passengers noticed it so it was unlikely to have been grave. The court also took into consideration that the carrier made a mistake that upset him and that he has no criminal record.
