Singer and actor Kim Hyun-joong has been caught drunk driving, police in Gangnam said Thursday.
The star, who recently completed his mandatory military service after a messy legal dispute with an ex-girlfriend, apparently fell asleep in his BMW as it waited at a traffic light in southern Seoul early Sunday morning.
The driver of the car behind called the police when Kim's car did not move as the light turned green. Kim was fast asleep when police arrived to check on him. Police woke him up and breathalyzed him on the spot.
His blood alcohol level at the time was 0.075 percent, which automatically suspends his driver's license. The following day, Kim appeared at the police station and admitted to drinking a liter of beer.
