Actress Park Si-yeon was booked for drunk driving in broad daylight last weekend.
Her agency Mystic Entertainment said in a statement Tuesday that Park had been drinking at home with a friend on Jan. 16 and drove her car the following day and became involved in a fender bender.
But the accident, at an intersection in Gangnam, occurred at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, by which time she still had a blood-alcohol level of 0.097 percent, enough to revoke her driving license.
The agency said Park "deeply regrets" the incident and apologizes sincerely.
A contestant in the 2000 Miss Korea pageant, Park started her acting career in the TV series "My Girl" in 2005. She has worked steadily since then and in 2015 starred opposite Clive Owen and Morgan Freeman in the Hollywood B-movie "Last Knights."
