On April 18, the Intellectual Crime Division of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency stated that they found no evidence of Choi Jong Hoon ’s drunk driving incident from 2016 being intentionally blocked from being covered by the press. Choi Jong Hoon previously admitted to offering a bribe to a police officer by telling him, “I’ll give you 2 million won (approximately $1,762), so let this slide,” when he was caught drunk driving.
