Reason why idols drunk driving shouldn’t be taken lightly

Idols and celebrities drunk driving hasn’t been new in the industry. Yesterday, we reported that male idol group Supernova member Yoon Sungmo was rested while leading police to a wild drunk car chase. Although drunk driving is taken lightly and often forgiven by their fans as they protect their biases, some think otherwise.

Originally posted on Pann, netizens are furious at recent incident involving a drunk driver that resulted in deaths of a wife and a child.

“So that… my daughter won’t be forgotten..”

The drunk driver literally ruined a happy family but he only got sentenced for 4 years?

Does this make f*cking sense?

Our Korean laws are f*cking bullsh*t.

His wife and daughter died…. How is he going to live…

Our district attorney and judge mother f*ckers.. really…

Would they give only 4 years if their family members were involved???????

[ +480 / -18] I’m a law student. I just got in to a law school. I will become a judge and become a person who gives fair decisions that are seen obvious by others. I will show that justice still exists in South Korea. I will try to make decisions so that people won’t suffer from decisions like this.
