According to Kyung Hyang Shinmun, the judge explained their decision for the ruling.

She testified that after the accident, she asked people if she looked drunk. She didn’t try to salvage the situation and didn’t call the police. She left the scene without any explanation. The defendant offered ₩5.00 million KRW (about $3,610 USD) to the victim to settle but it was refused. The defendant then submitted a request for leniency with the victim’s family, but the court took into account the fact that the victim had died and could not relay his wishes.
