According to an exclusive report from Ilgan Sports, Kang Jiyoung was injured after being the victim of a car accident caused by a drunk driver on the night of April 1. She was returning home from filming her Korean comeback drama Late Night Snack Man and Woman.

It is true Kang Jiyoung was in a car accident. The perpetrator was under the influence of alcohol. For the near future, we will be visiting the hospital and watching her health and condition before returning to the filming location.
