It was later revealed that the owner of the Rolls-Royce was Kim Min Jong, who was extremely popular as both an actor and a singer.

On September 5, Kim Min Jong commented on the Rolls-Royce accident.

The driver who caused the accident contacted me. It wasn’t a big deal, and since they are a fellow resident in the neighborhood, I took care of the repairs. Anyway, it ended well.

He also expressed his surprise that his simple act of kindness became such big news.

I’m flustered that this became such a big topic without any particular reason. I don’t have any particular thoughts on it; I handled it this way because we’re neighbors. I didn’t expect to receive this much attention.

Netizens who came across Kim Min Jong’s story praised him as noble. Rolls-Royce cars are often seen as vehicles that people should avoid getting into an accident with because of their high cost and the expensive repair bills for their high-end car parts. Therefore, netizens reacted even more positively to Kim Min Jong’s actions, commenting that they would be grateful if this happened to them, too. Some were glad to hear such a “heartwarming story amidst the gloomy news these days.

Kim Min Jong left SM Entertainment in June of this year after first signing with the company in 2006.
