According to reports, the actress apologized for being tardy but was too drunk to keep her eyes open properly. When asked if she was feeling okay, Kim Ji Soo said she had a long night out the day before but was fine.

“Yes, [I’m intoxicated]. Does that upset you? I can still respond, so go ahead and ask. Our dinner yesterday ended late. We ended up drinking until late in the night while talking about our hardships.”

After only ten minutes, the interview was stopped, and a manager led the star out. Shortly after, the actress issued an apology, expressing regret for her actions. This was also not her first drinking-related issue — in 2000 and 2010, the actress got into car accidents while driving under the influence.
