Fans and followers of Korean star Park Min Woo are unhappy that producers have decided to air a segment on 'Roommate' where he dozed off behind the wheel and almost caused an accident.

They are worried that the segment might have negative impact on his image, said

The segment aired on the 13th episode of the series showed a visibly tired Park get behind the driver's seat with a car-full of his co-stars.

Before Park got behind the wheel, he assured his roommates, saying: "Don't worry, we're not going to get into an accident", reported

However, as the journey started, the passengers noticed that he was yawning frequently and got worried.

When one of them, Seo Kang Joon, suggested that he take over the wheel at the rest stop, Park declined.

Despite his reassurances, the car drifted towards the side of the road more than once, and when they tapped Park on the shoulders -- he did not respond, said

Fortunately, he woke up seconds before the car hit the rails at the side of the road.

Additional reports later revealed that Park was driving even though his leg was hurt.

He volunteered because he was the most experienced driver and he didn't want Seo to drive as he was not good enough.

The producers explained to Star News that people should not misunderstand just because of a short clip.
