R.ef‘˜s Lee Sung Wook has had his licence suspended for 100 days after driving his car out of a carpark while drunk.According to a report on Segye Ilbo, Lee Sung Wook didn’t actually mean to drive himself, but is facing a hold on his license for 100 days anyway due to the fact that he did get the car out of the parking garage himself.Lee Sung Wook’s camp stated, “It is true Lee Sung Wook drank yesterday (Mar 20). However, he had called a substitute driver to come drive for him, but the substitute driver was unable to find the location of the car, and so, Lee Sung Wook drove it out from the parking lot for the substitute.‘They added, “As he had already called the substitute driver, he didn’t plan on driving at all, but it is considered to be a DUI if you get in the car and have it move more than 5 meters. Due to that law, he will be facing license suspension for 100 days.‘Lee Sung Wook made a comeback with R.ef after an eight year hiatus toward the end of 2012, but the group’s promotions took a dive when news of a physical fight taking place between Lee Sung Wook and his ex-wife broke out.A spate of incidents has landed a number of K-pop names in hot soup with the authorities lately.Kara's Kang Ji Young uploaded on her Twitter account a picture showing her with her head hanging outside the window of a running car. The photo brought a great deal of flak from her fans onto her head for the reckless act.Meanwhile, A Pink’s Jung Eun Ji was also censured for dangling a plastic bag full of tangerines out of the window of a moving car to chill them. She had taken a picture of the act and posted it on her official me2day account along with the message, “I wanted to have some tangerines, but they were hot because they were on the car’s engine before. So I decided to give some fresh air to these tangerines.‘Big Bang's G Dragon also recently upset fans by posting a picture of a flower folded out of Korean money online.
