Yesong faced charges after her involvement in a late-night crash that resulted in the death of a delivery man in his 50s. The accident, which occurred on the morning of February 3 in Seoul, has drawn severe criticism due to Yesong’s blood alcohol level, which stood at 0.221%, far exceeding the legal limit.

The defense’s argument hinges on a point of contention regarding the road’s layout and the victim’s positioning. They suggested that the tragic outcome might have been avoided had the victim adhered to traffic rules concerning motorcycle lane usage.

This line of reasoning has only fueled public anger, especially in light of the excuse Yeseong provided for her intoxication: the pressures of celebrity life necessitating attendance at a drinking event.

In rebuttal, prosecutors have highlighted evidence from dashcam footage, which clearly depicts DJ Yeseong’s inability to control her vehicle, undermining any claim to her driving competence at the time of the incident. Further complicating Yesong’s situation is the suspicion of her involvement in another hit-and-run merely minutes before the fatal crash.
