The police booked him for offering to bribe a police officer 2 million won (approx. $1,777) at the scene in an attempt to cover up his drunk driving incident. A source from the police explained the decision,
“We’ve booked Choi Jong Hoon for now because we received a testimony by the officer that he was willing to offer him a bribe. The police officer has reportedly announced his intention to reject his offer.”
