Seungri wins lawsuit against reporter who claimed he was driving drunk

For whatever reason, a rumor persists that Seungri was driving drunk on the night of his accident back in 2014, this despite the fact that he passed a breathalyzer. A lot of that can be traced back to a reporter who made the accusations, and today that reporter lost a defamation lawsuit.

On August 21, a Seoul Central District Court judge ruled in favor of BIGBANG’s Seungri, who sued a reporter for writing articles that claimed he was drunk driving. According to a legal source, the judge pronounced that the reporter, Mr. Kim, would receive a fine of seven million won (approximately $6,300) for damage compensation.

In the end, the judge ruled in favor of Seungri, saying, “The witness’s testimony may have been dishonest or it could have been an assumption, but Mr. Kim treated it as if it were true and wrote the articles as such.”

This becoming a thing never made a whole lot of sense considering the breathalyzer and all that. The money isn’t important to him, obviously, but it likely is important that the drunk driving stuff goes away.
