This Fourth-Generation Idol Faces 15 Years in Prison for Fatal DUI Accident

On June 11, it was announced that prosecutors are seeking a 15-year jail term for former idol and current DJ Yesong.

The former member of the K-Pop group Instar, who made their debut in 2019, is currently facing trial for causing a deadly accident while driving under the influence.

The devastating event took place when DJ Yesong, who was driving while under the influence, caused two separate accidents. As a result, a delivery driver tragically lost their life. The prosecutors emphasized the severity of her actions and highlighted her lack of remorse.

“Her crimes are heavy, considering how she is still blaming the victim even though the accident resulted in his death. I ask that you sentence the defendant to 15 years in prison and confiscate the keys to her Benz,”stated the prosecutors.

During the court proceedings, DJ Yesong justified her actions by referencing financial constraints and the importance of attending a crucial event.

“At the time, I was experiencing financial hardship due to the lack of bookings. I was at an important gathering that had my livelihood at stake, and I couldn’t refuse to drink. This led me to make an unexcusable mistake that caused unerasable pain to the victim. I am reflecting deeply,”Yesong testified.

The sentencing for DJ Yesong, a former K-Pop idol, is set to take place on July 7. The case has garnered considerable interest due to the gravity of the charges against her and her previous fame in the music industry. Meanwhile, Yeseong, who now works as a DJ, is facing backlash after being involved in a deadly DUI accident that claimed the life of a single father. The public’s anger has heightened as doubts arise about the sincerity of her apology statement.

Yeseong’s mother conveyed her apology, falsely stating that Yeseong lost her father at a young age. However, investigations have revealed that Yeseong’s father is actually alive. Yeseong’s mother explained that this was a result of a “miscommunication”and clarified that she had raised Yeseong alone from the age of three, but did not mention her husband’s death.

Moreover, Yeseong is still being held by the police because her blood alcohol level was found to be high and she was accused of being uncooperative at the scene.
