Kang Ji Young, former member of KARA, got involved in a car accident.
According to The Daily Sports, Kang Ji Young was involved in a car accident while returning home in the early morning after filming her new drama, Late Night Snack Man and Woman (literal translation) on April 1.
The person who caused the accident allegedly violated the traffic signals while being intoxicated and crashed into a vehicle that Kang Ji Young and her staff were on. The accident left Kang Ji Young with minor injuries. She is currently out of the hospital, but she will have to receive hospital treatments continuously. Also, it will be difficult for her to return to the filming site for the time being.
KEYEAST, her agency, confirmed that she was in fact involved in a car accident. “The assailant was under the influence of alcohol. We are going to visit the hospital for a while and watch her condition before returning to the set.”
Kang Ji Young has been working in Japan ever since KARA’s disbandment, and has chosen Late Night Snack Man and Woman as her return to Korea. The drama is a romantic comedy drama, starring Jung Il Woo and Kang Ji Young.
