Lizzy, a member of the Koren Pop group After School, has been sentenced to a year in prison by a Seoul Central District Court.
According to reports on Korean news portals, the singer appeared before the court for her first DUI trial on Monday morning, September 27. Lizzy reportedly admitted to her mistake and apologized for the same. The prosecution, on the other hand, pleaded for the star to be sentenced to a year in prison.

Back in May, Lizzy rammed her car into a taxi while driving under the influence of alcohol. Although there were no major injuries in the accident, it was reported that the star’s blood alcohol concentration levels were high enough for her license to be revoked.

In her statement to the court, Lizzy apologised to the taxi driver and stated that she vouched that she will never be involved in any such incident again.
“I apologize to the taxi driver and to the general public who could have fallen as a victim of my hasty decision. I have been advocating against driving under the influence and yet I have done the very wrong thing due to my ill-advised decision at the moment. I promise that this wouldn’t happen again ever in my life. I will not let anybody down from this point onward, including myself. I was afraid of myself but coming here for the trial was more terrifying,” read a statement on allkpop.com.

Lizzy was indicted on the charges of dangerous driving under the ‘Additional Punishment Law on Specific Crimes’ and violating the ‘Road Traffic Act’ with her DUI.
