It was just revealed that on March 26, Kim Hyun Joong was found asleep at the wheel in a parked car at an intersection, where police determined that his blood alcohol was over the legal limit. And just today, his agency released a statement regarding the situation. So what really happened?

Just released from the military last month, Kim Hyun Joong was apparently hanging out at his friend's house and having a few drinks before the incident. According to his management company KeyEast Entertainment, "Early morning on March 26, Kim Hyun Joong was having a drink with his friends near his house when he was asked to move his car by a parking attendant. Since he was practicing for his concert he had not slept for a few days. He hadn’t even driven for 1km when he was stopped for driving under the influence, got tested and had his license suspended. Regardless of the reason, Kim Hyun Joong understands that it was wrong to get behind the wheel after drinking and is reflecting on his actions. We will be careful so that this doesn’t happen again."

When Kim Hyun Joong's blood alcohol content was tested on the scene, it was 0.075, whereas the legal limit is at 0.003. It's not like he was smashed, but then again, how tolerant the actor is when it comes to alcohol is not known, so who knows? He probably was exhausted as his management claimed, but that's no excuse to be falling asleep in the middle of an intersection. Either way, it's a good thing no one got hurt during the ordeal.

Remember kids, NEVER get behind the wheel if you've had too much to drink.
