As if getting a suspended license for being drunk and asleep behind the wheel of his own car wasn't bad enough, Kim Hyun Joong is now in more hot water, as the official statement from his management company and the CCTV footage that's surfaced from the scene of the incident tells two completely different stories.

This latest drunk driving incident involving Kim Hyun Joong is either going to go away, or it's going to linger for the star actor who can't seem to get himself out of trouble. Recently released from his obligatory military service, the 30-year-old has not had a smooth transition back to celebrity life. On the night of March 26th at around 2AM, Kim was found by police to be sleeping at the wheel of his vehicle at an intersection. Besides being exhausted, the actor's blood alcohol level was above the legal limit, and he had his license suspended. 

Right away, his management company, KeyEast Entertainment, released a statement, more or less excusing the star for his actions and making claims that he actually wasn't really driving that far. Unfortunately for them, there are cameras placed everywhere these days, and Kim Hyun Joong's vehicle was seen a lot further away from where he started driving than where his handlers said he was. KeyEast Entertainment tried to sweep everything under the rug, but now they just got called out, and things now are definitely not in their favor.

On the bright side, no one got hurt during Kim's attempt at a drunken and exhausted drive home. Because drunk driving is really about the stupidest thing anyone can do. He's hopefully learned his lesson, and so have the folks at his management company, who may now think twice before they make up phony excuses for their talents' behavior.
