Violation of quarantine rules Choi Jin Hyuk didn’t know it was an illegal business bar. He should self-reflect.
Actor Choi Jin-hyuk expressed his intention to suspend his activities while being caught violating quarantine rules.
On the 8th, the agency G-Tri Creative said, “Choi Jin-hyuk violated the quarantine rules while sitting with an acquaintance on the 6th.”
Choi Jin-hyuk did not know that the bar, which his acquaintance informed him that it was a place that could be operated until 10 p.m., was illegally operated. So I misunderstood that it wouldn’t be a problem to have a seat before 10 p.m., he explained.
He also said, “I was careful to see the outside drinking even before 10 o’clock.” So I was looking for a place to talk quietly and went to the place my acquaintance recommended. However, since it was a bar that should not be operated at the current social distancing stage, it was caught at around 8:20 p.m. for violating quarantine rules, he said.
Finally, “I know that ignorance and misbehavior without properly checking the quarantine rules are really embarrassing and there is no excuse.” In response, I bow my head and apologize, saying, “I will stop all activities and self-reflect,” and announced that he would suspend his activities with an apology.
Earlier, Choi Jin-hyuk was booked by the police on charges of violating the Infectious Disease Prevention Act while staying at an entertainment bar in Samseong-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul at around 8:20 p.m. on the 6th. At that time, 51 people, including Choi Jin-hyuk, customers and hospitality at the business, were caught by the police.
The entertainment bar is known to be completely banned from operating as an entertainment facility subject to collective restrictions in accordance with the fourth stage of social distancing in Seoul.
Meanwhile, Choi Jin-hyuk, who made his debut through KBS Survival Star Audition in 2006, appeared in dramas “Gu Family Book,” “Pride and Prejudice,” “Tunnel,” “The Empress’s Dignity,” “Justice” and “Zombie Detective.”
