Popular actress Han Ye-seul
has been booked for an alleged hit-and-run, but strongly denied the allegation, claiming that the accuser has barely been hit by her Porsche.
Han was driving the car to the parking garage in her house in Samseong-dong in southern Seoul when she hit a man, surnamed Doh, 36, with the wing mirror around 9:00 a.m. on May 2, according to her agency, Sidus HQ, on Thursday.
In their official statement, the agency said she bumped against him slightly with her car and she did not mean to flee from the scene.
"The bump was slight to the extent that the wing mirror remained intact without being folded in", the agency said. "Han asked her manager to take care of the incident". He said they called the victim and tried to settle the matter.
But Doh filed a report with the police that she fled the scene after hitting him, the agency said. It has made public footage of a surveillance camera at the scene.
However, the man said he felt really bad as she did not apologize and her agency tried to simply offer him compensation, which he said is the main reason he reported the incident to the police.
He said the actress did not even get out off the car when he fell down after being hit.
"What I wanted was a sincere apology from Han. After hitting me, she was sitting behind the wheel without getting off the car. She just opened her window slightly and looked at me. That was all". He said he won't accept the agency's attempt to settle the case with money.

이어 "한예슬은 도 씨에게 다친 곳은 없는지 확인한 뒤 '죄송하다'고 사과 입장을 전했다".며 "한예슬은 접촉 사고 해결을 위해 매니저에게 연락을 취했다".고 밝혔다.
또한 "한예슬 매니저가 도 씨에게 원만한 합의를 제의한 것으로 알고 있다".며 "그러나 도 씨가 일방적으로 경찰서에 한예슬을 뺑소니로 신고해 뺑소니범으로 몰리게 됐다".고 주장했다.
앞서 4일 서울 강남경찰서에 따르면 한예슬은 지난 2일 오전 8시 30분께 서울 삼성동 주차장에서 도모 씨를 들이받고 뺑소니 한 혐의로 입건됐다.
