Kang Ji Hwan‘s past interview about drinking alcohol and blacking out has been resurfacing in light of his arrest.
In 2009, Kang Ji Hwan filmed the movie 7th Grade Civil Servant with Kim Ha Neul. During an interview for the movie, he revealed his “drinking style” and confessed that he drinks all night until he blacks out.
I usually drink all night. I drink until I black out. One time, I couldn’t remember anything the next day and I was even getting cold sweats.
