Amid the constant criticism that celebrities use private ambulances for their personal schedules, suspicions have been raised that a famous folk group singer took a private ambulance to the concert hall.
Yesterday, a media reported that member A of a famous folk group took a private ambulance from a wedding hall in Cheongju, North Chungcheong Province to an outdoor concert hall in Namyangju, Gyeonggi Province on the 30th of last month.
It was a weekend at the time, so it was usually about 3 hours, considering the highway conditions due to traffic jams.
It took less than two hours by using a private ambulance, which raised suspicions that some took an ambulance to move quickly.
A’s side claimed that he was attending a wedding of an acquaintance, but his condition deteriorated, such as high blood pressure, so he decided to take a private ambulance to a large hospital in Seoul, but his condition improved on the way and he changed the destination to a concert hall.
The Ministry of Health and Welfare and the local government are investigating the exact circumstances of the incident against the ambulance company where Mr. A was riding.
If you use a private ambulance for private purposes, you may be sentenced to up to one year in prison or a fine of up to 10 million won.
