Hongki shoots a sharp answer back at netizen who reported him for a traffic violation

Posted: 12 Apr 2013 09:12 AM PDT

Hongki answered back against a netizen who reported him for a traffic violation.

On April 11, Hongki had snapped a photo with his new scooter on Twitter and wrote, “Puhehehehe my new friend!!!! The color is of course going to be yellow“. However, a few people noticed that in the photo, the scooter was lacking a license plate.

Soon enough, a post was made online titled, “I reported F.T. Island‘s Lee Hongki for violating proper vehicle management and street traffic laws.” The netizen pointed out that he had no license plate on the scooter and said, “He broke the vehicle management laws. Since he drove the scooter without a license plate, I reported him to the Seoul Police Department Traffic Control Safety Division.” He explained that according to the new laws since 2011, even small two-wheeled vehicles with less than a 50 cc tank must be driven with a license plate.

However, Hongki had his own thoughts on the issue. He tweeted, “Hey, you keyboard finger warriors. If you’re going to insult me, do it after you conduct proper research. I bought it yesterday, so of course I didn’t receive the license plate yet. If you put apply for a license and put it on within 15 days, it’s okay. And you might not be able to tell because it’s dark. Even though it’s in front of a red light, the scooter was parked in front of the store^^. Anyway, you lunge on with your life“.

In a phone call with Sports Seoul, his label said, “We haven’t heard that he was reported yet. He just snapped a photo because he wanted to show the new scooter he bought to his fans. Hongki is currently in Beijing for the Asia tour.
