Choi Min-soo beats up septuagenarian

Korean actor Choi Min-soo (pic) gave in to road rage and beat up a 73-year-old man!

It all started during a traffic jam in the Itaewon area in Seoul. The 46-year-old actor was cussing when the old man named Yoo reprimanded Choi for doing so.

Choi then punched the septuagenarian several times and tried to make a getaway when people recognised him.

The spunky Yoo wouldn't let him go without a fight, so he stood in front of the car to stop the actor from leaving the scene.

Choi didn't care and stomped onto the accelerator and drove for about 200 meters with Yoo hanging onto the hood. Police who were called to the scene stopped the two men.

On Thursday, a very repentant and remorseful Choi held a press conference (pic below) to profusely apologise for the incident. The two men then reached a settlement.

Choi will soon be appearing opposite Hollywood star Robert De Niro in the film called Street of Dreams, a joint project between Korea, Japan and the U.S.

Apologetic: Choi is very sorry about the incident

Choi Min Soo used to be so handsome ... now he looks like a thug!! what he did could've killed the old man ... i would've press a charge if i were the old man (or shouldn't it be the police who should do that?)
