Comedian No Hong-chul — who was caught drunk driving Nov. 7 by Gangnam police in Seoul — was found to have a blood-alcohol level of 0.1 percent according to test results by the forensic service, Yonhap reported.

Police said Friday that the 35-year-old’s blood-alcohol level was 0.105 percent, for which his drivers license may be revoked. The case will be sent to the prosecutor’s office, police said.

No is also subject to a fine ranging from $3,000 to $5,000 according to law, police said.

Police said the “Infinite Challenge” star refused to take a breathalyzer test after being stopped by police around 11:55 p.m. Nov. 7, requesting instead for a more accurate blood test sent to Korea’s National Forensic Service.

No has since stepped down from the program, as well as “I Live Alone,” on which he is a host.

“I apologize again for my immature actions, which caused a stir. In this situation, I have no excuses even if I had 10 mouths,” he tweeted Friday.

He denied refusing to take the breathalyzer.

“It’s true that I hesitated after being asked to take the breathalyzer, as I was unfamiliar with the situation, but I followed the police’s instructions to the best of my abilities because I knew I’d done the wrong thing of driving drunk,” No said on Twitter. “The reason I chose the second test over the breathalyzer is that, after hearing the description from the police officer about the tests, I discussed my options with my manager and chose the blood test.”

“I know all of this is my fault for driving drunk, and I am self-reflecting,” he said. “I won’t refuse or try to make excuses for whatever reprimands and punishments that may come in the future.”
