I sensed danger, so I avoided the car, [but the driver] suddenly made a rude gesture with his finger,” she said.
“I chased after the driver, and I approached the foreign car that was on standby at a traffic light to knock on the window and ask, ‘Why did you curse at me?’ When I did that, the driver pushed down his hood and only continued to curse at me with his finger. However, I realized he was a very famous idol,” she added.
