On July 26, the group’s agency, JYP Entertainment, said, “Nichkhun said that he is deeply sorry for his mistake and wants to apologize to the public, who have loved and supported him for the past five years, and Korea, where he felt like a family member.”
“Nichkhun wants to take some personal time for self reflection and will appear in front of the public to re-start himself with a fresh mind. Therefore, he will not appear at ‘JYP Nation,’ which will be held next month in Korea and Japan, and ‘JYP Fans’ Day.’ We are currently rearranging his future schedules.”

Nichkhun was driving his personal vehicle on July 24 and was involved in an accident with a motorcycle after drinking two cups of beer with other JYP artists. He was driving with a blood alcohol level of 0.056 percent, which led to the revocation of his driver’s license.
On July 26, Nichkhun tweeted in English, “I would like to write this letter of apology for such an irresponsible act. I have betrayed the ones who have given me their love and support. I will never again repeat the same mistake. I am truly ashamed that I have disappointed so many, and I am deeply sorry.”
