A succession of 160-word messages were posted on Twitter by idol star and Super Junior member, Siwon. These tweets were pertaining to the accident involving Nichkhun of 2PM.
“A few days ago korean idol group 2PM member Nichkhun was involved in a traffic accident while drinking and driving which is an absolutely illegal action. To this point Nickhun should regret and refrain from committing such actions ever again. I believe he is examining himself more because of this accident. Nickhun is a symbol of the Thai dream of success and has significance for both Korea and Thailand. Let us give him time to reflect from which he will emerge a better and reborn person. Thank you,” tweeted Siwon in English.
Nichkhun, known for his sweet and boy-next-door image, is currently in hot water for hitting a motorcyclist. It was later revealed that he was driving under influence, and was on his way home after a company gathering.
Following this incident, Nichkhun received all sorts of criticism from fans, anti-fans, netizens, and the press. Endorsements, TV appearances, and activities are currently on hold for the Thai K-pop star.
