On July 24, SBS TV’s SBS 8 News reported about Nichkhun’s statement. Nichkhun only said, “I’m sorry,” in his statement. This is because Nichkhun is not good at writing Korean although he’s good at speaking. Nichkhun’s nationality is Thai.
Nichkhun crashed into a motorcycle while driving under the influence on July 24 at around 2:45 a.m. The Gangnam Police Station indicted him without detention for driving under the influence.
According to JYP Entertainment, Nichkhun’s agency, Nichkhun drank about two glasses of beer while having dinner with all the artists from JYP after practicing for a concert with them. The accident occurred while he was driving back to his place, which was located in the same block. The concentration of alcohol in his blood was 0.056%, and Nichkhun got a license suspension.
JYP Entertainment says, “If a further investigation is needed, we’ll fully cooperate. We apologize again.”
The artists from JYP were going to perform together at the 2012 JYP Nation Concert, which was scheduled to be held at the Gymnastics Arena in Olympic Park on August 4. However, it’s now uncertain if Nichkhun can participate in the concert.
