On Tuesday, June 24th, 2PM’s Nichkhun was involved in a minor accident while under the influence of alcohol. Up until now, the idol has been quiet about the situation, but on July 26th, Nichkhun broke his silence and tweeted an emotional apology to his fans and followers.
Nichkhun (@khunnie0624) tweeted the following message:
I would like to write this letter of apology for such an irresponsible act. To the injured person, his family, the people of Korea, my fans, JYPE family and staffs, 2PM members, and all the people this situation has affected. I have betrayed the ones who have given me their love and support, the love and support I don’t deserve with such behavior. I feel the need to take some time off to re-think about my action and myself, to make myself a better person and never again repeat the same mistake. I am truly ashamed that I have disappointed so many, and I am deeply sorry.
As a result of the incident, Nichkhun has been edited out of a number of 2PM’s promotions and it has been decided that he will stop his activities for the time being. JYP Entertainment stated on July 26th, “Nichkhun said that he is deeply sorry for his mistake and wants to apologize to people, who loved him for the past five years, and Korea, where he felt like a family member.”
They continued, “Nichkhun will have some time to restrain himself and appear in front of the public to re-start himself with a fresh mind. Therefore, he will not appear at the ‘JYP Nation,’ which will be held next month in Korea and Japan, and ‘JYP Fans’ Day‘. We are also rearranging his next schedules.”
The agency added, “We will do our best not to cause any problems for the schedules that we already signed a contract. We are deeply sorry for causing problem regarding our entertainer. We will try harder so that a similar incident will not happen again.”
What do you think of all of this?
