According to Soompi, South Korea’s top broadcasting companies, SBS and KBS, have announced their plans for the star’s scheduled appearances on their upcoming television and radio broadcasts.
“Kangin was supposed to appear on ‘Law of the Jungle’ alongside member Leeteuk in about 2 weeks. As it is difficult for us to reshoot our program, we will be editing his parts out as much as possible,” said an SBS official.
As for KBS, a representative told X Sports News that the idol’s appearances as a special DJ for “Super Junior’s Kiss The Radio” (SUKIRA, 슈키라) programme, which is usually hosted by Leeteuk, will be replaced by BTOB’s Eunkwang, Changsub, and SHINee’s Onew from 24th to 26th May.

Aside from the programme cancellations, fans are blasting the SM artiste’s social media with some extremely hateful comments.
“Will you only stop after you’ve hurt someone? Please don’t be a handicap to the team and withdraw from Super Junior. I hope the police and courts won’t let you off easy just because you’re a celebrity and clout you with a proper sentence,” wrote one netizen on Kangin’s Instagram.
Meanwhile, some fans defended him and wrote encouraging words. One fan said, “Be strong… Everything will be fine.”
But will everything be fine?
On Tuesday, the surveillance camera footage showing the Super Junior member’s 2nd DUI accident was revealed on television. From the short footage, the singer can be seen hitting the lamppost and escaping from the crime scene.
Watch the news video below:
The idol star is currently under investigation for driving under the influence of alcohol aka DUI (Driving Under Influence). SM Entertainment confirmed the investigation and announced his temporary hiatus through an official statement on Tuesday.
If you asked us, running away from your problems will only make matters worse. We hope that you’ll be a better person after this incident, Kangin!
