Uh oh, it looks like Jungkook (전정국) was involved in a car accident over the weekend, 2nd November to be exact.
The Seoul Yongsan Precinct revealed that 22-year-old K-pop star broke an unspecified traffic law and the police are currently investigating the case.
The BTS member was driving his Benz in Yongsan’s Hannam when he crashed into a taxi. Thankfully, both Jungkook and the taxi driver were not seriously injured and were treated at a hospital for their minor injuries.
Big Hit Entertainment has since released a statement in regards to the incident:
“This is a statement regarding member Jungkook’s car accident.
The police have not closed this case yet, so we cannot reveal the exact details, but Jungkook was driving his car last week when he had a minor collision with another vehicle due to his own mistake.
Both the victim and Jungkook did not sustain any major injuries.
Jungkook admitted that he violated the road Traffic Act immediately after the accident. The scene of the accident was resolved and police questioning was completed according to the due process, and an amicable settlement was made with the victim afterwards.
We once again apologise to the victim, and we also express apologies for causing concern to fans. Thank you.”
According to Naver, Jungkook has admitted to his faults. He will cooperate with investigations and has reportedly settled with the victim.
Many ARMYs have praised the idol for owning up to his mistake and are glad that there were no serious injuries.
