Things are not looking pretty good for K-pop group AB6IX (에이비식스).
Earlier today (Thursday, 4th May), it was announced that the quintet’s long-awaited comeback will be postponed for a couple of weeks. This came after team leader Lim Young Min (임영민) was caught driving under influence.
The group’s label Brand New Music released a statement that reads, “In the early morning of 31st May, Lim Young Min attended a personal gathering with acquaintances and had a drinking session. He then drove himself home, before being detained by the police. He was charged with drunk driving and as a result, Young Min’s license has been revoked.”
The agency added, “Lim Youngmin is currently reflecting on his actions deeply and will be participating in any further police investigations, if necessary. He will halt all of his activities as a member of AB6IX. The group will be carrying out all future schedules as a 4-member group as of now.”
AB6IX was originally scheduled to drop their 2nd mini album “VIVID” on 8th June. They also released a series of photos and teasers for their much-anticipated return to the K-pop scene. According to the entertainment company, the album release will be delayed to 29th June.
