Members of 2PM talked about Nichkhun‘s drunk driving scandal.
On their comeback special ‘2PM Returns‘, which was aired on MBC recently, Nichkhun was asked about his drunk driving incident that took place last year. He said, “I’ll never forget that day, I thought that I wasn’t human. I was so sorry to my fans and the members, I cried in front of them for the first time. I’m a foreigner, yet my fans accept me and pour out their love for me. But I felt like I betrayed and disappointed them. All I kept thinking about was how much my fans must be hurting.”
Taecyeon then said, “We had never taken a break after our debut. But after that, all of our schedules were gone. We were initially asked, ‘How about promoting without Nichkhun?’ But it doesn’t make sense to come back as a five-member group.”
“There were talks about possibly promoting as a subunit. But we all rejected the offer. We want to come back as six members,” Jun.K revealed.
Chansung added “Even though it was a mistake, wrongdoing is wrongdoing, we might think badly on them for making a mistake, but at that time, I think that Nichkhun hyung himself was very dear to us.”
At the end, Nichkhun vowed “We’ll work hard to bring back all of the fans that went away.”
On another note, 2PM has recently released their third Korean album ‘Grown‘.
