Nichkhun dissed himself through an 'SNL Korea' skit that brought up his drunk driving incident.

One of the 'SNL Korea' skits featured 2PM members talking to their past selves. Taecyeon told his past self to get used to farming equipment and how to use old style kitchens (referring to 'Three Meals A Day'). When it came to Nichkhun's turn, his past self asked him if he would be able to survive in Korea even though his Korean was not that great. Nichkhun told his past self to learn a bit more Korean, and then said he would get popular soon. When his past self then expressed his desire to buy a car, Nichkhun dove in screaming, "No! No. Don't drive." He then added, "Drink at home. And if you have to drink outside, always call someone else to drive for you."

He then added that if he did make a mistake, he had to reflect upon his actions and the public would eventually forgive him.

Check out the clip above!

Kudos to him: instead of acting like nothing ever happened, he's owning up to a mistake he made in the past and telling himself what he should've done instead. Kangin, sit down and take notes.

Also, this was refreshing to see him diss himself, lol. Idols rarely do that for something this serious.

Top comments from Nate: SNL is the washing machine of celebrities' image +1284,-39Reflecting is a waste if you are going to use it as comedy material +1164, -52Are professional criminals appering on SNL's return? +995, -40I really don't think that he did or said anything wrong in SNL, but shouldn't they know that staying quiet is the best option? How can they let him say it, when they know how fucking crazy Knetz are?!

I don't get people who gets angry about this.. he is owning up to his mistakes and giving good advice about not drinking and driving

"...if he did make a mistake, he had to reflect upon his actions and the public would eventually forgive him." No truer words have been spoken.

I have no idea why South Korea even attempts to do a show like SNL. The original SNL is a satirical comedy show. It makes jokes about politics and culture, almost anything is fair game. Yes, it's been criticized before for going too far but it's also one of the longest running shows on television. It's not for everyone. It's not for the easily offended. It's not about being politically correct. The Korean version of SNL can't be funny because there are way too many taboos, way too many people that don't understand satire. Koreans are way to locked down and way too frightened and indoctrinated by their repressive society to even poke fun at it.

Allkpop thank you for writing this article!! 1) Khun regret DUI the most 2) he didnt diss the fact he hit someone but he dissed his behaviour 3) khun has attained to the mistake he committed and is giving back to the society for his sin 4) what else do u expect from him?? he didnt kill anyone for gods sake.. there are much more sinful people u all adore n praise in ur daily life then y only khun is targeted?? Im proud khun was brave to speak out rather than act like it never happened.. and last when u point a finger at someone remember ur 3 figers are pointing back at u

Does he think drunk driving is something you can just laugh off?

7amdowh Funky_Angel Sunday, September 11, 2016

He was giving an advice to himself and the viewers "Drink at home. And if you have to drink outside, always call someone else to drive for you." so no he doesn't think it's something you laugh off, he is serious enough to bring past controversy.

An_dromeda Funky_Angel Sunday, September 11, 2016

please read it properly... he regrets DUI incident the most in his life.. he is advicing his old self not do the same mistake.. what r u people singing the same old brolen record.. clean ur minds once in a while.. or are u all born judges and or saints?

Sunnn Funky_Angel Monday, September 12, 2016

On the contrary he was out of work for a while after the DUI so I don't think he was laughing then.

MsDee Sunday, September 11, 2016

At least he is brave enough to talk about his mistakes. Unlike some who act as if nothing bad ever happened. He has already apologized before and talked about this before. He has accepted all the hate and judgement. This skit really depends on how a person feels about him. If you like him its ok, if you don't like him its bad.

An_dromeda MsDee Sunday, September 11, 2016

finally a comment which says exactly my thoughts... thank you MsDee

lanterngirl Sunday, September 11, 2016

THIS is the kind of public acknowledgement I want from idols who make mistakes - rather than making empty apologies, they should try and influence others to change, and show how they have improved. I lost tons of respect for him after his DUI, but after cleaning up his act and doing this... he seems like a good example.

SupastarEden Sunday, September 11, 2016

It is all about perspective. There are those that see this as Nickhun apologising in his own way. There are those that will see this as Nickhun as teaching youth not to drink and drive. There are those who are going to see it as - Too little too late, Mr.Hypocrite. For someone who dissed Block B for their Thailand Scandal, even though it was proven to be a HIGHLY edited video - there are those that aren't going to accept this skit. The fact that he has waited SEVERAL years to make an apology, and to do it in a satirical way, isn't going to go down well with everyone who watches this.

MsDee SupastarEden Sunday, September 11, 2016

This is not his first time to apologize. This is also not the first time he talked about it on TV. But this is still an issue after SEVERAL years.

SupastarEden MsDee Sunday, September 11, 2016

Exactly. Perspective. People will either forgive or they won't. And in the world of kpop, people won't forget. People still belittle idols for being caught picking their nose when they debuted at 14, and they are now 42 years old. But I think in this case, the writers made the thing into a joke, and we kind of live in an age and time, where people will either see it for what it is, or be super sensitive to it.

Sunnn SupastarEden Monday, September 12, 2016

If you don't forgive him after he's apologized (which contrary to what your initial comment states is more than once, publicly might I add) then frankly the problem lies with you, not whomever has repented. I don't think he needs affirmation from you to know he's been forgiven. But you know, that's just perspective.

SupastarEden Sunnn Tuesday, September 13, 2016

Sunnn I NEVER SAID HE NEEDED VALIDATION FROM ME. I merely pointed out different perspectives of people who are watching the video. How are you even getting that I made that statement or that I am trying to say that? I even mentioned in my second comment that, we live in a day and age where people with either see the video for what it is or have issues with it. What is wrong with you?

Sunnn SupastarEden Tuesday, September 13, 2016

Absolutely nothing. I wasn't targetting YOU in particular but the lot of you (netizens, people, etc) that actually think that way. You can sit down now.

SupastarEden Sunnn Tuesday, September 13, 2016

You were very much targeting me. Otherwise you would have said "people" not "you. But Kum Bay Ya has been passed, and we are all good. But to simplify my statement for further reference for anyone who is confused by my original statement: The fact of the matter is Netizens are known for not being so forgiving of people when it comes to 'scandals'. I use the term scandal lightly because apparently dating someone is considered 'scandalous'. The point I was making was that because of this mentality, there are those who are going to sensationalise things like this. Netizens are going to drag a person down regardless of whether they have repented for a wrong doing or not, whether the 'fault' occurred today, yesterday or 10 years ago. And that this causes people to look at things like this video with a certain perspective and they run with it.

Sunnn SupastarEden Friday, September 16, 2016

"You" can refer to many people. In no way trying to refuel the fire, just reiterating the fact I meant it in a general sense.
