Damn. Glad no one was hurt, much worse could've happened. Props to Brand New Music for handling things quickly and being open about it rather than trying to hide it. I hope he learned his lesson and take some time to reflect.

I was really looking forward to this comeback too. I really feel bad for the other members who now to have to do even more work because of Youngmin. Disappointed. Hats off to Brand New Music for taking the matter seriously. I know that people make mistakes and I hope this a wake up call to Youngmin to take drinking and driving seriously.
