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 supported him on PD101 but drinking under the influence is a stupid and unforgivable thing to do. In my country, drunk driving recently caused an even bigger uproar bcs a drunk driver killed a man on a motorbike who was delivering his wife's catering food, leaving her widowed with their children to care for and these people are not rich. He should be glad for the rest of his life that he didn't injure or kill anybody. This is one of the single most stupidest thing you can do as a grown adult.
