VICTON to continue as 5 members after Heochan caught drunk driving


VICTON are continuing on as a 5-member group following Heochan's DUI.

On September 22, VICTON's label IST Entertainment confirmed Heochan was caught driving drunk by police on the morning of the 20th. The label said, "After the investigation, he is expected to be subject to the cancellation of his license... Currently, Heochan is deeply regretful and deeply remorseful for making a mistake he should never have made. He also cannot help but feel sorry to fans and many officials for causing this issue. Heochan plans to suspend his team and individual activities after today."

Heochan also apologized on Instagram, stating, "I feel the pain and disappointment I've caused you from this incident, and I repent deeply. I will bear in mind all the accusations and rebukes for this irreversible behavior and live with deep reflection to become a person who is not ashamed of himself in the future."

IST Entertainment further confirmed VICTON will be promoting as 5 members, including their upcoming fan concert '2022 VICTON Fan Concert Chronicle' scheduled for October 15-16.

I've been following Victon since their debut so this is really disappointing. I have to say, though, I appreciate the fact that the company released a statement before any news outlets could come in with their "Idol ABCDEFG caught drunk driving," which in that case we'd just have a bunch of baseless speculations on who it is.

When they speak of suspending activities, I wonder if they mean he's leaving the team forever or if he's just going on a hiatus, it's very unclear in the statement. Anyhow, drunk driving is not a joke and should always be treated as the serious crime it is. You're not only risking your own life, but also innocent people's lives.

I know it’s “easy to judge” but I genuinely have no respect or sympathy for drunk drivers / what happens to them. Literally hundreds of innocent people die because drunk drivers are too narcissistic to order a fucking Uber/Lyft. Especially when you’re a public figure. It’s incredibly stupid and selfish and I’m glad his company took accountability because I know others that would / have covered it up
