Recently, the Thai member of the South Korean boy band 2PM was involved in a DUI car accident. He hit a man on a motorcycle while under the influence of alcohol.
After an official letter of apology from his company JYP Entertainment was released to the press, the singer tweeted the following message on July 26th:
“I would like to write this letter of apology for such an irresponsible act. To the injured person, his family, the people of Korea, my fans, JYPE family and staffs, 2PM members, and all the people this situation has affected. I have betrayed the ones who have given me their love and support, the love and support I don’t deserve with such behavior. I feel the need to take some time off to re-think about my action and myself, to make myself a better person and never again repeat the same mistake. I am truly ashamed that I have disappointed so many, and I am deeply sorry.”
I never condone drinking and driving and I’m torn on this subject. I think hitting and injuring someone was wrong and he should not have gotten behind the wheel drunk. However, what should happen to a person’s career after a DUI accident?
What do you think?
