An official from Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency said Thursday that the prosecutor in charge indicted Nichkhun as summary offense for a fine of four million Korean won [approximately $3,530] after driving under the influence of alcohol, according to Korea's entertainment news agency STARNEWS' report on August 30.
“Nichkhun’s blood alcohol level was not that high and he is in agreement with the victim whose injury was not so severe,” the official reportedly said in the news.
“For the aforementioned reasons and similar cases in the past, we've decided to make this suspension. The victim also doesn’t want Nichkhun’s punishment,” the prosecutor added.
On July 24, Nichkhun hit a motorcycle in southern Seoul while driving with a blood alcohol level of 0.056 percent, which resulted in the suspension of his driver's license.
Nichkhun and the motorcyclist came to an agreement on July 31 and the 25-year-old star visited a police station to get detailed investigations on August 2.
A PR rep from his agency JYP Entertainment told the magazine Friday that the singer is still spending time alone for self-restraint.
In the meantime, Nichkhun has stopped attending all activities as a member of 2PM after the accident including the firm's joint concert, "JYP Nation," which was held in Seoul on August 4 and in Tokyo, Japan on 18 and 19.
