Super Junior’s Choi Siwon Asks for Self-Reflection Time for Nichkhun
With 2PM Nichkhun’s DUI case spiraling out of control with angry netizens and contrasting rumors, Super Junior’s Choi Siwon asked the public to give Nichkhun some time.
“A few days ago, Korean idol group 2PM member Nichkhun was involved in a traffic accident while drinking and driving which is an absolutely illegal action.
To this point Nichkhun should regret and refrain from committing such actions ever again. I believe he is examining himself more because of this accident.
Nichkhun is a symbol of the Thai drama of success and has significance for both Korea and Thailand.
Let us give him time to reflect from which he will emerge a better and reborn person. Thank you.”
Following the tweets, netizens were split in opinion. Those favoring Choi Siwon’s actions said, “Choi Siwon himself can get flamed for this, so for him to post something like is very brave” and “he must have been worried about his friend.” However, others commented, “Choi Siwon has more than 2 million followers. He shouldn’t have written this at a sensitive time like this” and “Sometimes, staying still helps.”
On July 24, Nichkhun was involved in an accident with a motorcyclist while driving under the influence. Since the accident occurred, Nichkhun and JYP Entertainment have apologized and have decided for Nichkhun to take some time off to self-reflect.
