Jungkook from BTS Was Involved in a Car Crash in South Korea

Jungkook has reportedly admitted fault in a car accident he was involved in over the weekend and now he is being investigated by authorities in South Korea.

The 22-year-old singer BTS was involved in an accident with a taxi driver after he allegedly violated traffic laws, according to USA Today.

Big Hit Entertainment, the agency behind BTS, released a statement saying, “We apologize again to the victim and also to fans for causing concern.”

Jungkook was booked by Seoul police and his case is being investigated. While he and the other driver both sustained minor injuries, no serious injury was caused. A settlement has already been reached between the two parties.

Authorities say that drunk driving was not a factor in the accident.

BTS Members Ring in Jimin's 24th Birthday - See Their Tweets!

BTS Members Ring in Jimin's 24th Birthday - See Their Tweets!

Happy birthday, Jimin!

The BTS member turns 24 years old today (it’s October 13 in Korea), and his bandmates are joining the rest of the ARMY in celebrating his special day.

Jin tweeted a handwritten note (below), jokingly captioning it, “Jimin-ah, happy birthday, I wrote this for a period of three hours.” His handwritten note read simply, “Jimin, Happy Birthday! – Jin Hyung.”

Suga wrote (according to a fan translation), “Jimin-ah, I wish you a happy birthday I hope that this year, you eat lots and grow up and up.”

RM, Jungkook, J-Hope, and V also shared their birthday sentiments along with some never-before-seen pics. See them here: [1], [2], [3], [4], [5].

BTS also surprised Jimin by singing him “happy birthday” in Arabic during their recent tour stop in Riyadh, broadcasted live on VLIVE.

“The members started singing a song that I [didn’t] know, but I started kind of [lip-syncing] anyway just in case,” Jimin shared (according to a fan translator, via VLIVE). “The song sounded a bit familiar and I thought it was a New Year’s celebration song, but I thought wait, it’s a bit too early to celebrate new year’s… then I heard someone say ‘Jimin’ and I realized it was for my birthday.”

It might be Jungkook‘s birthday, but he’s giving a gift to fans!

The BTS member first thanked fans for all of their birthday wishes on Weverse on Saturday (August 31). (His 22nd birthday is on September 1, which it now is in South Korea.)

“If our ARMYs didn’t exist, I wouldn’t be as happy as I am on a day like today,” Jungkook wrote (via a fan translation account).

“I searched up all the things that you did for me; thank you so much…There really were so many,” he continued. “Honestly, that I would receive well wishes from so many people (from my beloved ARMYs) is something that still amazes me, and sometimes doesn’t feel real.”

Jungkook added that he usually uploads a cover song on his birthday, but since he wasn’t able to make one this year, he instead revealed a new short original track (sung in English) on BTS‘s Twitter.

BTS Asks Young People to Share Love & Kindness, Not Violence (Video)

BTS is doing their part to help end to violence and bullying.

The popular South Korean group and UNICEF posted a video to celebrate UN International Day of Friendship.

The video features BTS singing their hit single “Answer: Love Myself” over fictional stories of young people encountering violence, bullying, and fear in and around schools, sending a message of friendship and support.

“Our LOVE MYSELF campaign is all about encouraging every young person to find the love from within themselves and spreading that love to others,” BTS said in a press release. “We want everyone to take part in ending violence by sharing love and kindness.”

BTS‘s LOVE MYSELF campaign has raised over $2 million to help UNICEF #ENDviolence.

UNICEF is urging young people leave a kind note for someone – in real life or online – and share it for others to see.

“Children and young people have told us time and again that being treated with kindness and respect helps them to feel safe in and around school,” UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore said. “Every day students face a range of violent acts, from bullying and physical attacks to corporal punishment, sexual assault and harassment online. By being kind, children and young people can show their support for each other and brighten someone’s day. We’re grateful to BTS for their continued commitment to making sure that no child is afraid to go to school.”
