MANILA -- Jeon Jungkook, the youngest member of the K-pop boy band BTS, admitted to committing a traffic law violation after he was involved in a car accident last week, his agency BigHit Entertainment said in a statement.
While driving his car, the 22-year-old K-pop star had a “minor collision with another vehicle due to his own mistake,” according to the BigHit statement translated and published Monday by the Korean entertainment website Soompi.
The police have yet to close the case so details surrounding the incident cannot be revealed, according to BigHit.
“Jungkook and the victim did not sustain any major injuries,” the statement added.
After the accident, Jeon admitted to committing a traffic law violation, underwent police questioning, and settled with the victim, said BigHit.
Jeon debuted in 2013 as a member of the septet BTS, which has become one of the most popular K-pop acts in recent years, gaining a massive global following.
