BTS member Jungkook is under police investigation after admitting responsibility for a car accident in South Korean capital Seoul. Exact details of what happened are unclear, but it is known that the singer crashed into a taxi on Saturday.

In a statement, BTS management company Big Hit Entertainment played down the incident, saying: “Jungkook was driving his car last week when he had a minor collision with another vehicle due to his own mistake. Both the victim and Jungkook did not sustain any major injuries”.

It went on: “Jungkook admitted that he violated the Road Traffic Act immediately after the accident. The scene of the accident was resolved and police questioning was completed according to the due process, and an amicable settlement was made with the victim afterwards. We once again apologise to the victim, and we also express apologies for causing concern to fans”.

Police have not commented as the investigation is ongoing. Meanwhile, BTS were celebrating on Sunday, after winning the Best Tour prize at the MTV European Music Awards. The band are also up for Tour Of The Year at the American Music Awards later this month.
