2PM's Nichkhun booked for driving under influence

Nichkhun Buck Horvejkul, the Thai-American member of the K-pop group 2PM, has been booked without detention for driving under the influence.

The 23-year-old, often known as Nichkhun, had a minor collision with a motorcycle at around 2:45 a.m. in southern Seoul's upscale Gangnam area, the Gangnam Police Station said.

His blood alcohol concentration, tested at the scene, was 0.056 percent, a level that could lead to the suspension of his driver's license, the police said.

His agency JYP Entertainment released a statement and apologized for the "carelessness" of the star's actions.

JYP said it will faithfully cooperate with the police for further investigation.

Nichkhun sings and raps in the six-member boy band, which debuted on the K-pop scene in 2008.
