Police would not confirm any injuries, but described the case as minor because it did not cause much human or property damage. They also said the case did not involve drunken driving.

Calls to Big Hit Entertainment were not answered.

The Segye Ilbo report, citing police, claimed Jungkook violated traffic rules while driving his Mercedes Benz and hit the taxi on a Seoul street.
