Idol Group MustB Involved In Car Accident, Manager Passes Away

Seven-member idol group MustB was involved in a car accident.

On April 21 at 3:40 a.m. KST on Seoul’s Olympic-daero (eight-lane highway in Seoul), midway between bridges Seoulgyo and Yeouigyo in the direction of Jamsil, MustB’s van hit a guard rail next to the road.

The group’s manager Son (aged 36), who was driving during the accident, was seriously injured and transferred to Ewha Womans University Mokdong Hospital. Unfortunately, Son passed away.

MustB was on their way back to their dorm in Seoul after performing in Daegu when the accident occurred. Four members of the group and one other employee from their agency were riding in the car, and they received treatment at the hospital after sustaining minor injuries. The remaining members of the group had already gotten out of the car before the accident happened.

The police are currently inspecting the car’s black box and questioning the group members to figure out the details of the accident. They are also checking the possibility that the accident occurred due to drowsy driving.

We send our deepest condolences to the manager’s family and friends.

36 is so young :(((( Rest in peace.

Drowsy driving is a serious hazard (I think it's the equivalent of having 1-2 drinks of alcohol in your system) and I wish it were more acknowledged. Unfortunately with the current work culture, it seems inevitable for a lot of people :(

That's awful. Rest in peace.

I caused an accident once (years and years ago, when I was 17) because I was exhausted and fell asleep behind the wheel and ended up rear ending someone. Thankfully it was on a street and not a highway, so it wasn't high speed/didn't cause any injuries, but I learned my lesson.

Rest in Peace.

Hope the boys get time to process this and not be forced into the same schedule immediately, in case of ptsd.

RIP, my condolences to Mr. Son's loved ones.

Drowsy driving really impairs driving ability, managers are often on the same (lack of) sleep schedule as idols and it's a big hazard.
