2PM Nichkhun's DUI Leads to His Removal from Waterpark Ads and Suspension of '2PM One Point Hangul' on NHK

The famous waterpark, Caribbean Bay, for which 2PM is the promoting group, deleted the picture of Nichkhun from their website. The other 2PM members seemed to be intact. 

An official from Caribbean Bay said in a phone call with SSTV on the morning of the 25th, "We deleted Nichkhun from our webpage because of what happened with his driving under the influence. We haven't decided on what to do about the commercials that are being aired on television just yet."

NHK also stopped '2PM's One Point Hangul,' a program that 2PM hosts on the Japanese network, citing Nichkhun's incident as the reason. This is an indefinite suspension and there have not been any official statements as to when the program will come back, if at all.

This is all consequences from the news that Nichkhun was arrested after causing a car accident with a motorcycle and had been found to be under the influence of alcochol in the early hours of July 24th. When he was arrested, Nichkhun's alcohol level was 0.056%, a level that could warrant the suspension of his driver's license. 

JYP Entertainment released a statement that said, "Both the company and Nichkhun take full responsibility for the accident and wish to express our utmost regret in what happened. We will comply fully with any following investigations."
