Big Bang’s Daesung makes an appearance on TV

MBC’s “Infinity Challenge” is drawing a ton of attention thanks to its June 11th broadcast, which featured an appearance from Big Bang’s Daesung.

In this episode, the boys of Big Bang were seen preparing for a festival. During a meeting with all the members, comedian Park Myung Soo and leader G-Dragon suggested to go with a music concept, thus clearing away many differences in opinions.

But what really caught the viewers’ attention was when Daesung sat down with Park Myung Soo, who was spitting some freestyle rap. Daesung and the other Big Bang members suggested that Park Myung Soo, who didn’t seem to understand ‘rap’, “try improvising humming instead.”

Since Daesung had been edited out completely from other programs because of his involvement with a major accident, his appearance on “Infinity Challenge” was a surprise to fans and viewers. Many were happy to see Daesung once again, even though the episode was pre-recorded.

On a side note, Park Myung Soo drew lots of laughter by going all the way to Big Bang’s Japanese concert and urging G-Dragon to write him a song.

Daesung visits the funeral site of accident victim Hyun

On the night of June 2nd, Daesung paid a visit to the funeral site of accident victim, Hyun. He apologized to the victim’s family after paying his respects to their loved one.

The victim’s family stated, “Daesung arrived with his agency representatives. We received apologies from Daesung and from YG Entertainment, and talked about the procedures that will be taken from now.

Daesung visited the funeral site around 10:30PM KST. He came with five individuals, including the chairman of YG Entertainment and his attorney. It’s said that he kept his head down and said “I’m sorry“, and apologized again when a family member confronted him.

Family member ‘A’, who was in charge of the funeral procession, stated, “Daesung looked very shocked. A representative from his agency apologized, and Daesung was unable to speak. When the relatives told him to apologize directly to Hyun’s family, he bowed his head to every person in the room and sincerely apologized to each and every family member.

The apology took place four days after the accident, and two days after the funeral site was set up. This was the first time that the victim’s family met with Daesung and his people from the agency. As such, some of Hyun’s family felt disappointed by the lateness of the call.

‘A’ commented, “We did feel disappointed. A person has died. And he is the person at the center of this accident. We thought the apology came first. But according to the agency, [Daesung] ‘drove at 60km’, ‘Even I couldn’t have avoided the accident’; they explained the accident like that and sheltered him. Our child is dead and gone, and we were disappointed as human beings.

YG Entertainment explained that the visit took place late at night so that Daesung could pay his respects in person as well. The high level of interest in this case would have made it difficult for Daesung to arrive earlier in the day. They also explained that after the accident happened, Daesung’s condition was so bad that he could not come right away. He couldn’t even eat, and did not see his parents.

Another family member by the name of ‘B’ stated, “The agency explained that it took [a lot of] time so that they could bring Daesung. We were angry at first but after seeing Daesung in person, he looked truly pitiful himself. He looked like he was having a hard time. Wouldn’t he be shocked to have experienced this horrible accident at such an early age?“.

YG Entertainment apparently discussed the funeral proceedings with the victim’s family, and it was agreed that the agency would absorb the costs associated with the funeral. After police investigations are complete, further arrangments will be made with the family.

The victim’s family stated, “We heard about the CCTV and autopsy [proceedings]. We think revealing the truth is the most important thing right now. Daesung’s side apologized sincerely, and told us that they would consult with us cordially about future procedures, so we’ll trust them for now. We will proceed with the burial of the coffin as scheduled.

The police are currently analyzing CCTV collected around the accident site. The victim’s family were given initial reports of autopsy results and analysis from the CCTV footage.

But because nothing has been finalized or confirmed, however, the family has decided to remain mum. At this point in time, they seek nothing but the truth.

Hyun’s family stated, “The dead don’t speak. But don’t they have a right not to feel injustice even when they’re dead? We hope that questions about our child’s death will be answered by investigations done by the police. Unfair things should never happen to anyone. The police is the only thing we can trust now.

Meanwhile, Yang Hyun Suk has updated YG-Life blog on June 3rd with the entry, “We express our deepest condolences to the deceased’s family and pray that he may rest in peace.”

YG Entertainm​ent issues second statement about Daesung’s car accident

As Daesung’s car accident continues to be investigated, the taxi driver that was rear-ended by the Big Bang star revealed that Daesung had in fact been driving at 60km/h. A police statement previously asserted that Daesung was driving at 80km/h, but YG Entertainment has argued that there are many different factors to this incident, and that it should be regarded as a complex case.

On May 31st, a representative of YG Entertainment spoke through Star News and stated, “Daesung was at Big Bang’s dorm in Sangsoo-dong before deciding to head to his parents’ home in Guro-dong. He hadn’t seen them in a while due to his busy schedule and decided to make the visit on his own. Just five minutes from Big Bang’s dorm, he got into an accident. Because it had just been within five minutes, we are highly sure that he wasn’t dozing off while driving. Moreover, Big Bang had no schedules whatsoever the day before on the 30th, so Daesung was not in a fatigued condition.”

The YG Entertainment representative continued,

The taxi driver who was rear-ended by Daesung has said that Daesung had not been driving that fast; he said that he felt he had driven at about 60 km/h. Although Daesung was the one who told the authorities that he was driving at 80 km/h,  this was said while he was in a state of great shock and confusion.”

The site of the accident is on a downhill slope – isn’t it normal for most drivers to not have their foot on the accelerator while driving downhill? Therefore, in order to find at what speed Daesung was driving at, there must be an on-site investigation.

Previously, the Seoul Youngdeung-Po Police Department stated,

Daesung violated the rules for safe driving by not being able to see in front of him while driving at 80 km/h. If Daesung had in fact been driving at 80 km/h (where the speed limit was 60 km/h), it would be considered to be a speed limit violation. However, because that figure was part of Daesung’s testimony, in order to find out exactly how fast he was going, more investigation needs to be done.

Meanwhile, the police are examining the accident in great detail, combing through certain facts like how the motorcyclist was already bleeding before Daesung’s accident, leading to a theory of a possible prior hit-and-run. According to the police, Daesung seemed to have not seen the motorcyclist because he was scrambling to brake when he saw the stopped taxi in front of him.

It’s been revealed that Daesung hadn’t been driving under the influence and that the taxi driver did not sustain any major injuries. After the accident, Daesung and the taxi driver underwent five hours of investigation by the authorities before returning home.

At the police station, Daesung said, “There was one car behind the taxi in the first lane. When both cars suddenly moved to the second lane, I couldn’t avoid hitting the taxi that had returned to the first lane to stop.

The police revealed, “We plan to find the cause of the motorcyclist’s death. In order to determine if the motorcyclist had died due to Daesung’s car, we had requested a detailed analysis from the National Institute of Scientific Investigation and have obtained the CCTV footage from the area. We plan to investigate this scientifically.

When the motorcycle was found, it found standing more than 10m away from the motorcyclist. Whether this was due to a hit-and-run or another previous accident will be investigated with the Highway Department.”

It appears that results of the motorcycle analysis will take up to 7-10 days.

Daesung has received much shock due to this accident. A YG representative revealed, ”After finishing the police investigation at 7AM, Daesung has returned to his dorm with his manager.

YG Entertainment CEO Yang Hyun Suk said, “We will continue to follow the results that the police investigations reveal regarding the accident. Currently, Daesung’s distress is not due to his mistake, but due to his sorrow for the motorcyclist who died due to an accident.”
