Kpop post: BTS' Jungkook booked for car accident, IZ*ONE variety appearances shelved, CL flees YG

People brought this up in the comments of the last post, but no one appears to have posted about it, so here it is:

What happened? As far as I can tell, no one actually knows. According to fans, Jungkook was inching past illegally parked cars to avoid hitting them when he struck a taxi. According to the article linked in the above tweet, he was in a minor collision with a taxi but was found not to be drunk driving, with police advising that he could be booked later if it was confirmed that the taxi driver was harmed in the accident.

It's now later and Jungkook has been booked for two violations, one each under the Road Traffic Act and the Act on Special Cases Concerning the Settlement of Traffic Accidents. He's expected to be summoned for questioning, though who knows/cares when.

Previously, Big Hit (BTS' label) disclosed that Jungkook and the taxi driver had reached a settlement. The police have since said that Jungkook "was booked due to confirmation of the taxi driver receiving harm. Settlement is a personal matter and is not related [with the police investigation]."

The rest of the updates and tweets are under the cut:
As a follow up to the previous post, some of IZ*ONE's upcoming variety appearances have been shelved over the controversy surrounding the last two seasons of Produce. Some show called IdolRoom has followed in the footsteps of Amazing Saturday and My Little Television 2 and will be shelving the episode featuring IZ*ONE members as guests.

Their broadcast appearances as fixed cast members are also in doubt. When asked about member An Yu Jin's role as an MC on My Little Television 2, a source revealed "For now, you can consider her appearance on next week’s episode to be edited out."

Lastly, CL appears to have finally fled the sinking ship known as YG Entertainment. I don't really think any further comment on my part is necessary.

SOURCES: 1 2 3

I'm not following any of these closely, so please feel free to add details/clarifications in the comments. Thank you to those who provided information in the comments of the previous post!
