Nam Tae-hyun, DUI Following Suspicions of Yangdari and Drugs…”Trouble Maker.” [Roundup]
Singer Nam Tae-hyun (29), a former member of the group Winner, has been at the center of controversy again on charges of drunk driving following allegations of both legs and drug use.
The Gangnam Police Station in Seoul said on the 8th that it has booked Nam Tae-hyun on charges of drunk driving.
Nam Tae-hyun is suspected of driving for about 7 to 8 meters while drinking alcohol in a residential priority parking area in Gangnam-gu, Seoul, at 3:20 a.m. that day.
At that time, Nam Tae-hyun opened the vehicle door while waiting for a chauffeur after drinking in Sinsa-dong, and at that time, the side mirror of a taxi passing by and the vehicle door collided.
The accident damaged the right side mirror of the taxi, and it was investigated that Nam Taehyun later boarded the vehicle and drove.
As a result of the breathalyzer test, Nam Tae-hyun’s blood alcohol concentration was 0.114%, which is equivalent to the license cancellation level.
The incident took place about six months after allegations of drug administration surfaced, and the public’s eyes on Nam Tae-hyun are not good.
Nam Tae-hyun sparked controversy in August last year when Seo Min-jae, a former member of Channel A’s “Heart Signal 3,” claimed methamphetamine administration and assault.
At that time, Seo Min-jae posted on his Instagram, “Nam Tae-hyun is on methamphetamine. And there’s a syringe in my room or company cabinet. And that punch,” he posted a photo of Nam Tae-hyun putting his head together with him. Some Internet users who saw this reported it to the police.
Afterwards, Seo Min-jae said, “There was a quarrel between the lover and each other due to their faults. At that time, I took more psychiatric drugs than the right amount due to stress, so I was unconscious to the point where I couldn’t remember exactly, he explained. “I uploaded a post that had nothing to do with the facts.”
Nam Tae-hyun also said, “There was a fight between lovers, but we made up well. “I am truly sorry for causing so many people concern over personal matters,” he said. However, he remained silent about the suspicion of methamphetamine administration.
In this regard, the Yongsan Police Station in Seoul is investigating Nam Taehyun and Seo Min-jae on charges of violating the Narcotics Control Act.
Prior to this, Nam Taehyun caused controversy over his private life in 2019 when singer Jang Jae-in revealed the situation of both legs. Even then, Nam Taehyun bowed his head, saying, “I sincerely apologize to Jang Jae-in and other women who were hurt by this incident.”
Nam Taehyun made his debut as a group WINNER in 2014 and left the group, and is currently working on the South Club. However, due to repeated controversy, it is drawing more attention as a “trouble maker” than music.
