Going nowhere. Block B’s Zico will continue his panel role on Mnet’s Show Me the Money following his recent car accident controversy.
The show’s network CJ E&M confirmed to local news on that the 22-year-old rap star’s role on the popular rap talent show will not be affected by the recent motoring incident.
Says a rep for the show, which is now in it’s fourth season, “Zico is himself in deep reflection regarding the accident. While cautious, his activities on the program will continue.”
The Block B idol star was involved in a car accident in the early hours of July 9, while his manager was at the wheel and under the influence.
A swarm of reports suggested that the rapper might be to blame for the incident, but Gangnam police investigators stressed to IdolWow! that it was not Zico at the wheel.
Zico, his manager and another associate were in the vehicle at the time of the accident after returning from bandmate Park Kyung’s birthday party in Gangnam, Seoul.
