SEOUL (THE KOREA HERALD/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - South Korea's Source Music issued a statement Sunday (Sept 10) on a recent car accident that involved GFriend, saying that the singers did not sustain any major injuries and that the accident was caused by the inattentive driving of the group's manager.

According to the agency, pop group GFriend was on its way to Incheon Munhak Stadium for the 2017 Incheon K-pop Concert when its car hit the vehicle in front of it while changing lanes on the Second Gyeongin Expressway at around 5.30pm on Saturday.

"The recent accident was due to the manager's careless driving, and we sincerely apologise to the members for the damage, as well as to the audience of the INK concert who didn't get to see GFriend on that day," the statement read.
