The manager of rookie boy band MustB was killed while four members and an agency employee were injured in a car crash in Seoul.
They were on their way back to Seoul from a performance in Gyeongsan in North Gyeongsang province when their van hit a guardrail along Olympic Highway in Seoul at 3:40 a.m. on April 21.
The manager, surnamed Son, was severely injured and was taken to a hospital where he died. He was 37.
The four members of MustB and the agency representative were treated for injuries. The police are investigating the cause of the accident.
MustB is a seven-member boy band that debuted last January with the single “I Want U.” Its members are Sangwoo, Sihoo, Doha, Hawoon, Taegeon, Wooyeon, and Soohyun.
In 2014, members of girl group Ladies’ Code were involved in a car accident that resulted in the death of two members.
The girls, their manager, and stylist were driving back to Seoul from a performance in Daegu when their car crashed onto a wall at around 1:30 a.m. on Sept. 3.
Member EunB died in the accident while RiSe passed away four days later. Three other members suffered injuries. Their manager, who was driving the car, was convicted for causing the accident. He filed an appeal and got a suspended sentence.
