Prosecutors are currently considering pressing charges against a bodyguard for K-pop boy group NCT Dream following allegations that he pushed and injured a fan.
The incident reportedly took place on Feb. 20 at Incheon International Airport in South Korea, where NCT Dream had just returned from an overseas engagement.
According to the Korea JoongAng Daily, an unnamed bodyguard in his 30s is accused of forcefully pushing a fan, causing her to collide with a wall and break a rib.
The injured fan sought medical attention and was allegedly informed by doctors that her recovery would take approximately five months.
Subsequently, she lodged a formal complaint against the bodyguard with the police. The case has now been handed over to the prosecution for further investigation.
In related news, NCT Dream is scheduled to release a new studio album during the third quarter of 2023. SM Entertainment also announced plans to launch three new groups in 2023, including NCT’s final sub-group, which is speculated to be called NCT Tokyo.
