A Comeback After Reflection
This comeback marks Lim Youngmin's return to the music scene after three years of self-reflection following the drunk driving incident. In May 2020, just before AB6IX's comeback, Lim Youngmin drove his own car to the dorm while intoxicated. This led to the cancellation of the group's comeback and the subsequent withdrawal of Lim Youngmin from the group.
Lim Youngmin faced legal consequences as his drunk driving incident became public knowledge, resulting in the cancellation of his driver's license. He took responsibility for his actions and enlisted as an active duty soldier in November of that year. After completing his military service in May last year, he resumed his social media activities and started reconnecting with fans.
A Journey of Self-Reflection
During his military service, Lim Youngmin had ample time to reflect on his past mistakes. He acknowledged his shortcomings and the pain he caused others with his one mistake. In January, he expressed his feelings about the incident, stating, "I realized so many things after thinking about how lacking I was as well as how much damage and pain I had caused to others with my one mistake."
At the time of the controversy, there was a cold reception from the public, with negative comments flooding in regarding Lim Youngmin's actions. However, his loyal fans have been eagerly awaiting his return to the stage and are now showing their support and excitement for his comeback. All eyes are on Lim Youngmin as he prepares to make his comeback after three years.
