SEOUL, Feb. 13 (Yonhap) -- Jun. K, a member of South Korean boy band 2PM, was caught driving under the influence of alcohol over the weekend, police said Tuesday.

Jun. K was caught for drunk driving in southern Seoul at 7 a.m. on Saturday, officials at Gangnam Police Station said. His blood alcohol content was 0.074 percent, a level that would lead to the suspension of his driver's license.

Police plan to question him soon over how he got behind the wheel while intoxicated.

His agency JYP Entertainment issued an apology, saying he will reflect on his actions and suspend all of his activities in the local show business in the future.

"We deeply apologize. He is repenting deeply," the agency said.

Jun. K also apologized for his "silly, spur-of-the-moment" decision.

"I am truly sorry that I have disappointed my fans, who have trusted me and loved me, and our members," he wrote on the boy band's official website.
