Is Goosebumps OK? AOMG producer injured as car skids on icy road in Seoul, says 'I almost died'
Goosebumps, the latest artist to be signed to the South Korean record label AOMG, has revealed he was in a near-death experience while driving his car on a slippery downhill road. The AOMG record producer and DJ took to his social media to share the news and photos of the aftermath. He has since deleted his post.
Reportedly, Goosebumps was not seriously injured and most of the damage to his Land Rover Discovery impacted the front bumper. In two of the three pics on Instagram, we see a close-up of his vehicle and the third is a snap of a thick coating of snow on a slippery road. There has been heavy snowfall in Seoul, South Korea, during the winter.
Goosebumps wrote the caption for his post in Korean. According to a translation by Allkpop, the producer has turned the incident into a positive note and believes he will experience success in the future and it will drive away bad luck. Goosebumps said, "I hit my car on a downhill and almost died." He noted in the now-deleted post, "I'm suppressing my anger thinking about getting out of quarantine and this is just a mishap that will bring future success and drive away bad luck."
