Ravi decided to let it go, he didn’t charge the student for his accident. “A” says he felt uneasy about it and complemented Ravi for his generosity and had written this post in hopes of sharing it everywhere.
“A” also revealed content of their messages, he had asked Ravi to give him more time to pay for the repair if it’s too expensive. Ravi responded with,
“I hope you weren’t hurt badly. You must’ve been more shocked because of the dent in the car. It seemed like you are both students, and it was an honest accident that happened while you were having a good time, so don’t worry about the repair cost!
I’ll take care of it. Electric scooters can be dangerous, so please be careful. It would be enough for me if you could show more love toward Ravi and GROOVL1N.”
In a statement to the press, Jellyfish Entertainment confirmed that the story was true. Ravi explained that the couple reminded him of his younger sister so he didn’t want to charge them for the repairs; he says he didn’t think of it as a big deal but thanked everybody for their interest.
