Dae-sung, a member of popular idol group Big Bang, broke his nose in a car accident Tuesday evening.

The 20-year-old singer was returning to Seoul after shooting SBS television program ``The Family is Out!'' when the accident happened at the Pyeongtaek Express highway, Gyeonggi Province. The van hit the guardrail as it skidded in the pouring rain, according to YG Entertainment, the group's agency.

``Dae-sung, who was in the passenger seat, broke his nose. He also injured his back, but doctors said it would naturally heal when he rests for about four months. He also has minor bruises on his face and arm,'' the agency said.

YG added that Dae-sung's manager injured his arm, and his stylist hurt her leg, which required surgery.

Dae-sung received first aid treatment at a nearby hospital and is currently hospitalized in Seoul.

A YG official added that the singer will not be able to appear in his upcoming musical ``Shouting.''

Dae-sung made his debut with Big Bang's four other members ― T.O.P., G-Dragon, Victory and Tae-yang― in 2006. Since their debut, the group has garnered fans with their stylish looks and distinctive sounds. The five members have also pursued their individual paths as well, with Dae-sung and Victory starring in musicals, Tae-yang and G-Dragon releasing solo albums and T.O.P. appearing in television dramas.
