That's a bit of an unusual crack for drywall - is it just joint compound or is the drywall actually involved?

I made a mistake and wrote the drywall instead of joint compound.

I'd scrape off anything that's loose and apply a coat of setting compound like durabond - it's not water soluble. Primer and paint might be nice too ....... but then I am a painter

Yep, Mark said the same thing I'm thinking.

My joint compound is collapsed. Do I still use it? I will buy a new joint compound instead? Thx

Personally...since it's under the sink (presuming with cabinet and doors) I'd caulk it and forget it til it's time for a re-model.

What does that mean?

It isn't uncommon for the water to rise to the top and for the j/c to need mixing.
