*rough translations*

“I sincerely apologize to those who suffered from me. What about the past misbehavior, there is no excuse. These were actions that could not be forgiven.

As I started acting, I covered my past. Receiving undeserved attention from the public, I think I’ve come this far. But in the heart of the past, there was always a feeling of guilt. It’s too late to turn back regrets. It always came to me with great anxiety. The dark past has always crushed me.

Seeing myself acting as an actor, we deeply atone for those who have suffered for a long time. I will reflect on and regret my past, which I will not be able to wash my whole life.

Because of this great fault, it is painful and shameful to cause tremendous damage to broadcasts, producers, actors, and staff members who have been silently watching the scene unfold. I sincerely hope that this will not cause any further damage to the drama.

To all those who have been hurt by me, on my knees, I sincerely apologize.”
