“My explanation, which was kept brief out of fear and feeling of apology, seems to have become controversial, so I am gathering the courage to post again.

My close friends and I like to visit Yedam’s studio and listen to music, watch movies and drink together. Yesterday five of us got together and drank, and a drunk friend and Yedam went home after midnight.

The remaining friends and I drank some more and accidentally posted a prepared video that is common these days on my public account instead of my private one. It is not an illegally filmed video of any kind.

I sincerely apologize for my immature behavior as someone who dreams of becoming an actor. I apologize to those who felt uncomfortable with the video and to the fans who support me. I will act carefully in the future. I apologize once again.”

– Lee Seo Han
