On July 2 mornings, Lee Hyori took to instagram to issue a public apology, she stated,
“Hello, this is Lee Hyori.
I am currently deeply repenting on the fact that my behavior last night was no appropriate for a time when I should have been more cautious.
I’ve been too excited these days, so I wasn’t able to think about my actions deeply.
As an unnie, I feel sorry for YoonA. In the future, I will be more careful and cautious in the future. I apologize once again.”
YoonA also similarly shared a handwritten apology letter echoing what Hyori had said, she apologized a couple of times stating that she ‘had a lapse in judgment,’ and promised to act more carefully in the future.
