“Hello, this is Go Min Si.
First of all, I apologize for posting bad news and causing disturbance with pictures of my underage drinking.
I am sure some of you who have been rooting for me had been hoping the girl in the photo wasn’t me, and I am sure some people just hoped I’d quickly confess the truth.
I will not deny it, the person in the photo is me.
I also think that things like this shouldn’t be ignored with excuses that I was young and immature and its all in the past. I am aware that people received unspeakable wounds from this.
I recognize that my past actions were wrong and I take full responsibility for what I did back then.
Sometimes, words can’t express everything, it will be difficult to fully relay my sincerity, but I sincerely apologize to those who suffered damage because of me.
I’ll try my best to walk a more mature and righteous path.”
What do you think of this?
