“Hello, I’m comedian Park Narae.
I had a long time to think about what to say.
I’m sorry for causing inconvenience to many people with the inappropriate videos on the web entertainment show “Hey Narae.”
As a broadcaster and a public figure, it was my responsibility and duty to meticulously check and express myself appropriately from planning to characters, acting, and props, and my inexperienced handling skills gave many disappointments.
In the meantime, I’ve been receiving a lot of love by you. I’m sorry for all the people who trusted me and supported me.
From now on, I will try to become Park Na Rae who thinks deeply about every word and every action.
Once again, I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused until late at night.”
