B.A.P Himchan has posted to his Instagram for the first time in a while after being charged and convicted with committing an indecent act by compulsion against a woman in her twenties.
On June 13, B.A.P Himchan wrote this to his Instagram account,
“Hello, this is Kim Himchan.
First of all, I’m sorry for speaking about this late.
I know it’s overdue, but I wanted to apologize, so I am writing about this now.
I would like to apologize to those who have believed and waited for me for all my actions so far.
There are many reasons why I brought it up late, but I stopped talking because of the pouring articles and stories different from the truth.
I’m sorry to have troubled you about the various events. I am also aware of everything about my mistakes and negligence, and I apologize for everything. I hope everyone will be happy.
Please forgive me for only doing this much in return for those who have believed in me.
I am so sorry and sorry again.
I hope everyone is happy without any incidents.
Thank you for everything.”
This comes after Himchan was sentenced to 10 months in prison in February of 2021, and ordered to complete 40 hours of a sexual violence treatment program. In March 2021, he filed for an appeal.
In related news, Himchan was booked for violation of traffic laws in October 2020, with an alcohol level high enough to have his driver’s license suspended.
What do you think of his apology?
