On October 24, Kangnam posted a letter of apology on his SNS.
Hello. This is Kangnam. I was trying to be funny in the program, and I went overboard and said the wrong things. I realized that my ill-considered remarks and ignorance caused disappointment and discomfort among many people, and I immediately apologized to Kyungri and Sam. I was worried that my bad Korean might fail me in conveying my sincerity, so I got help from an employee of my agency to write this. I would like to say sorry to Kyungri and Sam once again, and I feel sorry and grateful to the viewers for teaching me what I've done wrong and scolding me. As a TV personality, I should have been responsible and considerate, but I wasn't, and I am so ashamed and regretful over my remarks. I will learn and reflect on myself, and I will think and act more carefully to never make these kinds of mistakes again. Once again, I sincerely apologize for those who felt discomfort due to my thoughtlessness.
