Baek Ji-young’s began her concert on February 10 not with a heart-racing song or an eye-catching dance break, but with an apology. Bowing to the audience, she said, “As his wife, I am apprehensive about my husband’s blunder. And together as his companion, we will sincerely reflect on this together.”

Following this, Baek Ji-young admitted she had reflected on her marriage with Jung Suk-won since the scandal. “I thought about my marriage vows again. Whether I am happy or sad, or healthy or sick, I will be there as a wife who loves him” she affirmed.

The apology and admission was a result of actor Jung Suk-won’s drug scandal that has unfolded over the past few days. Police arrested the actor at Incheon International Airport after receiving an anonymous tip of him allegedly using drugs. Later, once detailed and question, the actor admitted to using meth while on a recent trip to Australia.

Moreover, the drug usage was apparently motivated by simple curiosity. Unfortunately, his curiosity has embroiled him in a public scandal and irrevocably damaged his and his family’s reputation. This damage can be seen in the public’s response to Jung Suk-won’s apology which he gave on the 9th. Indeed, many Netizens question his reason and seeming lack of consideration for his family.

Meanwhile, Jung Suk-won and Baek Ji-young wed in 2013 and have one daughter who was born last May.
