On April 10, boy group Myname’s Chaejin released a handwritten apology on the official fan page of Myname, about the recent controversy over a leaked photo of him and Urban Zakapa’s Jo Hyun-ah.

On April 7, a private picture and video clips of Chaejin and Jo Hyun-ah circulated the web. The documents were released by an acquaintance of the two, and soon went viral. In the picture, Jo Hyun-ah and Chaejin were in a rather scandalous position. Afterwards, both Jo Hyun-ah and Chaejin made a public apology.

In the handwritten apology, Chaejin said, “first, I would like to apologize to my fans, members, agency, and my family for creating such a controversy. I needed some time to gather the courage to deliver my apology to you.”

In addition, he said, “to be honest, I was scared and shocked how some parts were being twisted and creating false rumors. However, the fact that I have disappointed people who have done nothing but support me for the past 8 years scared me the most.”

He continues, “I think this resulted out of my lack of virtue. I only wrote the truth and fact about that day when my agency released the response about the controversial picture. From this, I will always reflect on my past mistakes.”

In conclusion, he said, “I also realized my every action can have an effect on this path I’m walking right now. Once again, I would like to offer my sincere apology to everyone around me.”
