In the letter he written:
“I sincerely apologize to those that suffered because of me. There is no excuse for my past behavior. These were actions that cannot be forgiven. As I started acting, I think I was able to come this far because I covered my past while receiving undeserved attention from the public. But there was always a feeling of guilt in my heart and it always came with great anxiety, knowing that it was too late to regret. My dark past was always crushing me. I deeply apologize to those that have suffered a long time while watching me promote as an actor. I will reflect on my past, which I will never be able to wash away. I am pained for causing an enormous amount of damage to the broadcasters, production crew, actors, and the drama because of my own personal fault. I sincerely hope that no more damage will be put on the drama because of me. I sincerely apologize to all those that have been hurt by me.”
A representative from the drama confirmed they are discussing whether to replace him or not.
The representative stated:
“We are holding a meeting today regarding whether Ji Soo should continue to appear in the drama or not. We will make our position clear as soon as the decision is made.
The updated filming schedule will also be decided then.”
