Hi, I’m Song Ji A.
First of all, I would like to apologize for the delay in this apology video. I would also like to apologize for worrying everyone. As for the ongoing controversy regarding my use of counterfeit products, I admit it all and would like to admit that it is all my fault.
I should have been more careful as someone who runs a YouTube channel, but I have damaged the value of the brand by using counterfeit products. Also, I’ve disappointed everyone who ever believed in me and I’m sorry.
At first, I bought the items strictly because they were pretty, and then I started getting a lot of love from the public. I couldn’t come to my senses and found myself falling deeper into imitations. I feel so sorry and all I can think of when I look back is how pathetic I was.
When I look back at a time when I received so much love from people, I should have looked at myself internally, but I couldn’t. I kept falling deeper and focused my energy on the Song Ji AI that I wanted to show the public.
Regarding that, I feel sorry and I’m reflecting on my decisions. I am so sorry.
After the controversy of counterfeiting, I have been reading the advice and reproaches of all. I have been reflecting on my actions every day. I recognize my shortcomings and I regret my actions. I have been living while reflecting on my actions. Sorry.
Also, my fans who love me and my family members have been extremely hurt by my actions and misdeeds. Because of this, I feel the seriousness of the situation even more. It’s all my fault, so I ask you to stop criticizing my family. Sorry.
I also wanted to say that ever since I started my YouTube channel, my love for the Pringies (fans) has been sincere. In the midst of all this, however, it was rumored to be fake and many of my fans were hurt by this. But I want to say that it was always true and I want to say I’m sorry.
I have made all my videos on my channel private. I will take the time to continually reflect on my actions. I will personally bear the consequences of my actions to the end.
I’m really sorry.
