Hi, I’m Doyoung. During the comeback live, I made a serious mistake without properly acknowledging the situation. I want to apologize for those who felt hurt and uncomfortable by my actions and words. It was my mistake, so I apologize without excuses. I will work hard not to make a mistake like this again. Once again, I want to apologize to those who were hurt by my actions and words.
I want to say that I am deeply sorry for the image I showed of myself during the live broadcast for the comeback. I am sorry that I misjudged the situation and acted carelessly and hastily. I will reflect deeply on myself and work hard not to show such behavior again.
