On June 12, both Simon D and Girls' Generation's Sunny made an apology regarding their conversation on the June 11 airing of her radio program 'Sunny's FM Date' as the content was deemed inappropriate.
On June 11, Simon D appeared in the corner entitled 'The Technique for Love' and took part in informal speech and jokes of a mature nature. Simon D told Sunny, "You did a good job calling me. I have really good technique," starting off with a suggestive comment from the beginning.
A taken aback Sunny said, "You love with your heart. But you've kept talking about technique." Simon D replied, "Using your heart is also a kind of technique. Likewise, using your body could be another kind of technique."
Also on this day, Simon D said in the early part of the broadcast, "To tell the truth, I drank until I got sick and lied down for two days before coming here. That's why my face isn't that great right now. Though I came here to see our Sunny," which made people wonder if he was intoxicated on set.
With comments of this nature and throwing out jokes that suggested at 19+ rated themes, netizens also criticized Simon D for putting Sunny in a tough spot as he seemed flirtatious with his comments and gave her a hard job of trying to tone things down or wrap up his jokes in a matter appropriate for young listeners.
He wrote on Twitter the next day, "I sincerely apologize for my poor behavior on 'Sunny's FM Date' yesterday. I definitely did not drink; my inadequacy is at fault as I felt too comfortable on air. From now on, I will correct my manners and engage in broadcast with earnest. I apologize."
At the press call for her musical 'Singin' In the Rain' on June 12, Sunny also addressed this issue: "It has only been a month since I've been on the radio so far, so I think my incompetence is to blame. From now on, I will work harder so that no matter what guest comes in or whatever corner is going on, I will make it so that people can listen without discomfort."
Fortunately, Simon D's quick apology after the controversy appear to have alleviated netizens' feelings.
어제 써니의 FM데이트에서 제 방송 태도가 불량했던 것에 대해 진심으로 사과드립니다. 전 절대 술을 마신 것이 아니고, 너무 편하게 생각하고 방송을 한 저의 부족함 탓입니다. 앞으로 예의 바르고 겸손하게 방송에 임하겠습니다. 죄송합니다.— SIMON Dominic 쌈디 (@babospmc) June 12, 2014
