Though Tiffany did make a public apology for inappropriately using the Rising Sun Flag on social media on the National Liberation Day of Korea, many netizens claimed her letter was not satisfactory. The Girls' Generation member has now followed up with another letter, which she posted to Instagram on August 26. 

Tiffany's letter is as follows:

"Hello, this is Tiffany.

On top of making such a big mistake, I was unable to muster the courage to give a sincere apology for 10 days after I wrote you all, who I've disappointed and hurt, a lacking apology letter.

Firstly, I ask for your forgiveness for being late with a fearful and trembling heart. I'll do my best to deliver a sincere apology to you and what I should've given earlier on the day I made a big mistake. 

On the National Liberation Day of Korea, I made the mistake of posting a design that included the Rising Sun Flag to social media. I've made a mistake that should not have been made when thinking of the meaning of Independence Day. 

As many people have already warned me, I was not knowledgeable about the history of the Rising Sun Flag, and I was not sensitive to the history of that pain. I'm very sorry for breaking your hearts due to my horribleness and carelessness. I bow my head in apology to those who believed in me and cheered me on. 

I've been able to do music because of your unchanging support and love until now, which I'm thankful for. However, despite being loved by you all for so long, I did not know basic Korean history well. I'm very embarrassed that I did not study in more detail.

Though I've always been thankful and felt pride as a singer who spreads Korean culture, I've once again realized how much more I need to feel responsibility and study. I won't forget that responsibility as someone in the public eye. 

I once again would like to extend my apologetic heart for causing concern on Independence Day because of the mistake I made. After realizing my mistake, the quick apology I wrote at the airport was not careful, and I apologize again for how lacking it was. I've spent each day regretting and feeling sorry for losing the chance to give a sincere apology. It's late, but I earnestly hope my sincerity is delivered.

This incident has let me know what's most important. I'll do my best to study and learn the things that are more important than singing and dancing from now on.

Thank you very much for reading my long, late letter."

this is so heartbreaking. come on la guys. She had already apologized, twice! And you still get so stubborn over this matter? Because Tiffany is such a good girl, haters try to make it like a big, unforgivable sin.

"the history of that pain", pain which none of those who have been angry at Tiffany will ever understand. Because those who have experienced that pain don't care who Tiffany is. Netizens' bigotry of the highest degree.
