Seventeen's Wonwoo apologized for his controversy as a Girls' Generation anti.

Recently, Wonwoo's past posts calling Girls' Generation members ugly, picking on their supposed plastic surgery, and writing hateful posts in general have surfaced. Wonwoo wrote a letter onto his fancafe apologizing, and Pledis Entertainment explained, "He wanted to apologize himself instead of through the label. He thought this would be the best way to express his feelings, so we are revealing this after a lot of thought. We apologize for not fulfilling our role as a guardian."

His letter read,

Hello, this is Wonwoo.
First, I want to apologize for everyone who I have hurt by this situation. Instead of making excuses by saying they were foolish mistakes I made when I was young, or saying that I don't remember what I did, I believed that admitting my faults and apologizing was the right choice, which is why I'm writing this.
Even though I wrote it when I was young, it is definitely something I wrote, and I am sorry to the Girls' Generation sunbaenims, their fans, as well as Carats who were hurt by this. I am also sorry to the members, who worked hard together to become Seventeen together.
If I think about it now, I was so immature. I thought lightly about the stars on television, and I never thought about how the words I said would hurt other people. 
During middle school, after I became a trainee to become Seventeen, I realized the weight that the people who stand on stage have to carry. I realized how many people work hard for one person to stand on stage. After I became Seventeen and stood on stage and learned what kind of feelings people have on stage, I realized the meaning of standing on stage. I sincerely felt how amazing it was for the Girls' Generation sunbaenims to stand on stage, and respected them. I also learned how responsible I have to be in this field with the fans' love. While getting attention from the public, I learned about the effects of a single post, and how the person reading it felt. Because of this, I am even more reflecting on my actions.
I don't dare ask for forgiveness. I only want to reflect endlessly about my actions and apologize to the Girls' Generation sunbaenims. Even when I look back on myself, the thoughtless posts were improper, and they were actions that could have hurt someone, so I can't even raise my head because I am so sorry.
I will work hard never to disappoint again. I will read all the criticism and advice on my immature actions and never forget them. Also, please continue to teach me. I apologize once again.
I am sorry.  

What do you think about this situation?

ah, what an angel.he shouldn't have to apologise for something that happened over a decade ago.remember this, whether somebody does something good or bad, whether it be verbally or physically, they would have definitely done something the total opposite of what they've done now in the past. you cant base people off one incident. of course this doesn't apply to everyone and everything. im just saying how petty some haters are being, im sorry if i offended anybody <3

How can I believe this? Anyone could have written this. If Wonwoo did that he would have been bashed on during debuting. I don't think Wonwoo would be such a hateful person. I love Girls Generation but I don't think anyone would say that about them except haters. It disgusts me how some people go bash them just because of thinking this is real. You don't even know if they could have wrote the letter (author)
