The lengthy and heartfelt apology must have moved many people's hearts, and led them to forgive the idol for her mistake.
An overwhelming majority of netizens flooded a top article on Naver reporting on Tiffany's apology with positive comments. Some of the top-rated comments read:
"Tiffany didn't choose to stay mute, reflected on her mistake once more, and chose to apologize. If you are still going to attack her after this, then it can no longer even be considered patriotic but rather, a murder that is disguised as patriotism. You can't chuck rocks at someone who is aware of her mistake."
"Fany, let's please be more careful from now on. Be strong, Fany."
"She uploaded an apology letter twice so let's all stop attacking her now."
"It must have been hard for you; be strong."
"Tiffany deserves all the flak she received for her mistake that day, and I don't intend to defend her at all..but you can't deny the fact that she only worked diligently without mistake for the past ten years. So please hold back your harsh words...I will always be cheering you on, Fany, so that you will be able to dust yourself off and rise back up."
"I beg of you to please stop the condemnation that knows no end.."
