Kingmck, the winner of Mnet's 'Headliner' -- a DJ competition program back in 2015 -- has allegedly abused his girlfriend, Christina Paik, and have since apologized on his social media account. Christina Paik is a famous photographer who has worked with many top artists and has a large social media following.
The incident was written in what appears to be Christina's Instagram stories. It details how the DJ abused Paik 'for hours' when she tried to leave him. He held her down and threatened to 'kill himself' with a knife. See the screenshots from the account below:
Paik wrote about not only the physical abuse that she experienced but also her determination to stop this atrocity. She wrote, "I don't want him to get away w this. Nor think this is okay. I don't want the next girl [to] have to go through the same thing either. [sic]."
Since the reports of the abuse, Kingmck wrote on his Instagram account, a message that seems to address the issue that had surfaced earlier.
먼저 저 킹맥은 백정원씨에게 사과의 말을 드립니다. 제가 한 행동이 분명히 잘못되었다는 것을 깊이 깨닫고 있습니다. 제 활동을 지지해주신 팬 여러분께도 죄송하다는 말씀을 전합니다. 지금 현재 저는 백정원씨와 제 잘못된 행동에 대해 사과하고 있는 중입니다. 연락은 일방적으로 이뤄지지 않았으며 백정원씨의 동의하에 이뤄지고 있습니다. 연애를 하며 여러 차례 반복되는 싸움이 있었고, 원망스러운 마음에 저는 백정원씨에게 말과 행동으로 씻을 수 없는 상처를 주었습니다. 제가 하지 않은 행동에 대해 대변하기 보다 안좋은 소식으로 여러분께 걱정을 끼쳐 제 잘못된 점에 대해 책임지겠습니다. 스스로에게 화가 나고 참담한 마음입니다. 앞으로 백정원씨가 요구하는 바를 받아들이고, 제가 할 수 있는 모든 것을 행동에 옮기도록 노력하겠습니다. 걱정해주신 모든 분들께 감사의 말씀 드립니다. 비판해 주신 여러분들께도 부끄럽지 않도록 행동하겠습니다. 다시 한 번 물의를 일으켜 죄송합니다.
"First of all, I apologize to Paik Jung Won (Christina Paik). I am deeply realizing that what I did was clearly wrong. I am sorry to the fans who have supported me.
Right now, I am apologizing to Paik Jung Won about my wrongdoings. I am not forcing my contact toward her. We have mutually agreed to contact each other.
While dating, there were many, repeated arguments, and because I felt angry at her, I have said and done things to Paik Jung Won that are unforgivable. Instead of making excusing for my behaviors, I will take responsibility for causing concerns.
I am angry and terrible at myself. I will accept any requests from her and do what I can do. Thank you to everyone for your concerns on this matter.
To those who criticized me, I will conduct myself in a manner so I am not embarrassed of my own behavior. Again, I am sorry for causing this."
It appears Christina wasn't too impressed with the apology:
