On the 21st, the actress posted, "I tried to walk my dogs because the weather was so nice, but people tell me.. 'Leash in your dog. Didn't you see the dogs kill people?' All dog owners can say is bow their heads and say sorry. It's so true when they say there are no bad dogs. If the dog was Kang Hyung Wook's (famous Korean dog trainer) pet, would the accident have happened? Why are people talking about euthanizing the dog instead of blaming the people.. I want to carefully say think people need to respect a life as it is."
She also added in the comments, "As a dog owner, when I see others walk around without a leash, I also think it's not right. But dogs can bite when people pet the dog without even asking, and when that happens, everyone blames the dog owner and the dog. I hope people can think differently."
After being flooded with criticism, she deleted the photo and instead re-uploaded it without a caption. In the morning, she posted an apology and wrote, "When I woke up this morning, I thought my post was so rude and I deleted it.. and it really was foolish of me. I apologize for concerning many people with my thoughtless actions as well as my spur-of-the-moment thoughts, and I want to apologize even more. I will think more on my actions and act more carefully. I once again apologize to everyone who I have disappointed.."
