Comedian Jung Chan Woo apologized for his comment.
Sunmi had posted a picture of a chrysanthemum to express her condolences for Kim Joo Hyuk's passing with the caption "Rest in peace." Jung Chan Woo had replied to her post and wrote, "That's a pretty flower." The post did not sit too well with netizens, who thought the comment was completely inappropriate.
He tried to explain himself on Sunmi's post after realizing what the post was about and said, "I'm so sorry. I did not read the caption." He also apologized on his Twitter and explained, "I apologize sincerely. I left a comment without thinking and offended many people. I don't have an excuse and I'm sorry that I disappointed many people by not being careful. I admit I was wrong. I am sorry. I can only say sorry. I sincerely hope he rests in peace."
