Kangnam has personally apologized for the insensitive remarks about Ghana he made to Sam Okyere as well as his previous statements to Nine Muses' Kyung Li.
On October 24, Kangnam posted the following letter on Instagram:
"Hello. This is Kangnam. I was too greedy about wanting to make people laugh, so I said things that weren't right. I've found that my careless words and ignorance disappointed a lot of people and made them uncomfortable, and I've apologized to Kyung Li and Sam. I thought a lot about this as I'm still not good with writing Korean, and I wanted to clearly express my sincere feelings after disappointing a lot of people. I've gotten the help of an agency employee to write this. I want to sincerely apologize once again to Kyung Li and Sam, and I'm very thankful and apologetic to the viewers who criticized me and tried to teach me. I should have taken responsibility and shown a careful image as an entertainer, and I'm embarrassed and regretful that I didn't. I'll wake up more and reflect on myself, and I'll think and act more carefully as to not make these mistakes in the future. Once again, I sincerely apologize to all those who felt uncomfortable due to my carelessness."
As previously reported, Kangnam and Tony An visited Sam Okyere on SBS' 'My Ugly Duckling', and Kangnam asked a few insensitive questions about whether there were televisions and subways in Sam Okyere's home country of Ghana. He also received a lot of criticism for joking about beating up Kyung Li until she dies.
What do you think of the controversy?
