Hello, this is B1A4's Gongchan.
First of all, I want to apologize to the fans who must have been hurt by my words.
I was talking to Hongbin, who is a close friends, and I was reading the tweets fans were sending me. I should have been careful in my words since many people were watching the comfortable conversation I had with a close friend, but I was not careful.
Before I posted this, I looked up the misunderstandings many people had. The problematic part was that I replied back to him about bank accounts, and it looked like I was saying we should use fans for our travel expenses.
I understand fully that people can look at things differently. I also look up many fans' mentions about me all the time, so I thought I should talk about this for the fans who are hurt even if it gets a little long.
While Hongbin and I were talking about going travelling, Hongbin asked for my bank book and card, and I thought to myself that he was joking around saying that he was going to make me pay for everything. So I was going to reply back saying as a joke that we should use Hongbin's card for everything, but I saw that fans were replying to us asking for Hongbin's bank account so they could decide for us.
I saw that and thought fans were joking around the same way I was that Hongbin would pay for everything, and I meant that joke for Hongbin to reveal his bank account so fans can decide on our travel location and where we would stay.
I was being comfortable because it was a conversation with a friend, and I think I have hurt a lot of people. I apologize once again that I was not careful enough as a public person.
I will work hard to think more carefully in the future.
What do you think about the controversy?
