Some fans were troubled to see a clip of Park Woo Jin pulling Park Ji Hoon by the hair on an airplane, and though YMC Entertainment officially stated the act was just in jest, Park Woo Jin has followed up with an apology letter following controversy. Park Ji Hoon has also given a statement.
On January 15, Park Woo Jin posted to Wanna One's official fan cafe:
"Wannable, this is Ji Hoon. Firstly, I apologize for causing so many people to worry. Woo Jin and I are same-aged friends, and as we're really close, there are times we get kind of rough when we joke around with each other. I didn't know that playfulness would become a big deal like this.
After the clip you saw, Woo Jin fixed my hair for me, and we talked to each other with no problem. When we joke around, we don't feel bad, and we don't get hurt or have hurt feelings.
There's no problem between us, and we're getting along well. You don't have to worry. I'll be careful to show a good image and not worry so many people in the future."
Park Woo Jin also posted:
"Hello, this is Wanna One's Park Woo Jin. I'm sincerely sorry that I acted in a way that would cause so much worry in a public space. Ji Hoon and I usually joke around roughly with each other, and I think that made people who saw it uncomfortable. I'll behave more carefully, so this sort of thing doesn't become an issue. I'll also try harder to show you a good image."
What are your thoughts on their apologies and the controversy?
