Lee Seung Gi's promoting agency APR Agency apologized for giving wrong information to the press and demanded that the stylist who handed them the wrong information take responsibility.
APR Agency sent out official information about Lee Seung Gi leaving for Japan on May 31 through Incheon Airport, so that the press could photograph Lee Seung Gi during his departure. However, the photographers waited at the airport 30 minutes before they were told that Lee Seung Gi actually left earlier.

APR Agency said, "We were checking with many stylists for celebrities who were leaving, and we were able to confirm Lee Seung Gi was leaving. We suggested to his main stylist to hold an airport fashion shoot, and we set up a contract between the main stylist and the brand. On May 30, we called the main stylist directly and checked on the fitting situation, and we also received confirmation on what he would be wearing as well as his departure information through KakaoTalk. With this, we were able to send media outlets the information on May 30 at around 6 PM KST."
They continued, "Usually when we send out airport information, we list contact information of managers or other staff members who will be with the celebrity. The stylist told us that she would be with Lee Seung Gi and asked us to list her information. Her contact information is listed in the press information. And this morning on May 31, we were able to hear from the press and Hook Entertainment that the information was wrong. Hook Entertainment also verified that the stylist never confirmed the airport fashion shoot with them. We need Lee Seung Gi's stylist to come forward with her accurate stance."
APR Agency added, "The main stylist has managed Hook Entertainment artists for years, so we trusted her and went through with this. We're flustered about this, and our label has received a lot of damage. We apologize for causing an inconvenience with the false information provided."
Reportedly, the stylist in question is not picking up her phone. What do you think happened?
