The former idol star posted to his Facebook page:
"Hello. I apologize for making so many people worry because of the reports today. I wanted this to pass quietly for the sake of my son and his mother, but the reports made headlines. This isn't something I'm going to talk about at length, but we decided to divorce due to personality differences. We've completed all the paperwork for the divorce through a mutual agreement. The decision was made after a lot of discussion and worrying. Since I didn't separate from my child's mother because of a bad relationship, we'll both take responsibility as the child's parents until the end even if our relationship is over as a married couple. Finally, I'm a person who's already been exposed to being in mass media, but I'd like to sincerely ask everyone that this not become an even bigger wound for my son as he grows up. Thank you."
The former U-KISS member and his ex-wife married in November of 2015 before welcoming a baby boy in May of the following year.
