Kim Choong Jae apologizes to Key's fans after being caught drawing on tablet PC during his concert

Kim Choong Jae has issued an official apology after receiving criticism for his poor etiquette while attending SHINee member Key's recent 'KEYLAND' solo concert.

On the evening of February 3, the television personality, who also works as a graphic designer, was caught doing personal work on his tablet PC while the concert was going on. According to the reports, he was not concentrating on the performance and had spent roughly an hour-and-a-half drawing.

Those sitting around him during the show revealed the news online, saying that it was bad manners.

The next morning, Kim Choong Jae took to his personal Instagram to express an apology, stating: "I'm sorry to all of those who I caused discomfort to by drawing on my tablet PC while at Key's concert."


He then revealed that the project he was working on was actually for Key, and the two had intentions of meeting after the concert to go over his designs. Because of his tight schedule, he had been fitting in working on the project when he could.

"I realize that it wasn't proper concert-going manners,"
he conceded.

Meanwhile, Key's 'KEYLAND' concert series runs every weekend through February 17 at the SMTOWN COEX Artium.

Check out Kim Choong Jae's Instagram apology below.

He spent his money for the ticket and he can participate in the concert anyway he wants as long as it is not hurting others. People need to mind their business. For all they know the atmostphere was giving him aspiration.

Key probably invited him so I doubt he paid but I don’t see the issue with him working especially if it was for Key.

Seriously? If I lived in SK I would feel suffocated. Every action attracts criticism. Even drawing he can still listen to the music.

he bought his ticket. he wanted to be at the concert. he might prefer listening to the live music but doesn't care too much about watching. maybe he just wanted to support key. maybe key's music inspired him. who the heck knows - but a better question, why the heck should anyone care? and the people at the concert who are saying it was rude of him to focus on the tablet rather than key's performance... weren't they focusing on a single man in the audience using a tablet rather than on key's performance? lmao hypocritical

its not that bad that he was working on his art seriously, he wasnt disturbing others. key probably wouldve been proud being able to inspire Kim Choong Jae's art, artists dont get to choose when their inspiration comes and once its gone it could be gone forever.

Someone who is a foreigner there lived in Korea for 14 years told me these. What she learned that netizens there in Korea are unlike people in the U.S. They do look at people's etiquette,manners, and the fashion trends must follow accordingly in order to be accepted.


I personally don't know how reliable of her informations. But I can say that I can never be in a place where I can't do what I want which isn't breaking law or physically harming anyone. I question if it's the reason of many depressants?

Clearly these akp commentors havent ever attended concerts. Like going to church, there is proper etiquette when attending a concert, and not paying attention to the performer is very disrepectful. Yall bitches need to learn some class

girl the performer doesn't give af. They made their money. The only people paying mind to the people not paying attention are the audience members. Pay attention to the performer instead of the person not paying attention. And if i paid money to attend a concert, I'm gonna do whatever i want while im there and you can't do anything about it.

Yep. We can do what we want as long as we don't disturb anyone or having bad intention in doing that action. That comment came from someone who is using the name "SoNastySuckDik" and calling bitches to random people. If that is what she/he called class is, nah, i'll pass. ㅋㅋㅋ

Sweetie, Key made his coins and that's what matters. This is a concert, not a church and I'm sure Key focused on the lovely Shawols and not on one dude who draws on his tablet. Do you honestly expect everyone who attends a concert is a stan?
