On March 13 KST, MAKEUS Entertainment revealed the official apology by Jung Joon Young and announced they will be sharing their official statement tomorrow.
Jung Joon Young's apology reads as follows:
"I am writing to you with embarrassment and a guilty conscience.
I, Jung Joon Young, arrived back in Korea on March 12 and realized the seriousness of the situation. It's already too late but I want to deliver an apology to the people who have given me attention and another chance.
I admit to all of my sins that have been reported. I have filmed women without consent and have distributed in social media chat rooms, and I've felt no guilt while doing so.
As a public figure, it was a very careless act worthy of criticism.
I kneel on my knees and want to apology to the women in the videos who've faced the disgusting truth through this case and feel anger beyond disappointment and shock.
I will leave all the programs I was on and will halt entertainment promotions. I will not take time of reflection but will let go of everything as a public figure, and look back at my unethical, unlawful acts which are considered a crime for the rest of my life.
Out of all, I want to apologize to the women who were harmed by my acts, to those who went beyond disappointment and felt anger, and to those who made me a public figure and cared for me.
I will properly participate in the investigation which is set to start on the morning of the 14th with all honesty. I will take all the punishment for my crime.
I once again deeply apologize. I am sorry."
