Gagman Choi Young Soo complained that he felt he was being unjustly judged in a new interview with Spotv. The comedian was caught in controversy and eventually fired after footage showed him allegedly hitting Busters' Chaeyeon on a live broadcast.
Choi Young Soo stated that the two had a "close relationship" and that the scene captured in the footage was role-playing. He stated: "I usually play with Chaeyeon because we are really close. You could have misunderstood by seeing it at the angle." He continued, stating that he felt wronged for being fired after being with EBS for 13 years.
He continued, stating that he was "most concerned about Chaeyeon. We met today and she cried when she saw me. She felt guilty that her uncle was in this state because of her. She must have been hurt. I am most worried about her. I sincerely reflect upon this controversy."
However, netizens aren't taking Choi Young Soo's claims seriously, stating:
"The video doesn't seem like a joke..."
"Look at your expression in the video. What a low life."
"Don't leave the victim and abuser together."
What do you think of this situation?
