Seventeen's Mingyu apologizes for May's Itaewon controversy during 'Heng:garae' press conference


Seventeen's Mingyu personally apologized for his recent Itaewon controversy.

The Pledis Entertainment boy group held a press conference promoting their 7th mini album 'Heng:garae' on June 22 KST when the topic of Mingyu going to Itaewon with idol friends during May's COVID-19 social distancing came up.

"I wanted to directly express my sincere apology for the disappointment I brought to many people through my recent wrongdoings,"
he stated. "I am also sincerely sorry to all the fans who are always giving me a lot of support and love, the hard-working members, and to those who are trying their best to overcome this crisis. In the future, I will show you side of me that will not disappoint through good action."

Meanwhile, the idol friends who accompanied him to Itaewon, BTS's Jungkook, ASTRO's Cha Eun Woo, and NCT's Jaehyun, have all released separate apologies.

I am literally speechless

He didn't do anything wrong in the first place, he is a grown man and hr can decide whether to go meet with some friends or not and just because he is a celebrity doesn't mean anything he does is a sin

He apologized even though he didn't have to and no kneitzens are still criticizing him because he is too late

Like please what is he supposed to do to not get hated on

And yeah he probably apologized to not affect his group's comeback which is completely well thought and kneitzens should just shut the heck up
