In the afternoon of March 17th, Jang Sung Kyu took to his Instagram to apologize to upset IZ*ONE fans and listeners for his remark on his morning radio show. In the caption, he wrote,
"I sincerely apologize to IZ*ONE and WIZONE for quizzing the question shown above(referring to the first image on his post) on my radio show earlier today. I have been thinking the most important trait of the radio DJ is being considerate of others. But I have read such a thoughtless question without any hesitation and I am truly ashamed of this action. I am even more ashamed I realized that I have been careless only after receiving many DM's.
I reevaluated and I admit that I and our team have been inconsiderate of IZ*ONE members and WIZONEs. I am sorry.
I have been thinking of myself as a sensitive person who knows the basics but I saw I was actually turning into an arrogant person who forgets where he came from. I will work harder to become the person I want to be, a thoughtful and humble DJ.
I am sorry again."
