Boy group Block B has been under fire regarding their behaviour during an interview they gave in Thailand.
During the interview portion, the members displayed a questionable and immature behaviour and also made some controversial comments in regards to the recent floods in Thailand. When asked about the floods they answered, “I know about it. I was pretending I didn’t but I do.”
They also added, “We wish Thai people would heal the damage in their hearts through financial donations, and all we have is money.”
But they apologized and are currently reflecting upon their mistakes. They issued an official apology through their agency and also posted a video on Youtube where they were shown bowing to the viewers and fans. Leader Zico also shaved his head to show remorse for his actions as the leader of the group.
Block B’s agency also reported that member P.O was hospitalized for shock after he found out about a petition asking for their suicide.
However, there was no trace of the said petition online and fans speculated that the petition was used as a strategy from Block B’s agency to attract sympathy.
In regards to this complex situation, Block B’s Zico was recently quoted saying, “We’re deeply sorry and we regret what we did. We are reflecting upon our actions.”
Block B’s words deeply touched 2PM‘s Thai member Nichkhun whose reaction on Twitter was, “As a Thai person I feel offended by those who speak about the Thailand floods without thinking. Also instead of coming to Thailand and acting mindlessly, please respect the country’s manners, and only act in a proper way.” 2PM members Chansung and Junho also tweeted about the incident.
Block B recently appeared on KBS 2TV‘s “Entertainment Weekly”. On the February 25 broadcast of “Entertainment Weekly,” Block B members gave an interview where they confessed their mistakes and also showed that they were seriously reflecting on themselves.
When asked about how they felt about 2PM Nickchun’s piece of advice, Zico commented, “What Nichkhun sunbae said was the truth. We understood that what we did was a big mistake. What we did didn’t include and damage ourselves only but Korea‘s people as a whole. We also understood that our actions damaged the reputation of K-Pop singers.”
They also added, “As Korean singers we truly feel sorry for having been a disappointment and for having brought shame to our country’s people and our fans. We’re deeply regretting our actions and are reflecting upon them.”
Don’t you think the time has come for Block B to be forgiven?
