Gil Performs on Stage for First Time Since DUI Controversy: Apologizes for Past Actions


Leessang has reunited in a year-end concert. Gil appeared in public for the first time in eight months since his DUI incident and has apologized.

On December 30, Leessang, Jung In, Skull and Haha collaborated in a year-end concert in Seoul, and as this was the first stage that Gil performed on since eight months ago, it has garnered a lot of attention.

Gil said during the concert, “I’m holding a microphone for the first time in a long time. I’m very nervous. I thought a lot about what I would say when I saw you again, and I missed you. And I’m so sorry and sorry again.”

Gil was caught driving under the influence in April, and consequently halted all activities including “Infinity Challenge.”

When the audience chanted, “It’s okay,” Gil said, “I thought a lot about what I should say and I climbed mountain after mountain. But I really missed this. I’m so sorry toward everyone who was hurt because of me, the “Infinity Challenge” members who had to apologize on my behalf, and most of all to Kang Gary.”

With the atmosphere feeling solemn, Gary said, “Before Gil starts crying, we should move on to the next song,” and continued on with the performance.

In the collaboration concert between Leessang, Jung In, Skull and Haha, they performed about 30 songs in the span of about 150 minutes. There were five major themes in the concert. Skull and Haha were on the first stage, Jung In was on the second, Leessang was on the third and they all performed their own repertoire. In the fourth and fifth stages that followed, the artists collaborated in different combinations to.
