Choi Woo Sik Posts Clarification About “Controversial” Photo


Actor Choi Woo Sik has given an explanation after a picture that he posted on Instagram caused some confusion among fans.

The actor posted the clarification to his Instagram on April 29, saying, “I’m sorry for posting a picture that may have been misunderstood. The picture was of me imitating a gesture of a hip hop artist that I like called Drake. I didn’t intend any hidden meaning in the photo, but I’m very sorry for the confusion it has caused.”

The photo in question shows Choi Woo Shik as he scowls while making a strange hand gesture. After some netizens began to assert that the gesture was a symbol for the online community Ilbe, the actor removed the photo and posted the above apology.
