Kangta Personally Apologizes For Recent Events + Announces Decision To Cancel Release Of New Song
Kangta has announced his decision to cancel the release of his new song following recent events.
On August 4, Kangta took to his personal Instagram account to apologize and announcing some important decisions related to his work. His statement reads as follows.
Hello, this is Kangta.
I want to bow my head and apologize for causing deep disappointment and pain to the fans who have loved and supported me for a long time with a personal matter. Also, I want to apologize once again to those who have been hurt by me and those around me, as well as those who were unknowingly brought up during this.
As I have been active and loved for a long time, I should have also been better with my personal life as well, and there is no room for excuses here and everything is a result of my own lacking and negligence. Henceforth, I will look back on past times and deeply reflect on my actions, doing my best to become a more mature person.
I will be canceling the release of my new song, which was scheduled for today, and for my musical and concerts, as they are activities that have already been planned and are matters that I cannot make decisions on by myself, I will do my best to go in a direction that minimizes the damages.
Once again, I deeply apologize for causing concern to my fans.
I am sincerely sorry.

안녕하세요 강타입니다. 오랫 동안 저를 사랑해주시고 응원해주신 팬 여러분께 개인적인 일로 깊은 실망과 상처를 드린 점 머리 숙여 사과드립니다. 또한 저로 인해 상처받은 당사자분과 주변 사람들, 본의 아니게 언급되신 분들께 다시 한번 죄송하다는 말씀드립니다. 오랜 기간 사랑받으며 활동해온 만큼 개인적인 모습에도 좋은 모습을 보여드렸어야 했는데 이 모든 일은 변명의 여지 없이 저의 부족함과 불찰로 비롯된 것입니다.앞으로 지난 시간을 되돌아 보며 깊이 반성하고 성숙한 사람이 되도록 노력하겠습니다. 금일 발매 예정이었던 신곡 공개는 취소하며 뮤지컬과 콘서트등 이미 정해져 있던 활동은 저 혼자 결정할 수 없는 부분이므로 관계된 모든 분들의 피해를 최소화하는 방향으로 최선의 노력을 다하겠습니다. 다시 한번 팬 여러분께 심려를 끼친 점 깊이 사과 드립니다. 진심으로 죄송합니다.
