Kim Min Seok has spoken to the news outlet DongA Ilbo about his good deed, and he shared that his good friend Son Min Ho also took part in apprehending the suspect.
He said, “I was together with my labelmate Son Min Ho that day, and I feel sorry that it seems like I’m the only one being noticed for this. We just did what we had to do. I think anyone who saw that would have done the same thing. I’m a bit embarrassed that the story’s become known like this.”
