Kim Min Gwi Shares Handwritten Apology Letter Regarding His Recent Controversy
Actor Kim Min Gwi has shared a handwritten letter of apology regarding his recent controversy.
On July 24, someone claiming to be Kim Min Gwi’s ex-girlfriend shared a post online alleging that the actor had repeatedly cheated on her during their six-year relationship. She also said that he had violated COVID-19 quarantine restrictions to cheat on her.
On July 26, Kim Min Gwi’s agency, Big Picture Entertainment, said that the actor acknowledged his wrongdoings in his personal life but denied that he had violated COVID-19 quarantine restrictions when he tested positive for the virus back in May.
On July 27, Kim Min Gwi shared the following letter on his personal Instagram account:
Hello, this is Kim Min Gwi.
I apologize for having recently caused a scandal with my personal life.
After reading what that person had written, I thought about how I acted in the past. I clearly recognized my wrongdoings and sent her my regrets and apologies.
Regardless of the reason, I did wrong in hurting someone who had shared so much with me for a significant period of time. I hope that that person does not suffer any damage from this going forward. Once again, I express my sincere apologies to her.
About the issues regarding the COVID-19 restrictions: On Friday, May 21, someone I had been in contact with tested positive for COVID-19, so I went to get tested that same day. I received a negative result and the disease control authorities advised me to minimize my daily movements and move to my residence before I was classified as a close contact. With this advice in mind, I carried out my daily activities.
On May 22, I received notice that I had to self-quarantine from the disease control authorities. I followed their instructions and never left the area where I had to quarantine. I apologize for not being more proactive in responding to these reports, which became more controversial during these sensitive and difficult times.
I would also like to apologize to my seniors and colleagues who were cheering me on.
In the future, I will work hard to be more mature in my personal life so that I can be honorable and accountable to myself.
Kim Min Gwi is currently appearing in the JTBC drama “Nevertheless.”
