Kim Jung Hyun Writes To Fans On Social Media Addressing His Recent Hiatus And Future Plans
On September 25, Kim Jung Hyun returned to his personal Instagram account for the first time in several months.
Along with a photo of a park bench that his fans donated in his name, the actor wrote a letter to fans addressing his recent controversy, his hiatus, and his plans for the future.
Hello, this is Kim Jung Hyun.
If there are people who feel even a little uncomfortable at me writing this post, I’m sorry. I have gathered up the courage to speak my heart to those who have worried about me and prayed for me all this time.
For the past few months, I have wandered without knowing where rock bottom was. I was busy looking back on myself, and I felt empty because I had no place to rest. It was difficult even just to endure myself. But on the other hand, it was a time where I could carefully reflect on the very depths of my self.
I am someone who is very lacking. I regret that I lived until now without taking responsibility for the choices that I made. I acknowledge that I was wrong in being quick to blame others and not being able to take care of my own health. This post is a self-reflection that I am writing for myself.
I am an actor. No matter how I think about how I can repay and approach the public, I have nothing but acting. That’s how I signed with my current agency, Story J Company. The agency acknowledged me as I am and promised to take care of me, and I took courage from that. I have been moved by their warm approach. Thank you for being a partner in this path we will walk together.
I also want to thank the people with whom I worked at my last agency. Without those people, I wouldn’t be here today. We wish nothing but a bright future for each other. Moreover, before it’s too late, I want to thank the reporters who critiqued my wrongdoings in the past and sent me various messages through the articles they wrote.
Finally, I bow my head and thank from the bottom of my heart the fans who have waited for me all this time and given me strength. Because of all of you, I was able to stay strong. I will cherish the feelings that you have sent me as nourishment for my life, and I will no longer fall, or if I do fall, I will get up and walk on again.
I will walk cautiously step by step. I want to live by focusing on acting and repaying people with a good image. Once again, I apologize to all those who were hurt by me. I will devote myself to becoming a better person.
Kim Jung Hyun recently signed a new contract with Story J Company, which houses actors like Kim Tae Hee, Seo In Guk, Yoo Seung Ho, and more. The actor had contract issues with his former agency, which both parties resolved in May of this year. The contract issues became part of a wider controversy that involved revisiting the actor’s behavior during the filming of his 2018 drama “Time,” as well as his relationship with actress Seo Ye Ji.
