ENHYPEN’s Jay Apologizes For His Comments About Korean History
ENHYPEN’s Jay has made an apology in regards to the allegations that he made disparaging comments about Korean history.
Jay took to ENHYPEN’s official fan community on Weverse to give his apology.
His apology comes after a comment he made during a live broadcast he held with fellow member Sunghoon. Sunghon made a comment saying, “I find Korean history to be fun these days,” to which Jay replied, “I [prefer] world history. I learned a good amount of Korean history in school. I don’t think there’s that much information. If you just study for a couple weeks or skim over it, it’s over really quickly. It feels like a short story.”
Hello. This is ENHYPEN’s Jay.
After I concluded the Weverse Live today, I was very surprised to see fans’ reactions.
Regardless of the reason, I sincerely apologize to ENGENE for any discomfort and inconveniences that I have caused.
I spoke too negatively about the important topic of Korean history based only on my own personal impression. It is not a topic I should have rashly talked about with lack of knowledge. Today has become an opportunity for me to realize once again that I still have much to learn.
I had absolutely no intention of disregarding our proud history, but I recognize that my words may have caused others to feel that way, and that is my fault. I apologize.
Going forward, I will be more careful and study more so that I can become an artist ENGENE are not ashamed of.
I always learn so much from you all. Thank you.
