SBS Announcer Shares Formal Apology for Rude Remarks Toward Junsu and Fans
After getting caught up in a controversy for making rude remarks toward JYJ’s Junsu and his fans during a recent promotional event, SBS announcer Park Sang Do has released an official apology.
On April 23, Junsu made an appearance at the opening ceremony of the Goyang International Flower Expo as the City of Goyang’s honorary ambassador. At the event, he congratulated the start of the event, saying, “I’ve grown up in the city of Goyang. I’m happy that I’ve been invited to such a meaningful event. My dad encouraged me to be here as well.”
However, throughout the event, the announcer made disrespectful comments to Junsu and his fans while MCing, which caused many people to criticize his unprofessional and ill-mannered behavior. In response, Junsu’s agency, C-JeS Entertainment, requested a formal apology from Park Sang Do: “The remarks made by announcer Park Sang Do toward Kim Junsu were problematic. There needs to be an apology.”
On April 24, announcer Park Sang Do shared his apology through Star News, saying, “I believe that as a host, offending a guest is a mistake that is inexcusable, in any situation. I am sorry. I will support Kim Junsu’s future activities. Once again, I apologize.”
