Marco apologizes for denying rumors initially
The day before the news broke, Marco had participated in a group chat with some fans and denied the dating rumors.
Later on May 17, Marco posted an apology on his personal Instagram account.
“This is Marco.
I apologize for causing fans concern. Yesterday, during the open chatting event, my speech and behavior caused serious disappointment to those who have trusted me and cheered me.
I was at fault for trying to set my fans at ease through lies. I was afraid of causing harm to a lot of people, so even though I’m someone who is able to work through the love of fans, I turned away from the fact that the truthful stance was the right one to take.
I can only apologize for hurting my fans through my mistaken judgment and false excuses. I know that an apology won’t erase the feelings of disappointment and hurt, but I will never stop reflecting on my actions. I will work hard in order to not disappoint you like this again and reflect on the criticism I have received for my immature actions.
Once again, I apologize. I’m sorry.”
