First of all, we sincerely apologize for sharing this unpleasant news. It is true that there has been a conflict between our character’s acquaintance with the employee. Actor Lee Ji Hoon tried to apologize on the day it happened, and we think it’s unfortunate that it didn’t happen smoothly.
The character thinks deeply about his friend visiting the set and causing a disturbance, and tries to keep in touch with the employee through the production team because the employee in question is not yet available.
However, regarding the allegation that he “took off his pants and caused an uproar,” it seems that [the employee] wrote in this way about his hasty change of clothes due to his busy schedule. However, we apologize to the bricklayers who felt uncomfortable because of this. We will be very careful in the future, but hopefully there is no disagreement on this.
This character is aware of the seriousness of the incident and shows in depth. We hope he can contact [the staff] and resolve the matter amicably. We extend our apologies for hurting so many people.”
