Park Woo-Jin's Letter of Apology
Hi, this is Park Woo-jin of WannaOne. I'm deeply sorry for my actions in public and the disturbance I caused. Ji-hoon and I are close friends, and we tend to rough things up a bit, but I guess I wasn't considerate enough to realize that such behavior could be offensive to some people. I'll be more discreet from now on, and try my best to show you my good sides.」
Park Ji-hoon's Letter of Apology
Wannables this is Ji-hoon. First of all, I'm sorry for all the commotion. We're of the same age, the only ones in the group, so we tend to rough things up a bit when we hang out together, and I guess that's what caused the controversy. After what you saw in the clip, Woo-jin tidies up my hair and we chat all the way boarding the plane. I wasn't offended at all, and I wasn't hurt emotionally nor physically. Nothing happened between us, we're close as ever, so I hope you're not worried too much. I'll be more cautious with my actions, so as to spare everyone a controversy like this one.
