Ji Soo, who was under scrutiny for allegations of school bullying and sexual assault, has apologized to his past victims and to the public in a handwritten letter. The actor's company Keyeast released a press statement after the South Korean actor was accused of filming himself having sex in the school bathroom and assaulting a student in the past.
Taking to his official Instagram handle, the 'My First First Love' star's apology letter read: "I sincerely apologize to the people who suffered because of me. There is no excuse for my past misconduct. They were things that cannot be forgiven." He further went on to say that as he started his career in acting, he received an undeserved amount of attention from the public with his buried past.
