Convicted drug user and Korean singer-trainee Han Seo Hee has issued an apology after she made comments on social media about her being a feminist.
In an Instagram post, she said, "I believe everyone felt uncomfortable by some of the things that I said on broadcast."
"Like I said several times during my [Instagram live] broadcast, it hasn't been long since I found out about feminism. I started to gain attention from you all as I was starting to learn about feminism. I think it was careless for me to say things like 'dress like a woman' or 'drive manly,'" she added.
Han Seo Hee was sentenced to three years in prison suspended for four years last June for smoking marijuana with Big Bang member T.O.P at his home in October last year.
In her post, she added, "From now on, I will study hard about feminism and become someone that can be a good influence. I will be careful with my words and actions, and not cause any more controversy. I sincerely apologize to those who were uncomfortable because of my broadcast."
Han Seo Hee held an Instagram Live broadcast where she claimed that she's a feminist.
"I'm an attention-seeker. I like receiving attention. I'm a feminist. My company already knows very well that I'm a feminist. They told me to do as I please and that they won't interfere," she previously said.
Despite her prison sentence, she also revealed that she will be debuting in a girl group in January.
"The members I will debut with are young and pretty. I decided to debut because I'll get cursed at even if I stay still, so I wanted to try starting. Given that situation, thank you for liking me."
T.O.P was indicted for marijuana use because of Han Seo Hee. He was sentenced to 10 months in prison suspended for two years last July.
