In his letter, the actor apologized for disappointing his fans and vowed to work on himself.

Hello. This is Choi Hyun Wook.

Firstly, I’m really sorry to have disappointed the fans. It would not enough for me to act responsibly in every moment, but I even disappointed many due to my careless actions.

I apologize once again to the drama’s director and writer, as well as the staff and other actors, as well as the many who are working with us.

I will humbly accept the scolding and the warnings, looking back upon myself, and work hard to show you a more mature side of myself.

Netizens couldn’t help but laugh at the actor’s handwriting. Still, there were some who defended the actor’s handwriting as sincere and undeniably adorable.

  • “This reminds me of that famous Elementary School student meme.”
  • “His handwriting isn’t the problem. This apology is shallow and doesn’t mean anything.”
  • “I think it might have been better if he stayed silent, seeing how he is being ridiculed regardless.”
  • “I am sure that he was, at the very least, being sincere, LOL.”
  • “I mean it is legible…”
  • “They should have given him a paper with lines on it.”
  • “I have a family member with horrible handwriting.”
  • “LOL, but his handwriting is cute, LOL. It is legible, too. I’ve seen a lot of bad handwriting, and this looks like a child tried their best.”
