It was recently announced that Gil of Leessang will make his first public appearance in eight months in late December at the upcoming UNION concert.
Titled HAPxCHAE (Union), the concert will feature both members of Leessang (Gary and Gil), Jungin, and Skull & Haha and will be held at SK Handball Stadium in Olympic Park on December 30th and 31st.
According to LeeSsang’s management, “This concert has been in development since the beginning of the year. We have spent a great deal of time debating Gil’s appearance but we think at this point, it will be best for him to appear before the public and personally ask for forgiveness.”
This will be Gil’s first public appearance in eight months since his DUI charge this past March. This conviction resulted in his resignation from popular show Infinity Challenge and also his hiatus from activities as he reflects on his actions. He has expressed his plans to apologize to fans and ask for forgiveness personally as he has been focusing on only music. This incident has been a heavy burden on Gil and he hopes for remission as he comes forward to make his first personal apology since the initial incident.
Gil was not the only one who left Infinity Challenge due to a conviction. Recently, Noh Hong Chul was involved in a car accident and was confirmed to have been driving under the influence. However, out of consideration for Infinity Challenge‘s fans, he made his departure from the show prior to any publicly conclusive verdict.
