Ms. Gong Hyo Jin, whom I love! First of all, I’m really sorry. I’m very hurt and sorry to think that my account caused many issues that escalated to this extent. I understood your comment without any misunderstanding, and I decided to cheer you on in a way that you’d like more. And when I temporarily closed my account, I did it hoping that the misunderstanding wouldn’t spread further. I’m saying this because I think other fans misunderstood. I’m a huge fan of yours, and I’ll cheer you on until you win awards even after 20 years or 40 years. I’d like to once again apologize for the inconvenience caused to you and fans.
