The apology came after Kwanghee mentioned the actor during his appearance on the YouTube show Pinggyego, hosted by Yoo Jae Suk. The episode also had Kwanghee’s close friend and co-member of ZE:AIm Siwan, and Jee Seok Jin as guests.

During their conversation, Yoo Jae Suk asked if Kwanghee and Siwan were close enough to be considered best friends. Siwan teasingly answered that since everyone around them keeps calling them best friends, he has also started believing it.

Jee Seok Jin then asked if Kwanghee would be among the top two choices for Siwan as a traveling buddy. Before he could answer, Kwanghee jumped in, firing away at Siwan for traveling with Jung Hae In recently.

You traveled with Jung Hae In not too long ago. HE WENT WITH JUNG HAE IN! Like, are you out of your mind? How dare you post it on Instagram and ask him to go again?

Though it was a genuinely funny moment of friendly bickering, Kwanghee made a small mistake in his comment. He mentioned Jung Hae In’s name without the proper honorifics.

So, he took to Instagram and left a long comment apologizing to the actor under the photos from his trip with Siwan.

Hi, Jung Hae In-nim. This is Siwan’s friend, Kwanghee. Nice to meet you! Today, on September 16th’s episode of ‘Pinggyego,’ I was talking to Siwan about his trip with you. And I got so excited about it that I blurted out, ‘YOU TRAVELED WITH JUNG HAE IN.’ When I watched the aired episode, it caught my attention, and I’ve been worried about the fact that I referred to you so casually, without using the –nim suffix, when I’ve never even met you. So I wanted to leave you a comment to explain and wish you well. I hope you have a fantastic day!
