Siwon apologizes for his dog biting a neighbor, leading to her death

On September 30, the CEO of Hanilkwan, an upscale Korean restaurant, got bitten by a neighbor’s dog that wasn’t on a leash. The woman passed away from sepsis six days later, and the dog was revealed to be Choi Siwon’s and his family’s.

On October 21, Choi Siwon wrote an apology on his personal Instagram, saying, “This is Choi Siwon. I bow my head in apology to the bereaved family, who must be going through great shock and sorrow right now. I feel very apologetic for the incident that our family’s dog was recently involved in. I extend my sincerest condolences to the family of the deceased.”

He continued, “As a member of a family raising a dog, I feel a great sense of responsibility. I should’ve kept close supervision at all times, but my carelessness led to a horrible incident and I am deeply reflecting. I will make sure this doesn’t happen again. I apologize for causing trouble. May she rest in peace.”

The older sister and co-CEO of Hanilkwan later stated in an interview, “It’s true that my sister passed away from a secondary infection, along with some other complications, after getting bitten by their dog. However, we decided to forgive them because we were close as neighbors, and loathing them will not bring my sister back.”

She continued, “My sister’s son and I want to mourn her passing quietly. We don’t plan on taking any legal action against [Choi Siwon’s] family. We don’t want to be compensated. My sister’s son is actually around the same age as Choi Siwon. They’re both young. It’s tragic that my sister passed away, but I don’t want to [ruin] the lives of these young people. Choi Siwon visited our family several times to apologize. He even cried at the funeral. I held onto his two hands and forgave him.”
