iKON's Junhoe apologises again for IG incident at comeback press conference

The press conference for iKON’s new album “New Kids : The Final” took place on October 1. Junhoe mentioned the recent controversy over his Instagram post and made an apology once again.

He began, “I am so sorry that I disappointed many fans greatly with this incident. I am reflecting upon myself again and again. I promise that something like this will never happen again. I especially realized once again that I should always treat my fans with gratitude and cherish them. I will be thankful for every moment as I promote, and I will work to show good sides of myself.”

He continued, “As I caused an incident like that with not much time left until the album release, I was ashamed to face the members. I am ashamed to face Yang Hyun Suk, our members, and our fans. Yang Hyun Suk cautioned me and told me to reflect on myself.”

B.I commented, “There was a negative incident ahead of the comeback, but as the members know that Junhoe is sincerely sorry, we tried to comfort him rather than scolding him. We told Junhoe that this is a chance to grow and become a better person.”

iKON’s “New Kids : The Final” will be released on October 1 at 6 p.m. KST.

don't know what else he could do besides apologize, it's definitely blown up more than it should've :/ hopefully this'll blow over for him

I personally do not think that people are overreact on the issue, as he did act stupid and cocky.

But I feel so bad for Ikon members, never got into the group, but I like Jinhwan and Donghyuk.

It’s very hard to close that Pandora’s box in my opinion.
Now fans know for a fact that you think of them as ATMs and nothing more. It sucks but there it is.

seems silly to suggest he's never going to stick his foot in his mouth again ....

and perhaps he will speak more nicely in response to fans, because they do make his career stronger. This experience does have to be humbling.
